Frog Camp

What is Frog Camp?

Frog Camp is a once-in-a-lifetime program that introduces incoming students to the TCU community. This extended-orientation program is offered off-campus in different locations. Students walk away from Frog Camp with new friends, faculty/staff resources and upper-division mentors. Participants also get an inside look at what it means to be a Horned Frog, learn TCU traditions, and how to make a difference at TCU. We can’t promise campers sleep a lot while at camp, but we can promise they will have an unforgettable experience.

While not required, we HIGHLY encourage transfer students to attend Frog Camp!  Transfer students may register for any Frog Camp, but we will have Transfer-specific small groups led by Transfer students at Frog Camp Challenge (August 11-13).

Learn more about Frog Camp!

Frogs First

Frogs First is held the weekend before school begins and is filled with fun activities for you to begin to meet new friends and make campus feel like home. We will have programs for all students to attend as well as programming specifically for our new transfer students! More information will be released over the summer.
