Junior E.A.G.L.E. Camp: May 31 - June 5, 2020
Rising 6th – 8th Grade
Exploring Agriculture & Gaining Leadership Experience (E.A.G.L.E.) 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 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.
Meals will be provided in one of the newly-renovated campus dining locations. All dietary restrictions and allergies are taken into consideration for each meal.
