Each year we welcome high school students from all over the country to our beautiful campus to participate in exciting academic and sports co-ed overnight summer camps. These programs provide young people with opportunities to learn more about their fields of interest, to sample life on a college campus, and to meet other students with similar interests and academic ability.
Our campus is located in the peaceful village of Alfred, set in the lovely countryside of western New York State, where summer days are warm and nights are cool and comfortable. Surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful meadows and valleys, Alfred University is the perfect place for students to spend time learning more about a favorite subject or sport, having fun, and making new friends.
Our camps are staffed by distinguished members of the Alfred community. With Alfred University's excellence in teaching and commitment to offering quality programming, these are among the most educational and fun collegiate summer academic programs in the country.
Our popular sports camps offer pre-college-aged athletes a great opportunity to advance their skills working with AU's award-winning head and assistant coaches. Sports campers benefit from the many resources of our McLane Physical Education Center and Fields, and the Bromeley-Daggett Equestrian Center at Maris Cuneo Equine Park.
When not in class, campers enjoy participating in planned recreational activities. Out-of-class supervision is provided by our team of Camp Counselors, who are specially trained to serve as positive role models, mentors and friends. Campers stay in University residence halls and dine in our University dining hall where cafeteria-style meals are served. Living, dining and learning together, campers have ample opportunity to get to know each other well and develop lasting friendships.
