Privateer Camp

July 29 - July 31

The out-of-town camp is a three-day, two-night, off-campus freshmen leadership retreat collaboratively planned by the Division of Student Affairs and Office of Enrollment Services. It is located at Camp Wesley Pines in Hazlehurst, MS about 2.5 hours from New Orleans. During this retreat, incoming students learn about the wide range of involvement activities and resources that the university offers. Most importantly, incoming students will learn key strategies on how to enhance their leadership skills and successfully transition into the college environment. This three-day retreat will be packed with ice breakers, team-building activities, leadership sessions focusing on UNO traditions, campus resources, leadership styles, diversity, cultural competency, and the college transition, all led by UNO student staff also known as "Krewe Leaders."

Privateer Camp recognizes that all students should have an equal opportunity to participate in these programs and the staff will work with students who may require special accommodations, including those students with concerns about their gender identity. If you require special accommodations and are comfortable sharing that information, please do so on your registration form. If you would like to have your questions answered or concerns addressed before completing the registration form, please contact Christy Heaton at cheaton@uno.edu or Dale O'Neill at dmoneill@uno.edu to ask them about accommodations you may need to attend the program.


Cost: $75
