Colorado State University is hosting an agricultural-themed summer camp for teenagers from June 15-19.
Sponsored by the College of Agricultural Sciences, the second annual Camp Round-UP is open to all students between the ages of 13 and 18. The summer camp provides hands-on activities on a wide array of agricultural topics as well as presentations from faculty, staff and students at Colorado State.
During Camp Round-UP, participants will get a taste of the college experience. Students will stay in the residence halls, eat in the dining halls and tour facilities around the campus.
Colorado State faculty will cover a broad agricultural-based curriculum involving such disciplines as soils and crops, agricultural business, horticulture, animal and equine sciences and current agricultural issues.
"Our summer camp is unique. After our great success last year, the Colorado State University agriculture students, who are organizing the camp, are excited to offer even more topics and hopefully have twice the campers, "said Jennifer Berg-Ramsey, coordinator instructor for Camp Round-UP. "Students will get hands-on agricultural experience in a fun, relaxed environment."
There are several pricing options for registration. From now until May 9, early-bird registration is $425. From May 9-23, regular registration is $475. The final date for registration is May 23.
