UB/National Grid Camp
To apply, an educational reference is required such as a teacher, guidance counselor, or after school program coordinator. Contact information for the reference is required as part of the application, but no letter of reference is necessary. We are especially interested in students from groups that are underrepresented in STEM professions.
Applying to a SEAS Summer Camp can now be done entirely online. New users will need to Create an Account in our Parent Portal first, and then they can begin a camp application. If you have any questions about your camp applicaiton(s), contact Steve Pilat at firstname.lastname@example.org
For the Greiner Hall dorms, parents can park in the Fargo lot directly in front of Greiner. Parking in front of Davis Hall can be either the Jarvis A or Jarvis B lots.

Yes. We will be serving a boxed lunch on the first and last days of the camp that cater to all dietary preferences.
All meals are included with the cost of the camp and will be served three (3) times per day along with two (2) snack times in between. There is no further cost associated with these meals.
There will be field trips or opportunities for campers to purchase candy, snacks, or other items from vending machines on campus. Therefore, campers are welcome to keep about $20 dollars (in small bills) on hand if they so choose. This, however, is optional.
Yes, but students will be instructed to turn them off during the daytime hours and activities of the camp. Phone use is permitted only during mealtimes. If this privilege is violated, cell phones will be temporarily confiscated by the camp’s chaperones.
Generally, no. Cell phone use is permitted only during mealtimes.
If you need to reach your camper in an emergency, please contact UB Police (716-645-2222) with your student’s name and ask them to alert one of our chaperones.
One of our head chaperones will then return your call immediately.
Since August is a very hot month, shorts and appropriate, non-revealing tops for both genders are permitted. However, shorts must be no shorter than the student’s fingertips when the student relaxes their hands at their sides. Low cut tops are not permitted nor are shirts with offensive sayings or imagery.
Flip flops are permitted but closed-toe shoes with rubber/nonslip soles are required for all field trips and lab work.
The business etiquette lunch requires business casual dress.
