Earth Camp was last week. You can follow the blog here:

Earth Camp is a week-long experience sponsored by the Department at the University of Michigan and Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Our goal is to educate 9th grade students about Earth science by getting them outdoors and exploring new environments. Students will stay in dormitories on campus, eat in the dining halls, and have time in the evenings to explore the U-M campus. In addition, students are exposed to career opportunities to highlight the range of possibilities and benefits of a degree in Earth and environmental sciences.



We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, Earth and Environmental Sciences needs you—because the world needs Victors.
