SAME Engineering and Construction Camps

The Society of American Military Engineers in collaboration with the Military Services, offers a series of engineering/STEM camps designed for High School students who excel in math, science and technology courses and are interested in pursuing engineering, architecture, or a related field in college. These one–week camps are high energy, hands–on events for students from across the country and around the world. The camps are led by a professional staff of engineers from both private industry and the uniformed military services.


Each camp has its own unique focus and theme and is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn what engineers do from professional engineers, learn practical skills and gain exposure to the military services. Information on eligibility and application process can be found at


If you are interested in attending one of these camps and meet all requirements, complete the application form. Return the form and a 1/2-page essay describing your post-high school education and career goals to the point of contact shown below. The deadline for turning in applications to the San Diego Post for 2016  will be Early Spring. Email or paper mail submittals are acceptable.


The San Diego Post pays airfare and one half of the registration fee for selected applicants. Campers will be responsible for the remaining half of the registration fee ($290). The Post’s Board of Directors selects one or two candidates for sponsorship after reviewing applications.
