Each summer we welcome hundreds of students from all over the country to our beautiful campus to participate in exciting academic institutes 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 summer academic institutes are residential programs for rising 9th-12th graders. All are staffed by distinguished members of the University faculty. With Alfred University's excellence in teaching and commitment to offering quality programming, these institutes are among the most educational and fun collegiate summer academic programs in the country.

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 team of Head Camp Counselors (HCCs) and Camp Counselors (CCs), who are specially trained to serve as camp counselors, mentors and friends. Students stay in clean, students stay in clean residence halls and 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.
