MSU FAME Summer Camp

FAME Summer Camp is a rolling residential camp program (3 nights and 4 days in summer semester), held on the campus of Michigan State University for 30 foster youth from across the state.

First held in 2008, the Camp aims to prepare and support foster care youth who are considering attending institutions of higher education by increasing knowledge and understanding about eligibility for financial support, student life, and studying at MSU.

In addition to serving youth who are currently in foster care, the camp also employs current FAME students as camp counselors, providing a leadership and service-learning opportunity. For more information, email Andrea Martineau at
