Black Belt Community Foundation & Camp

In collaboration with the Black Belt Community Foundation (BBCF), the role of the Center for Educational Outreach and Engagement (CEOE) is to provide standards, curriculum, policy, and professional engagement support. These activities center around the four pillars of the Alabama State Department of Education’s (ALSDE) Plan 2020: Learners and Parents, Schools and Systems, Support Systems, and Education Professionals. The partnership between the BBCF and CEOE seeks to facilitate increased growth in student learning and achievement for all students in Alabama’s Black Belt, which assists in the realization of the ALSDE’s goal of Every Child a Graduate, Every Graduate Prepared.

Black Belt Legacy Camp
Summer 2019 Date TBA

Camp Overview

The Black Belt Legacy Camp is a summer residential camp for rising 9th–12th grade students living in Alabama’s Black Belt region. Through collaboration between the Black Belt Community Foundation and the Office of the Vice President for University Outreach, this week long camp provides students an opportunity to engage in academic, social and cultural experiences on the campus of Auburn University. Students are lead through activities that include opportunities to build leadership and team building skills and engage in career exploration.

This sponsored camp invites students from both private and public schools in 12 Black Belt counties. The resulting diversity enhances student interaction with youth from varied backgrounds while exposing them to the advantages of community engagement.


Campers will reside in the Hill Dormitories or the Quad dorms. They are designed in suites consisting of two double-occupancy rooms connected by a bathroom.


Campers will have various meal options for breakfast and lunch in The Student Center. Unlike breakfast and lunch and lunch, dinner is held in The Village Dining facility, where they have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.
