What is Jack Camp?

Jack Camp welcomes incoming students to SFA each year by giving them an opportunity to meet fellow students, have fun, and learn about life at SFA. It is our hope that through Jack Camp, you will find your place in our Lumberjack Family.

Jack Camp is a three-day extended orientation program that takes place in Trinity, Texas. Students will arrive at Jack Camp to find some of the best camp facilities in the state of Texas, including air conditioned cabins, on-site cafeteria, athletic fields and more. In addition, Jack Camp is led by some of the most successful student leaders at SFA.

Once you arrive at Jack Camp, you will become part of several groups - your cabin, your family group, your tribe and your team. This will allow you to meet as many other Lumberjacks as possible. With these groups, you will enjoy team-building exercises, participate in group discussions, play sports and socialize.

What do you do at Jack Camp?

At camp everyone is split into two tribes with hundreds of other first year students. These tribes will compete throughout the camp in activities such as cheers, tribal games, skits, and more.

Each tribe will also be split into "family groups" of around 10 - 15 students and 2 counselors. Within these groups, students will have an opportunity to share fun experiences with their peers and really get to know other students on a close level.

They will also have opportunities to engage in small group discussions about life at SFA, what to expect as a new student, some fears students might have their first year, as well as many other questions incoming students may have.

In addition, Jack Camp also features evening mixer activities, plenty of free time at the pool, and opportunities for you to just enjoy your surroundings with some of your new friends.
