The 21st Century Community Learning Centers Camp, coordinated by Auburn University's Truman Pierce Institute faculty and staff, through funding by the Alabama State Department of Education, is for Alabama's high school students who serve as 21st Century Community Learning Center tutors. The camp focuses on providing students with information and skills that will allow them to work successfully in 21st CCLC programs.

Students will further their math, writing, and reading skills, as well as learn about the natural sciences through hands-on experiences in the classroom and in the field. Students will learn to combine nature studies with art, music, and literature. Using skills learned at this camp, participants return to their school systems and serve a minimum of 40 hours working as tutors in a 21st CCLC extended-day program.

This week long residential camp is designed to:

  • Train high school students as tutors for 21st CCLC after-school and summer programs.
  • Encourage careers in education
  • Provide field experiences in life sciences: fisheries, horticulture, forestry, etc.
  • Provide enrichment activities incorporating nature into literature, art, music, etc.
  • Provide positive experiences on a university campus

Camp participants will experience campus-life while residing in Auburn's resident dormitories, eating at campus dining facilities, and enjoying evening social and recreational activities. Campers will have 24/7 counselor supervision.

HOUSING:

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.
