Learn more about the 2024 Engineering Summer Camps!

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) is pleased to offer multiple sessions of engineering summer day camps for students in rising 5th through 10th grade. Changing the world is what engineers do - by solving problems with innovation and creativity, and by applying science and technology principles.

At UAH, our engineering summer camp programs are designed to introduce students to different engineering fields with classroom learning, hands-on projects, mentoring activities, tours, and much more. Participants will have a great time working with UAH faculty, staff, and current students as they explore engineering. 

For questions, please contact us at eng_camps@uah.edu.

APPLY FOR CAMP:

Applications are now open for 2024 summer camps! Links to register are within each camp description on this page by clicking on the date you are interested in applying for. Payment is due within 5 days of camp acceptance. Applicants will be considered registered once payment is received.

If the camp you are interested in says "WAITLIST" to the left of the date of the camp, this means that the camp is currently full. You are encouraged to submit a waitlist application, which will put you in line to be notified of any cancellations. Waitlist students are contacted on a first-come first serve basis and will be notified via email of any openings. 

If the camp you are interested in says "CAMP/WAITLIST FULL" to the left of the date of the camp, the camp roster and waitlist are full. There is still a form that you can fill out to join our mailing list with any updates, events, and opportunities that we may offer in the future.
