Camps for K-12 Students
The UB Sustainability Camp is a five day camp blending the STEM fields with sustainable impact around the globe. It is a unique experience combining hands on laboratory projects with field experience on campus and around the community. As a sustainable camp, we aim for a net zero carbon footprint while teaching students how to calculate and decrease their own carbon footprint.
All students entering 8th and 9th grade in the fall are eligible to attend the camp. Maximum camp enrollment is 30 students. Acceptance to our camps does not depend on high achieving academics or prior knowledge. Students who show enthusiasm for engineering and the STEM fields all have an equal chance of acceptance.
Transportation is available for residents of the City of Buffalo; bus stops will be scheduled after there is a final camp roster.
Thanks to our sponsors, Dupont and National Grid, students can attend our 2021 camp at no cost. As valued community partners of the University at Buffalo, National Grid and Dupont are committed to driving positive impact by protecting the environment and empowering our community.
Each camper who completed the UB Sustainability Camp will go home with camp swag including a T-Shirt, drawstring bag, water bottle, and more. Campers will also receive a solar powered car, a wind turbine, a certificate of completion and a one-of-a-kind experience in sustainability.
The health and safety of our campers and their families is extremely important to us. To keep campers, chaperones, parents and UB staff safe, the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences is taking extra precautions for in-person camps, in addition to abiding by UB's Health & Safety Guidlines.
