Stampede Leadership Camp Mentors are returning students who are passionate about leadership and excited to support incoming CU students as they begin their leadership journey on campus. Mentors will lead a small group of Stampede Leadership Campers through the duration of camp. Each group will engage in community building and leadership development conversations, as well as various activities that will help campers get to know Boulder and CU better. Mentors can have the opportunity to co-lead a group or lead a group solo. Note: This application is for returning students only.

Stampede Leadership Camp is a multi-day, time-intensive experience designed to help incoming students build connections quickly. The camp serves as a fast-track involvement on campus. Students will have opportunities to connect with organizations like the Center for Student Involvement, the University of Colorado Boulder Student Government, and the Volunteer Resource Center. All participants are required to participate in each day's activities. Stampede Campers are led through various activities with the assistance of Stampede Mentors-- returning students who are involved on campus and have lived in the halls previously or currently. 

Registration is now closed.

Note: First-year students interested in applying to be a Stampede Leadership Camp participant should not use this application for entrance into the program. This application is for returning students only.
