About Deacon Camp
Deacon Camp provides first-year students a once-in-a-lifetime view of Wake Forest that many Demon Deacons may never have the opportunity to witness. This program offers an introduction to the compelling story of Mother So Dear through academics, traditions and athletics. Participants will venture to places where few Wake Forest students will go. They’ll meet various coaches and get a behind-the-scenes look at Wake Athletics; see attractions in downtown Winston-Salem; and even head straight onto Truist Field, home of Wake Forest football.
Led by dedicated upperclassmen, incoming students will begin to discover their new home and make their mark at Wake Forest throughout the three-day program. Deacon Camp is designed and facilitated by student leaders from the Wake Forest Traditions Council and Office of Civic & Community Engagement staff with partnership from Wake Forest Athletics, the Wake Forest Birthplace Museum and Alumni Engagement.
Deacon Camp accepts students on a rolling basis, with spots filled first-come, first-served. Specific program details, like the daily schedule, will be available in early August.
