Camp Schedule

Here's what we will be up to at UofL's Cards Camp!

 

Camper Arrival Information

Residential Student Arrival

Day 1: Sunday, August 14
You should arrive at your residence hall at your assigned move-in time on Sunday, August 14.  Lunch is on your own that day, so that will be a great opportunity to spend some time with any family or friends that are coming with you before the camp kick-off. 

Head to Strickler Hall for camp check-in between 1:30-2:00 p.m. ET.  If you have a car on campus leave it in your designated parking area.  Family members can park in the North Information Center parking lot by Strickler Hall and the Planetarium after move-in.

Camp staff will be out around campus to help you find your way!

You won't head back to your residence hall until later Sunday night, so dress for a day of activities and moving about campus, and bring anything with you that you need.  We encourage you to wear dress in any Cardinal spirit wear you have on that day!

Day 2: Monday, August 15
On day 2 of camp, C3s will come to all residence hall lobbies for camper round-up to head to the faculty breakfast!  We will be loading buses shortly after breakfast, so you will need to have all of your bags packed and with you for camp at this time.
