Wreck Camp Benefit and Costs

 

Benefits

Coming to Wreck Camp gives you the opportunity to meet other new students in a fun, camp environment. During your time at Wreck Camp, you will be in small groups led by two upperclassmen student leaders, color-themed teams, and the overall large camp. While having a great time in the activities, this experience allows you to help make your transition to Tech easier by creating new bonds and friendships with a diverse group of students before ever arriving on campus.
 
Georgia Tech has a rich history of traditions and a great story to tell. Coming to camp ensures that you will learn all about these traditions, including singing the fight songs, pulling pranks with George P. Burdell, and practicing for the Freshmen Cake Race. Through camp, we will teach you more about our school and its wonderful history.
 
Wreck Camp will not only help you to be more prepared coming to Tech next fall, but it will also give you a chance to learn more about yourself through insightful activities and interactions in small groups with our staff. We will also help identify your individual strengths and goals that will help you to succeed in your new college environment. We want you to have the best first year at Georgia Tech you can, and Wreck Camp is a great way to get ahead of the curve!
