Stampede Camp is a free three-day program that supports incoming students with their transition into everyday life into the CU Boulder community. Attendees have the opportunity to meet fellow incoming students and connect with current student leaders through participation in workshops, campus resource presentations, service projects and fun on-campus activities. The stress-free, welcoming environment and small group exchanges prepare participants for their first year as a CU Buff and beyond!

A note from the previous director:
"My name is Hanna Lintukorpi and I was the camp director for 2016. The Stampede Camp team is made up of students, just like you, who are passionate about making a difference on campus and want to make your transition as fun and easy as possible. This camp is now a tradition for the Residence Hall Association and each year provides a fantastic opportunity for anyone that wants to make the most out of not just their first year here but for their entire tenure as a CU Student. I hope you all apply, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask!" Hanna
