This one-week, residential program provides high school students the opportunity to learn about the research and outreach initiatives in Auburn’s School of Kinesiology. Students meet faculty and mentors to guide them in the many opportunities within the field of Kinesiology, which prepares students for careers in medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physical education, athletic training, academia, and coaching. Two sessions will be offered for GEAR UP students.

This camp serves rising 10th and 11th grade students.


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, dinner is held in The Village Dining facility, where they have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.
