RAM CAMP is a week-long on-campus leadership experience designed to connect incoming freshmen to VCU traditions, campus resources, and fellow Rams. Campers are divided into small groups and participate in various activities led by a VCU upperclassmen student leader. These leaders, along with university staff and faculty, create opportunities for campers to develop leadership skills, engage in community service, and build their Ram community. If you are selected, you will need to arrive on campus a week before freshmen move-in. Help freshmen get a jump-start successful first year by becoming a Ram Camp Leader!
