Mentors & Staff

SAME Engineering & Construction Camps offer Young Members and Non commissioned Officers valuable opportunities to mentor tomorrow’s engineering leaders. Mentors assist with student activities and teach students about real-world architecture, engineering, environmental science or other related disciplines in which they have experience. Mentors spend the week at the camp and are assigned to groups of students to help guide, train, educate, coach and lead the campers through each day’s activities.

To become a camp mentor, you must be an SAME Young Member or Non commissioned Officer with a record of active participation at the Post, region, or national level; obtain an endorsement from the Post President who will be sponsoring you (paying for your travel to camp); have experience in mentoring or coaching young people; commit to attending the entire week-long camp; be experienced in military, civil or environmental engineering, or a related field, in the public or private sector; and be physically fit and healthy.

SAME Camp mentoring is Fun! It is rewarding! You WILL learn something, you WILL gain something and most important you WILL make an impact on the lives of more than just the ~100 campers in attendance!
