Two years ago, my son applied and was accepted to the SAME Engineering and construction camp at USAFA. It is a wonderful opportunity to see the USAFA campus while participating in a variety of problem based learning opportunities, construction challenges, and team building activities. I have no proof, but I believe DS's participation helped his WCS for admission to the Academy. For more information see http://samecamps.org/ You will need to be sponsored by a SAME post. They pay your airfare and half the camp registration fee. It is open to high school students who have completed their freshman year of high school and are interested in attending a SA. Any questions feel free to send me a PM.
