Kick off your introduction to Wingate University at Camp Bulldog this summer.

Camp Bulldog is an optional extended orientation experience that provides new Bulldogs with amazing opportunities. The program helps incoming students meet other new Bulldogs, develop leadership skills and jump-start their involvement at Wingate University.Camp Bulldog t-shirt

Throughout the weekend, students participate in team-building activities, group initiative activities, leadership training, and learn the history of Wingate University and its traditions.

Students leave Camp Bulldog ready to hit the ground running when they arrive at Wingate University in August. Students who participate can become leaders on our campus their very first day.

Why Camp Bulldog?

Camp Bulldog is open to first-year and transfer students with a passion for leadership who want to become engaged on campus. In addition to learning more about Wingate University and further developing your leadership skills, you can connect with other new students who are looking to become Top Bulldogs.

The Nuts and Bolts

Camp Bulldog is NOT an orientation session; you still attend orientation beginning August 17. Camp Bulldog takes place on Wingate University’s Wingate campus July 21-23.

Wingate University’s staff and exceptional student leaders facilitate Camp Bulldog activities and education sessions, while a trained outdoor program crew supervises group initiatives. Together, these events provide students with an enriching start to the college experience at Wingate University.

Camp Bulldog costs $200, and includes all meals, all activities and a t-shirt.
