Bear Down Camp is a five-day experience for incoming freshmen or first-year students of the University of Arizona. Camp is held annually the week before fall classes begin. While at camp, incoming students will be led by student counselors to participate in various activities that help students acclimate and transition to a University environment. Students will learn about academic and on-campus resources which include involvement opportunities, educational and health resources, history and traditions, and general information about the University of Arizona. This is where first-year students gain their first college support system, friendships, and network.
