2015 Summer Camps

The Society of American Military Engineers 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.  This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in becoming engineers to be exposed to engineering concepts and programs at our nation's military camps.  The camps are fully sponsored by the Phoenix SAME post.  The student's family is only obligated to make a deposit that is refundable once camp is attended.  There is no obligation to join any branch of the military service, all SAME asks is that the student take pictures, have a good time, and come to one of our fall meetings to give a presentation of their experience.  There are three service camps and we typically sponsor 2-3 students each year.  Students can apply for a specific camp or all three if no preference.  Please have your students go to, for information.

Interested students must send their completed applications to Phoenix Post Committee Chairmen, Joseph Matejcik,, or 623-856-7051, and James Schleich,, or 602-952-9123, no later than April 1, 2015.  Our committee will select the most qualified nominations from among the acceptable applications, notify nominated students and forward those applications to SAME National Headquarters for final camper selection.
