Rising 10th – 12th Grade

Limited Space – Register Soon!

Food Science Camp, conducted by faculty, staff, and students from Auburn's College of Agriculture is open to science-loving rising 10th – 12th graders. If you've ever wondered what makes sour candies so sour or why your soda goes flat – our 5-day residential camp is for you! Campers will have the opportunity to learn elements of food safety, participate in hands-on sensory experiments, study candy chemistry, and tour campus and industry facilities.

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.

MEALS:

Campers will have various meal options for breakfast and lunch in The Student Center. Dinner is held in The Terrell Dining facility, where campers will have unlimited options of a buffet-style meal.

FACILITIES:

Students will spend the majority of their time in the Poultry Science Building and laboratories.
