About Hillcamp

Hillcamp is a four-day orientation held before classes begin in August.

Planned and produced by students for students, Hillcamp is designed to help new students prepare for their college experience and give them the tools to be successful during college.

Held on the beautiful Rogers State University Claremore campus, Hillcamp is the best way to start building relationships and get plugged in to your new life as a Hillcat.

While attending Hillcamp, students will meet fellow new Hillcats, current students, faculty and staff in a fun and learning environment.
