Camp Blue FAQ

2021 Camp Blue plans will be forthcoming. In the meantime, please visit the COVID-19 Information page for the most up-to-date information regarding fall opening.

Camp Blue is a high-energy and action packed leadership camp exclusively for University of Dayton's first-year students. The focus of the camp is on leadership development and  is designed for students who want to get a jump start on their leadership potential. Whether it’s high or low ropes, learning how to be a “colorful” leader, team time with upperclassmen counselors, discovering something new and exciting about Dayton, or simply learning what it means to be a UD Flyer, there is something for everyone at Camp Blue.

All first-year students can participate in Camp Blue, this includes both residential and commuter students.

Students can attend Camp Blue as well as MECPrO and/or Honors Welcome.

If you are Pell Grant eligible, discounted Camp fees may be available. Please be aware that financial assistance has time sensitive deadlines. More details will be available soon!

Camp Blue move-in begins promptly at 8 a.m. on Sunday, August 15.  Campers should pack their camp overnight bag separate from their residence hall move-in belongings (there will not be enough time to pack for camp after moving in).

Please Note:  Commuter students participating in camp should report to KU Ballroom at 12:30 p.m. 

The Camp fee includes 11 meals (meals may vary).  Students have the option of purchasing a supplemental meal plan in order to cover additional meals during the portion of camp that is on campus.  Supplemental meals plans must be added and paid for at the time of registration.

Meal Plan A: $30 is equivalent of one extra meal a day

Meal Plan B: $60 is equivalent of two extra meals a day

***Please Note the following about the Supplemental Camp Meal Plans:

  • All meals at UD Dining Facilities are a la carte pricing so the plans above are calculated based on the average cost on 1 or 2 extra meals 
  • Can only be used at the UD Dining Facilities that are open during the assigned meal time blocks 
  • Any unused portion of either meal plan rolls over to fall semester for use until $0 balance
