What is Camp Bulldog?

Camp Bulldog is an optional extended Orientation experience that provides new Bulldogs with amazing opportunities.  The program is designed to help students meet other new Bulldogs, develop leadership skills, and jump start their involvement at Wingate University.  Throughout the weekend, students will participate in:

  • team-building activities,
  • rope courses,
  •  leadership training, and
  •  learn the history of Wingate University and its traditions.

Students will leave Camp Bulldog ready to hit the ground running when they arrive on campus in August.  Students who participate will have a unique opportunity to become leaders on our campus their very first day.    

Camp Bulldog is NOT an Orientation session.  It is in addition to attending Orientation beginning August 18.  

Camp Bulldog takes place at Cedar Grove Retreat Center  in Kannapolis, NC.  Students will ride buses from Wingate's campus to Cedar Grove Retreat Center and return to campus midday on Sunday, July 17.  Students will be housed in air-conditioned cabins

Who and why you should attend?

Camp Bulldog is open to first-year and transfer students who have a passion for leadership and being engaged on campus.  Space is limited to 60 participants.

Not only will you learn more about Wingate and further develop your leadership skills, students will also be able to start connecting with other new students who are looking to become Top Bulldogs at Wingate.  Camp Bulldog activities and educational sessions will be facilitated by Wingate’s staff and exceptional student leaders.  The rope courses will be facilitated by trained outdoor program facilitators. Together, these events will provide students an enriching start to the college experience at Wingate University.
