SAME Engineering Camps

 

The Society of American Military Engineers offers a very unique series of engineering camps designed for High School students who excel in math, science and technical courses and are interested in pursuing engineering in college. These one–week camps are high energy, hands–on events for students from across the country and around the world. The camps are led by a professional staff of engineers from both private industry and the military services. These exciting week–long camps take place during the summer months in a variety of settings—centered on a military base in the colorful Colorado Rockies, the beautiful Southern California Coast,  the historic Mississippi Valley.

There are 3 camps this year, and the Greater Kansas City Post will select our top applicants and submit their names to our National organization for final selection.  Our post can sponsor up to two campers.  Camp costs are $580 plus travel.  The Greater Kansas City SAME Post is pleased to support the successful applicant by paying for travel fees as well as half the camp stipend.
