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.

The labs will be STEM based activities led by College of Agriculture faculty that will help students solve real-world problems.
There will be tours of the research units, a field trip to a local farm, a service project at a local family-owned farming operation, and more! 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.
