Working with the network of SAME Posts, volunteers, and sponsors, the Camps Committee supports the development, maintenance, and growth of a variety of camps to provide in-person experiences to students interested in exploring STEM-related skills and careers. Camps help participants learn engineering and construction skills and principles through various build projects involving complex problem solving; experience the range of engineering fields they can explore based on their STEM interests; understand career options across the engineering sector; and interact with STEM volunteers and mentors. The net outcome is more STEM professionals available to meet needs of our nation.

Each year SAME supports camps across the county, including the Engineering & Construction Camps for high school students, to provide students with first-hand experience in STEM. The U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, U.S. Air Force at Scott AFB, U.S. Navy 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 Engineering & Construction camps. Additionally, Posts across the world support from one-day to multi-day camps, extending the reach of the Society to more students.
