Camp Oh-Wooo is a four-day experience that immerses incoming Bishops in everything OWU!
During the camp, you will build friendships with other new students, connect with great student leaders, and get to know supportive faculty and staff.
While each of the three camps offers a unique experience, all of them will focus on learning the traditions of OWU, building new friendships, reflecting on the transition into college, and building the skills and relationships necessary to thrive at OWU.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM CAMP Oh-Wooo?
Fun! New friends! Adventure! Great conversations! And a deep connection to OWU!
OWU offers three different types of camp experiences – Challenge Camp, Service Camp, and Wilderness Camp. There’s something for everyone! Individual camp descriptions are below.
At each camp, you will be part of a small group of 6-8 new students led by two OWU student leaders who are excited to share their experiences with you. Small groups also include a faculty or staff member, and the activities you do with your group will be the foundation of your camp experience. You’ll get to know your fellow Bishops, explore who you are, talk about the college experience, and learn what it means to be part of the OWU family.
Looking for an outdoor adventure? Look no further than Wilderness Camp! Set in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, this experience offers outdoor adventures like rock climbing, canoeing, hiking, and tent camping in a rugged setting.
