The Boys Exploring Science and Technology (BEST) Camp is committed to generating interest in science for all boys, engaging them in cooperative learning in science investigations, fostering confidence in science achievement, and encouraging their enrollment in future science courses and in science- and technology-related careers.

BEST Camp was established in 2004, its curriculum and structure modeled on the highly successful Girls and Science (GAS) Camp. Since then, nearly 350 middle school-aged boys have attended the camp from a variety of public, private, and home schools. Most participants are from the Nashville area, though we have had a number of campers from all across the country who stay with family or friends in the area while attending the camp.
