What is Argo Camp?

Argo Camp is a supplementary transition program designed for the incoming freshman class. We offer a three-day, two-night experience in August 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 have the opportunity to learn more about what it is like to be a student at the University of West Florida. Our student and professional Argo Camp staff members help participants feel connected to campus by promoting acceptance of others with diverse backgrounds, making connections with other incoming and current UWF students, and provide an experience unlike any other at UWF!

"Argo camp was really influential because it made me see different views of different people. It has prepared me for college and it gave me a chance to meet new people amidst the awkwardness when coming to college alone. The statement Argo Camp has "Come as many, leave as one," was really fulfilled for me."

Breanne Ponack, Argo Camp Participant

"For everyone, going to college is a milestone in life. This is an interesting time for young people. It's a transition from being right in the middle of adolescence where you are considered an adult, but don't have too many responsibilities. To hiking your way up to the tippy top of this seemingly never ending mountain of adolescence, where all of a sudden you are supposed to know how to be an adult. This abrupt change is especially true for freshman. Me being a student coming from out of state, I didn't know a single soul. Upon attending orientation, I decided in order to flourish when fall semester rolled around, that I would go to Argo camp. This by far, was the best decision I possibly could've made for myself as an incoming freshman. The people I met here continue to aid me in my college experience and push me to be the best version of myself. I got the inside scoop about the University that I wouldn't have otherwise known without Argo camp. As a result, I am now happily involved on campus and am returning as an Argo camp counselor and Orientation leader this summer. I will encourage students at Orientation to highly consider attending Argo camp with an open mind and heart. The excitement surrounding this is indescribable, as I am hopefully going to be as positively influential as my former counselors. GO ARGOS!"
