SAME Robins


Each year the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) offers a very unique series of engineering camps designed for High School students who excel in math, science and technical courses and are interested in pursuing engineering 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 military services.  The three Engineering & Construction Camps are: the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA) (Colorado Springs, CO), U.S Marine Corps (Camp LeJune, NC) and U.S. Army Camp (Vicksburg, MS). 

To make this opportunity possible the Robins Air Force Base SAME Post will pay all registration and travel expenses for one aspiring high school student to attend.  All students have to do is fill out an application and submit in accordance with the attached application instructions.  The participant selected will discover the endless possibilities and benefits of engineering and its importance to strengthening the nation's infrastructure.  It also exposes participants to service academy enrollment for those interested in pursuing careers in, and related to, military engineering/public service.

SAME Robins Post will sponsor 1  high school student (rising 10th or 11th grader) to attend and engineering/STEM summer camp in June 2017.  Camps include US Air Force Academy, Army, Marines and Atlanta STEM.  The Atlanta STEM Camp has limited availability based on them accommodating a waiting list of students from last year. See the attached for more information on dates and locations or go to for more information on the camp opportunities.   Applicants must meet age and GPA guidelines for consideration.  Applications will be evaluated by the SAME post and forwarded to SAME National for concurrence.  To be considered for the camp slot, complete applications must be submitted  by March 24, 2017.  SAME National will notify the Post of the selectee in mid-April.
