About the Camp

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.

Camp Features

  • Individualized hands on activities, games, and competitions
  • STEM Themes: energy, product lifecycle, ecology, and carbon footprint
  • Societal Factors: global, social, economic, and environmental impact
  • Community engagement
  • Various tours including:
    • Outdoors tour of UB North Campus covering the Ellicott complex, Letchworth Woods, Lake Lasalle, University Garden, and UB Solar Strand

Who Can Attend?

All students entering 8th and 9th grade in the fall are eligible to attend the camp. Maximum camp enrollment is 15 students.

Cost

Thanks to our sponsor, Dupont, students can attend our 2021 camp at no cost. As part of the Clear Into the Future (CITF) initiative, Dupont is committed to driving positive impact by protecting the environment and empowering our community. 

What Do Campers Leave With?

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.

Your health and safety is important to us.

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.
