July 7-12, 2024 | Applications are open and due April 1st.

Is your room a jungle of plants? Do you count succulents or orchids among your friends? Would you rather be outside in the garden than anywhere else? Perhaps you relish the moments of biting into a farm-fresh peach?

Rising 9th through 12th-grade students are invited to spend a week at NC State University climbing trees, grafting tomatoes, snacking on raspberries, discovering new genes, and so much more. The Horticultural Science Summer Institute (“Hort Camp”) is a residential, hands-on, pre-college program designed to engage youth into the many career opportunities within horticulture. Students will dig into workshops led by faculty, staff and students on topics ranging from breeding better vegetables, propagating ornamental shrubs, lengthening the life of cut flowers, learning sustainable production and design practices and delving into practical tools that enhance our understanding of plant processes. Students will visit unique and innovative North Carolina farms, nurseries, greenhouses and gardens, think about their future careers, make friends and more!

  • The cost for the week is $650 and includes on-campus lodging in the dorms, all meals, field trips, workshop materials, and a t-shirt.
  • Applications are due April 1st and application acceptances will be made by April 15th.
  • There may be some scholarships for underserved youth and participants with financial need, or payment plans can be arranged. Scholarships available for 4-H,Juntos, TRIO, CAC and SATELLITE youth.
