Thank you to our 2021 sponsors who are helping to make the Engineering Challenge Camps possible:

COVID-19

We are continuously monitoring the situation and following university guidance. At this point, we are planning for our Engineering Challenge Camps to run in the summer of 2021, but will adjust as needed. We are looking into the possibility of virtual experiences if an in-person camp is not possible.

If in person camp is possible, we will follow strict guidelines and procedures to keep your camper as safe as possible. These guidelines will be in line with university protocol and are still developing.

For families who deferred their 2020 camp deposit to 2021, we will reach out to you the week before registration opens.
