CULSOC Summer Science Camps 2016

Join us for hands-on, action-packed, thought-provoking science camps on the Clemson University. All classes will be held in room G-26, Jordan Hall.

Students in our residential camps will be housed in gender-segregated dorms, eat in the campus cafeteria and be supervised by counselors through the Pre-Collegiate Programs Office of Clemson University. Outside of lab, students will participate in social events on the Clemson University campus, e.g. swimming, bowling, cookouts, etc. Airport transportation to and from the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport is available for an extra $100 fee each way.
