Sports Science Camp – Session 1: June 10-15, 2018; Session 2: June 24-29, 2018
Rising 9th – 12th Grade
Sports Science Camp, conducted by faculty and staff from Auburn University's School of Kinesiology in the College of Education, is an opportunity for students nationwide interested in the field of health science, physical activity, and sport performance.
This one-week, residential program provides high school students the opportunity to learn about the research and outreach initiatives in Auburn’s School of Kinesiology. Campers meet faculty and mentors to guide them in the many opportunities within the field of Kinesiology, which prepares students for careers in medicine, physical therapy, occupational therapy, physical education, athletic training, academia, and coaching.
Campers will experience work conducted in the many laboratories, including biomechanics, motor learning, cardio protection, thermal and infrared, molecular science, neuromechanics, vascular physiology, exercise psychophysiology, behavioral fitness, and muscle biochemistry.
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.
The School of Kinesiology is housed in a new facility built in 2013 consisting of 20 research laboratories as well as faculty and staff offices. Classrooms and physical activity space are located in the Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum and the Student Activities Center.
Kristin Roberts is the Administrator of Outreach Programs for the School of Kinesiology. She has been working with Kinesiology since September 2014 managing summer camps, outreach events, social media, website development, and public relations. The 26 Kinesiology faculty members teach undergraduate and graduate classes and conduct cutting-edge research related to exercise science, physiology, physical education, motor development, biomechanics, and more.
