Building Construction Camp: June 11-16, 2017

The Construction Management camp, conducted by faculty, staff and students from Auburn’s McWhorter School of Building Science, is offered to rising 11th and 12th grade students interested in the field of Construction Management.

Participants will learn about construction materials and methods and how to plan and safely manage a construction project. There will be opportunities for hands-on experience and each participant will utilize and practice their learned skills throughout the week while working together to build a Tiny House.

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. Attendees 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.

MEALS:

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.

FACILITIES:

The McWhorter School of Building Science is located in the M. Miller Gorrie Center, which opened in 2006. Gorrie Center earned the State of Alabama’s first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification. This state-of-the art “green” building is equipped with unmatched information technology. Students will also complete a construction project throughout the week at the Building Science Field Lab.
