Deacon Camp

First-year students participating in Deacon Camp will get a once-in-a-lifetime view of Wake Forest that many Demon Deacons may never have the opportunity to witness. This three-and-a-half-day introduction to the compelling story of our Mother So Dear takes students from the beloved Old Campus to downtown Winston-Salem, and even straight onto BB&T Field, where many Wake Forest sporting events take place. Participants in Deacon Camp will venture to places where few students will go, including Demon Deacon athletic venues and even the very top of Wait Chapel.

There truly is no better way to begin one’s journey as a Demon Deacon than by developing a passion for the rich traditions of Wake Forest. Deacon Camp is designed and facilitated by student leaders from the Wake Forest Traditions Council and Pro Humanitate Institute staff. Each group of eight new students will have two upperclass students as their leaders. Deacon Camp is open until filled. Acceptance into the program will be communicated by email within 10 days of applications being submitted. Specific program details will be available in early August.
