Hokie Camp is all about making friends, learning about life at Virginia Tech, and working together, and that is what Summer Academy is all about too!
We know that some of you don't like the idea of "camp", but here's the thing, we've heard students say that before, and after they have experienced Hokie Camp they say they had a blast, and that they are super glad they didn't miss out on it.
In fact we feel this three-day experience on Smith Mountain Lake is so valuable, that we have made it a mandatory part of Summer Academy. You should also know that the accomodations are not "camp-like" but rather they are air-conditioned, furnished, comfortable living spaces.
You will have a blast at Hokie Camp!
What students say
“Hokie Camp was my favorite part. I went in with a sour attitude against it, but the whole experience was so enlightening to see all the Hokie spirit come out. It's so motivating to be a Hokie and live Ut Prosim to its fullest potential. I seriously felt like I could save the world after Hokie Camp.”
“My favorite part of Summer Academy was Hokie Camp. I thought it was going to be really stupid and a waste of time at first, but when it was all said and done I had thoroughly enjoyed it.”
