Microsoft Accepting Ninja Camp Applications for Students with Disabilities

Date: 1/9/2019

Last August, Microsoft launched a week-long Ninja Camp at their Redmond, WA campus for high school students with disabilities to provide an introduction to technology, life at Microsoft, and the future of accessibility. The goal for 2019 is to expand the camp to serve 50 middle and high school students (current 7th-10th graders).

Participants will develop digital skills using Microsoft products, connect with Microsoft employees with disabilities, learn to leverage their personal strengths, and train to join the next generation of Accessibility community leaders.

This free day camp will take place from 9:00am-4:00pm on August 12-16, 2019 at the Microsoft Corporate Campus in Redmond, WA. Students outside of the Seattle area are welcome to apply and are encouraged to work with their families to arrange housing and transportation to and from camp as needed.

Online applications are due by February 1, 2019. Applicants, their families, teachers, and community partners are invited to join the team for a Ninja Camp Q&A conference call on Thursday, January 24, 2019, at 4:00pm Pacific Time. Conference call numbers are: 206-800-4384, 425-616-0754 and 866-679-9995 (toll-free). Conference ID is 13346208#.

If accommodations are needed to join the Q&A call or if you have any questions in meantime, please contact ninjacamp@microsoft.com.
