July 25-27, 2023
The camp is a three-day, two-night freshmen off-campus leadership retreat planned by the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership.
During this retreat, incoming students learn about the wide range of involvement activities and resources that the university offers. Most importantly, incoming students will learn key strategies on how to enhance their leadership skills and successfully transition into the college environment. This three-day retreat will be packed with ice breakers, team-building activities, leadership sessions focusing on UNO traditions, campus resources, leadership styles, diversity, cultural competency, and the college transition, all led by UNO student staff also known as "Krewe Leaders."
Privateer Camp 2023 is currently FULL. If you're interested in attending camp, you can join our waitlist!
