E.A.G.L.E. Camp: July 15 – 20, 2018
Rising 6th – 8th Grade
Exploring Agriculture & Gaining Leadership Experience Camp is an opportunity for 6th-8th grade students to gain hands-on experience in the science and agriculture worlds. Campers will complete labs within different agricultural disciplines including Animal Sciences, Horticulture, Turfgrass, Biosystems Engineering and many others. The labs will be STEM based activities led by College of Agriculture faculty that will help student’s solve real-world problems.
There will also be tours of the research units and a field trip to a local farm. There will also be a service project at a local family owned farming operation. All of this in addition to the traditional social activities associated with summer camp (swimming, pizza parties and much more) make E.A.G.L.E. Camp a fun and productive experience.
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.
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.
