Should Boys Enroll in a Girls' Camp?

Editor's Note: When Gail from The Female Perspective on Computer Science got the chance to speak about encouraging girls to enter STEM fields, the question of whether an all girl environment would be better came up. The answer isn't easy to pick. -Virginia

I offered my perspective on computer science outreach in particular, drawing on 5+ years of experience. One question that came up was whether we should allow a boy enrol when he is interested in joining a girls-only camp. . . .
