Each year SAME sponsors four Engineering & Construction Camps for high school students to provide them with first-hand experience in engineering and construction. The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, U.S. Navy Seabees in Port Hueneme, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Research & Development Center in Vicksburg, and the U.S. Marine Corps Base and Engineer School at Camp Lejeune are co-sponsors of the camps. Learn more about the Engineering & Construction Camps.
The Engineering & Construction Camps committee develops strong partnerships with Posts in order to encourage participation in the annual SAME Engineering & Construction Camps. Camp participants discover the endless possibilities and benefits of service academy enrollment, with the goal of strengthening the nation's infrastructure by pursuing careers in, and related to, military engineering/public service. By increasing Sustaining Member participation, the committee and the Posts will continue to enhance the educational value of the camps and bring more participants.
This supports one of the key strategic objectives of SAME: to mentor future engineers.
