SAME-USMC MCB Camp Lejeune, NC STEM Engineering & Construction Camp
The SAME – US Marine Corps camp is geared toward students interested in pursuing engineering related studies in college or a service academy and is built on the steps Professionals encounter when working with a client to deliver sound installation and facilities related products.
Campers live, eat and complete activities as a squad of 10, under the guidance of a uniformed service member and two STEM related working professionals. Berthing is provided in Marine Corps barracks, meals are taken at galleys or in the field, and instruction is conducted at various sites aboard MCB Camp Lejeune.
