Camp Oh-Wooo

Why should I attend Camp Oh-Wooo?

Camp Oh-Wooo is the best way to begin your OWU experience! You’ll make new friends before classes start, connect with student leaders, and get to know faculty and staff who can be a support system for you throughout your college career. 

Oh, and it’s really fun! You’ll laugh and play games, and have great conversations about college life. This is the place to get answers to questions you may have about starting college. Did we mention it’s fun?

You’ve attended Orientation and started building a solid foundation for your academic experience, so Camp Oh-Wooo is the next step in becoming a Bishop! Camp is where you’ll learn the traditions of OWU, have honest conversations about college life, and start off a step ahead.

 An added bonus is that you get to move into your residence hall a little early!

What will we do at camp?

While each camp has a different focus and schedule, all campers will share some similar experiences. All camps will have small groups of 8-10 first-year students, led by two student leaders and a faculty or staff member. You’ll participate in large group games and meet new friends. You’ll learn all about OWU’s rich history and campus traditions. Your small groups will talk about college issues and answer questions you may have.
