UNCG Student Affairs is looking for 100 first-year Spartans to join us for the 2019 Spartan BASE Camp!

During BASE Camp students will build community with other new Spartans through a variety of engaging activities that center around Health, Wellness, Leadership, and Spartan Pride. Spartan BASE Camp is also intended to be fun! Whether it’s building relationships with fellow new Spartans or a day on the high ropes course at Piney Lake, there will be plenty of added excitement!
