Camp UKnight 2017 will take place August 4 – 6 and August 11 – 13.
These pre-orientation sessions are three day, two night sessions that take place in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania at Stony Acres Adventure Camp. First-year and transfer students are invited to come together to build an instant and sustainable community of friends to help ease the transition into college while learning Rutgers traditions and valuable leadership skills that will allow our students to make an immediate impact on the campus community.
Camp UKnight is designed to help incoming first year and transfer students build an instant and sustainable community of friends to help ease the transition into college life at one of the largest institutions in the country. A large institution like Rutgers can be intimidating, but Camp UKnight helps you to build amazing friendships that will last through your college career and beyond. Also, since Camp UKnight is run by a dedicated group of established Rutgers Student Leaders, you will build a network to jump start your first year on campus!
Camp UKnight also gives you an opportunity to develop your leadership, teamwork, and communication skills before you even arrive on campus as a student. You can build these skills by hiking the natural wonder of Boulder Field, repelling off a 30-foot climbing wall, having fire side chats with established leaders and professionals, and much more! Camp UKnight helps build the foundations for success and gives you an opportunity to develop the confidence to make an immediate impact on campus.
