What is Hokie Camp?
Hokie Camp welcomes new Hokies to Virginia Tech with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, make friends and learn more about life at Virginia Tech. At camp students will have opportunities for hands on service, Ut Prosim, Virginia Tech's motto. Through Hokie Camp new Hokies will begin finding their place in the Hokie Family before classes even begin!
Hokie Camp is a three-day orientation experience that will take place at the W.E. Skelton 4-H Educational Conference Center. Students will ride buses from the Virginia Tech campus to the Conference Center where they will stay in air-conditioned, furnished cabins
In addition, Hokie Camp Building Groups (BG's) will continue to meet during the fall semester. This allows new Hokies to continue the relationships they made at Hokie Camp and have the opportunity to be mentored by upper class students (Hokie Camp Counselors).
What do you do at Hokie Camp?
New Hokies will be divided into groups of 8-9 led by one current student Hokie Camp Counselor
New Hokies will be split into color groups: Yellow, Red, Blue, Black, and Green. Students are split further into small groups of 8-9 campers (we call them Building Groups, or BGs for short) and lead by one upper class Hokie Camp Counselor. Each camp will share a special bond as new Hokies by spending time getting to know one another, attending programs that highlight the opportunities and services available on campus and participating in Hokie traditions such as Hokies Respect, our motto - Ut Prosim (That I May Serve), and the Class Ring.
