Camp Information

Venue

Camp activities will occur in the STEM Building BME Laboratories on the second floor and in the shop area on the first floor. Check out the full schedule.

Dress Code

BME camp activities take place in laboratory and engineering shop areas.  When working in these areas, students are required to wear long pants and shoes that completely cover the feet –closed toes and heels. Students may bring sweat pants to wear over shorts, if they choose.

Housing and Meals

This is a residential camp and participating by commuting is not possible.  BME campers will be housed in campus housing.  In prior years, the camp has used Hausdoerffer Hall.  It is designed as apartment style housing for up to 5 students sharing a bathroom and small kitchenette.  It is one of the newest residential facilities on campus.  Actual housing will be subject to availability through Event Services.  Students are segregated by gender.  Three biomedical engineering students will be camp counselors and will also be housed in the same facility near the campers for the duration of the camp.  Linens will be provided.

Meals will be in the Atrium at Eickhoff Hall, with the exception of the welcome picnic on Sunday July 25th in the STEM Forum and dinner on Wednesday evening when pizza will be provided in the STEM Building.  The Atrium at Eickhoff offers a variety of foods including vegetarian options.

Personal computers and WiFi

Personal computers are not required for camp activities.  However, attendees may bring personal laptops/tablets and WiFi connections will be available on campus and in the residence hall.  TCNJ and the BME department are not responsible for lost or stolen personal items.

Check-in

Campers will check-in at the lobby of the housing hall from 1:00 to 2:30 pm on Sunday July 25, 2021.  A BME faculty member and camp counselors will be present.  Detailed directions will be provided by direct communication with campers prior to the camp.

Welcome Picnic

A welcome picnic is from 3-5 pm on Sunday July 25, 2021 in the STEM Building Forum.  Campers and their parents are invited to attend. The STEM Building is a short walk from the housing facility.  If you do not want to walk to the STEM Forum, you can move your car to lot 17 behind the Education Building, which is closer to the venue.
