A "must" for every aspiring Bulldog, this camp gives you a sneak peek at UGA life! For one week, you'll get a taste of what college is like – living in the residence halls, eating in the dining commons, exploring the campus, and meeting important students, staff and faculty members. You'll visit a variety of departments on campus, explore potential career paths and participate in activities to help you develop leadership and life skills. You'll also meet and hear from professionals in Admissions, Campus Life, Career Services, and other university resources. And don't worry – there's plenty of fun to be had on campus during the summer! We'll visit Legion Pool, Tate Student Center, the Creamery, the Ramsey Athletic Center, downtown Athens, and more. This is an amazing way to sample college life, and see what it takes to become a future UGA student! Open to students ages 13-16.
