The event is cosponsored by the Maine Department of Transportation, the UMaine College of Engineering, and the Federal Highway Administration. It is designed to introduce students at an early age to jobs and careers available in Maine’s transportation industry.

Accepted students will participate in field trips, leadership and team-building activities, and a series of age-appropriate workshops, with hands-on laboratory experiences all related to transportation mode, safety and products, alternative fuels, construction materials, and computer-aided design. Students also will participate in recreational activities at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center.

Campus Recreation Summer Camps

UMaine Campus Recreation and the Town of Orono have teamed up to offer Summer RAD camps for kids K-5th grade.  These camps are designed for campers looking to explore many different activities and share those experiences with other campers.  Your child will engage in their choice of activities in a safe, supervised, stimulating, non-competitive environment.  Our home base is located in the New Balance Student Recreation Center on campus, and we will be venturing into the town of Orono for many activities as well as the Greater Bangor Area. RAD Camp offers an assortment of activities including swimming, rock climbing, soccer, arts and crafts, canoeing, field games, library time, and many more. These specific opportunities we offer, are designed to develop self-esteem, leadership skills, responsibility, and teamwork. Our philosophy is environmentally oriented, so while at camp our directors and counselors will be promoting environmental consciousness/sustainability in all aspects of camp; a skill that your child will take into everyday life. Dates, times, and fees vary by the camp.
