About Our Camp
SEE Camp is an introductory camp to all types of engineering. We do not expect campers to have any experience in engineering. We will be covering broader topics related to engineering to provide campers an overview of different disciplines.
Mission & Vision
SEE Camp’s mission is to provide students with an introduction to a variety of engineering fields. Students will leave camp with a better understanding of real-world applications of engineering as well as more knowledge of their own personal interests. The camp also gives students the chance to experience life at the University of Michigan.
Testimonials from 2019 campers
“I met a lot of new people. It got me a taste of each avenue of engineering, in which I enjoyed. I also really liked experiencing the campus life. Sometimes I felt like a real college student.”
“I enjoyed the team challenges because we worked with different people every time. I also enjoyed the presentations. They gave good insight on the life of a college student and introduced us to programs available to participate in to fulfill our college potentials.”
“My favorite part of camp would be the experience of living on campus and also the multiple tours we did of North, Central, and South campus. I believe this experience will be invaluable as a prospective college student.”
Students will get to enjoy the real-life college experience and eat primarily at the Bursley Dining Hall for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Bursley Dining Hall provides a variety of options so students will always find something they like. There are also many vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, kosher, and halal options. Meals are served buffet style, with unlimited reserves. More information can be found at https://dining.umich.edu/menus-locations/dining-halls/bursley/
Campers will be assigned another camper as a roommate for the week. Men and women will not be roomed together. The Bursley Hall double rooms consist of two beds, dressers, desks, bookshelves, and closets. Campers will be given a room card granting access to their bedroom and bathrooms and a meal card granting you access to the dining hall.
