Apply Now: World Class Engineering Camps Offered to High School Students

Each year, the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) sponsors three Engineering & Construction Camps for high school students, providing first-hand experience in engineering and construction.


These one-week camps, held in June and July 2016, are high energy, hands-on events for students and are led by professional staff of engineers from both private industry and the uniformed military services. Each camp has its own unique focus and theme and is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn what engineers do.

Application Process
If you know a high school student that is interested in attending one of the three camps, please encourage them to apply at

Applications are due by Friday, Mar. 25, 2016 and selections will be made by Wednesday, Apr. 6, 2016.
