Frequently Asked Questions
When is SEE Camp?
July 7th to July 13th, 2024
Who is eligible to attend?
High school students of all genders going into grades 10-11, especially those with limited access to engineering resources.
What does it mean for a student to have limited access to engineering?
A student has limited access to engineering resources if they experience a barrier to these resources. This barrier could be geographical such as those imposed or limited by school curricula, internet reliability, or transportation. A barrier could also be financial such as those imposed by material costs or enrollment fees. It could also be relational such as extensive familial responsibilities, or connections to those with a higher degree. This list is not exhaustive.

What is the refund policy?
Students will have 10 days after receiving their acceptance to accept their spot at camp, and the financial aid documents will be due at the end of this period as well. Students will have an additional four weeks to complete payment. After this time has passed, if a student needs to withdraw, then a prorated refund will be offered, depending on proximity to camp dates.
