Camp Cocky Leadership Retreat

Next Camp: February 2025 (weekend date will be provided by the start of Fall 2024)

Camp Cocky Leadership Retreat is an opportunity that provides students without a positional leadership role a time to develop interpersonal skills and relationships through team-building programming in an off-campus setting. Camp Cocky will provide students with an adventure-based program designed around rope courses, climbing wall, and a camp-feel. Students will be given resources dedicated to how they can leverage their personal skills and strengths as a leader to create and participate in high-functioning teams.
