Each summer Alfred University welcomes high school students from all over the country to our beautiful campus to participate in exciting academic and sports 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 Alfred, New York, a peaceful rural village in western New York State, where summer days are warm and the nights are cool and comfortable. Surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful meadows and valleys, our campus is the perfect place for students to spend an enjoyable week or two learning more about a favorite subject or sport.
All of our programs are staffed by distinguished members of the Alfred University faculty. Our summer academic camps are college-based, residential programs. The age range varies from program to program from as young as 12 to age 17. Please check our website for specific program age ranges.
With Alfred University's excellence in teaching and commitment to offering quality programming, these camps are among the most educational and fun collegiate summer academic programs in the country. Attendance is limited to allow for individualized attention and optimal use of equipment and facilities.
Our popular sports camps offer pre-college-aged athletes a great opportunity to advance their skills working with AU's award-winning head coaches 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, students enjoy organized recreational activities as well as free time for relaxation. Out-of-class supervision is provided by our Resident Directors (RDs) and Resident Advisors (RAs), who are specially trained to serve as camp counselors, guides, role models and friends. Students stay in University residence halls dedicated to summer campers, and cafeteria-style meals are served in the University dining hall. Living, dining and learning together, they have ample opportunity to get to know each other well and develop lasting friendships.
