Note to Editors:
Colorado State University’s College of Agriculture is offering youth 14 to 18 years old the opportunity to learn about food-animal agriculture and equine sciences at this summer’s Camp Round-UP.
The Camp Round-UP program invites students from both urban and agricultural backgrounds to learn about animal agriculture through hands-on activities. Students will use science- and math-based activities with livestock, take tours of state-of-the-art facilities and listen to presentations by Colorado State faculty and graduate students.
The course curriculum focuses on incorporating science, math and agriculture into an environment that fosters teamwork. Lessons will cover animal agriculture industries including equine, beef, dairy, sheep and wool, swine, poultry and meat sciences.
Camp Round-Up runs June 16-June 19. Registration is now open and spaces are limited. Registration cost is $375; registration ends May 30. Students registering before May 10 receive a $25 discount. The cost of registration includes accommodations for four days and three nights in Colorado State residence halls with all meals provided, transportation, off-campus tour fees, animal science course curriculum, a camp T-shirt, notebook and other "2007 Camp Round-UP" memorabilia.
