Weather Camp 2012 is Coming!!
The City University of New York weather camp is a two week program for high school students from the New York City metropolitan area. The Summer 2012, weather camp will run from July 23- Aug 3, and is offered free of charge.
The first week is a day camp on the campus of the City College of New York. Concepts of meteorology are demonstrated by hands-on activities whenever possible, and applied to weather observations both locally and around the country. Experts on such topics as severe storms and climate will speak and answer questions.
During the second week the camp moves to Long Island for field work with the New York National Weather Service (NWS) forecast office located on the campus of Brookhaven National Laboratory. We will camp within walking distance of a beach on the north shore of Long Island, and each morning will go to the (NWS) for in depth study of weather phenomena, with the afternoons devoted to field observations of the sea breeze effect, the urban heat island, the surface environment and clouds.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for any High School student considering a career in meteorology or relate field.
