Cub Camp's mission is to provide a high energy, fun, and educational experience for incoming freshmen that promotes positive relationships and UAFS pride. Designed to ease freshmen into college by engaging them, as opposed to waiting for them to engage college, Cub Camp truly is a Lion’s first tradition. Established in 2004 by Jill McCormick, Cub Camp has evolved and adapted many times throughout the years. Originally campers were shuttled off campus where they would learn about campus traditions, amenities, and get to know each other. At that time Cub Camp took 56 freshmen. It has since peaked at approximately 325 campers in 2015.
