Virtual Camps

Typically, Alfred University welcomes high school students to our beautiful campus each year to take part in popular co-ed, week-long, day-long, academic and sports summer camps and institutes. Due to the popularity of the below camps and our ability to instruct virtually while in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering them in a safe, online learning format in the summer of 2020!
