Eagle Camp

New School, New Friends & New Experiences

Eagle Camp is an optional next step that welcomes the entering students to UNT each year with the purpose of giving them an opportunity to have fun, make friends, and learn more about life at UNT. We hope that through Eagle Camp, you will begin finding your place in the UNT Family before classes even begin!

Eagle Camp is a 3-day optional experience and tradition for incoming students that takes place at Sky Ranch in Van, Texas. Students ride buses from the UNT campus to Sky Ranch, where they stay in air-conditioned, furnished cabins.

Eagle Camp is led by UNT students, faculty and staff who are passionate about making the first year of college a success for the incoming students! Every leader has valuable personal experience, so they can offer advice about classes, fun things to do in Denton, and anything else you need as you begin your journey as an Eagle!

Eagle Camp is NOT Freshman Orientation.
