Discover a Camp Meant for You
Camp Central for College Candidates is a summer science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) learning experience for rising seventh graders. Led by CMU faculty, teacher education students and professional staff members, Camp Central will challenge students to achieve their best in STEAM learning through exciting classroom and laboratory activities specifically designed for students their age. A future-focused program, the camp helps students explore STEAM careers, engage in real-world projects and participate in a college campus living experience.
Why is CMU doing this?
CMU’s goal for Camp Central is to bring together expertise from across campus and create campus synergies in the areas of teacher education, leadership education, STEAM education and diversity experiences. It will provide the CMU students in teacher education and leadership programs opportunities to practice their crafts. Another goal is to build capacity and relationships for future CMU program connections with students, educators and P-12 school communities. Most importantly, it will enhance the CMU students’ lives and fuel their future dreams.
Camp Central will provide academic enrichment opportunities for middle school students to explore STEAM learning and gain awareness of college possibilities in their future. They will also learn leadership skills… and have FUN.
