What is Argo Camp?

Argo Camp is a supplementary, but optional extended orientation program geared towards our incoming freshman class. We offer a three-day, two-night experience where students will be given the opportunity to establish life-long friendships and build social networks with their peers, currently-enrolled UWF students and professional faculty and staff.

Students who attend Argo Camp will learn what it is like to be a student at the University of West Florida more quickly than students who do not attend. Our student and professional Argo Camp staff members get first time in college (FTIC) students connected to campus by promoting acceptance of diverse cultures and exposing them to experiences that other universities may not provide.  

Argo Camp 2014 has two sessions at our facility in Mariana, Florida, two hours east of Pensacola.

  • Session 1: August 17-19, 2014
  • Session 2: August 20-22, 2014

I remember what a difference an Argo Camp staff member made for me as an incoming freshman. They made me feel more comfortable as I made the transition to college life.

Argo Camp benefits students in many ways like helping them make lasting friendships. It has helped me start off on the right foot in becoming a strong campus leader. It’s also made a huge impact on my social life and academic career and it gave me the confidence to get involved on campus.
