11-Nov-2021  Discovery Camp: Information Session for Potential Host Institutions/Countries

Beginning in 2022, UMAP is expanding the Discovery Camp model and will offer at least two Discovery Camp cycles per year: Summer and Winter.  Applicants interested in hosting a Discovery camp can choose between offering a virtual or a physical camp.  UMAP hopes to be able to select at least one physical and one virtual camp each year. Ideally one physical camp will be offered in each of UMAP’s geographic regions (Asia and the Americas), plus one virtual program.  Programs must include content related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Interested in applying to host a Discovery Camp?  The hosting application is now open, with a deadline of December 1, 2021 for programs taking place in Summer 2022.  Please use this link to access the application. Applications to host Discovery Camps will be reviewed by UMAP’s Sustainable Development Goals Taskforce.  Please note that this is a competitive process and it may not be possible to select all applicants.
