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.
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 phone charger, a wind turbine, a certificate of completion and a one-of-a-kind experience in sustainability.
All students entering 8th and 9th grade come fall 2019 are eligible to attend the camp. Maximum camp enrollment is 20 students.
Camp tuition is $400 for the entire week and covers all camp materials, food and transportation.
Thanks to our sponsor, National Grid, we are proud to offer need-based scholarships which will bring the cost of the camp down to $150 per student for the entire week. Scholarship consideration is included with your application. We ask that scholarship applicants be from families with a household income less than $60K/year.
Applications will be accepted until all spots are filled. Applications will be reviewed and a decision sent out in 1-2 business days after submission.
We'd also like to thank our donors: Cannon Design, and Industrial Support Inc. for helping to make this camp possible.
