The University of Maine is partnering with individuals and businesses like yours to offer an opportunity to girls and boys entering grades nine through twelve to be introduced to computer modeling in a summer camp environment. The College of Engineering is hosting the sixth annualCreative Design at CAD Camp at UM from June 23 – June 28, 2013.

The goal of Creative Design at CAD Camp is to encourage participants to consider careers related to technology. Campers will spend half days creating three-dimensional models using the engineering design platform “MicroStation” and half days in team-building recreation activities.

The camp is designed to appeal to all campers, including the girls and minorities who might not consider engineering or engineering technology career fields.

Will you please sponsor a camper to learn about Creative Design at CAD Camp?

From sponsored campers:

“Dear Sponsor, I would like to thank you for sponsoring me for CAD camp. I had a lot of fun using the CAD software. I am thrilled that I had the opportunity to get acquainted with the CAD program because there is no CAD program at my school.” – Ashley

“I didn’t know what CAD was when I was filling out the forms to come here for the week. But once I got here, it was fun and I’m going to take it for a class when I get back to school.” – Sammy (a girl)

CAD Camp strives to subsidize all campers and also to reach out to underrepresented and disadvantaged populations through scholarships. Our camp budget this year is $27,500 for 40 campers, costing $800 per resident and $575 per day camper. These costs are prohibitively high for many Maine families.

We have worked hard to recruit a number of companies, individuals, and public entities to contribute toward camp scholarships. Please consider joining the State of Maine Department of Transportation, Bath Iron Wroks, Eastern Maine Community College, Symmetry Systems, James Sewall, H.E. Sargent,the Maine Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Bentley Systems, Inc., and others by becoming a camp sponsor.
