Students may register up for both of our 2019 camp programs, and attend both a session of R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure in July, and R.O.C.K. Camp in August. 

When I click on the registration button it asks me for my username and password, what is this?

This is asking for your University of Arkansas Username and Password. This is the same information that you used to register for New Student Orientation, Academic classes, and to pay your student account. The username should be the letters and number that appear before the ampersat symbol in your student email account. For example: The username for “rockcamp@uark.edu” would be “rockcamp”. Please note: some computers require that you enter your whole email address (e.g. rockcamp@uark.edu) instead of just your username. If you are still having trouble with your username and password, please visit http://its.uark.edu/uark_account.html.

Where will I stay during R.O.C.K. Camp?

R.O.C.K. Camp is held on the University of Arkansas – Fayetteville main campus and in cabins at our off-site camp grounds in Welling, OK.

On the first day of R.O.C.K. Camp, students living on campus will move into their on-campus assigned residence halls and sleep there while camp is on campus. Students will move into their assigned rooms on campus during the day of August 12, but will be off campus that evening and the next in gender specific cabins with bunk beds at our off-site location in Oklahoma. They will spend the rest of camp on campus and will stay in their own rooms for the remainder of camp.

Are students who live off-campus or commute to campus allowed to attend R.O.C.K. Camp?

All incoming first year or transfer students (with less than 30 college credit hours) are eligible to attend the program including off-campus students. Unfortunately, the R.O.C.K. Camp program will not be able to provide on-campus accommodations for the program since students will be moving into their assigned rooms for the year. Students that are residing off campus will have to commute; however lodging will be provided for all students during the overnight stay at Camp Heart O’Hills for Day 1 and 2.

When do I move in if I am living on campus?

Students attending R.O.C.K. Camp will move into their assigned fall residence on the first day of camp (Monday, August 12, 2019). We send University Housing our registration list, and they will open up move-in time options via the University Housing “My Checklist” portal which allows our students to move in on that Monday. We send in our registration list in early August, so be on the look out around the first of the month for this option (we will also email everyone when this opens up).  

 

How do I pay for R.O.C.K. Camp?

The R.O.C.K. Camp $225.00 fee will automatically be charged to your university student fee statement at the end of August. This is the only way to pay for R.O.C.K. Camp, as it is part of the registration process. For more information on how to register for R.O.C.K. Camp, please click on the “Registration” tab on the navigation bar.

How do I change sessions from the regular R.O.C.K. Camp program to R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure?

Session changes between R.O.C.K. Camp and R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure is possible if while registration is still open and there are still open spots in your desired session.

If you need to switch sessions, please first register for your desired R.O.C.K. Camp Session to reserve your spot. Upon completing registration, email rockcamp@uark.edu FROM YOUR UARK EMAIL ACCOUNT to request a session change indicating which session of R.O.C.K. Camp you would like to attend, and which session you would like to be cancelled. Our staff will make the change and email you to confirm it has been made.

If there are open spots, there is no additional processing fee to switch between sessions of the same program (i.e. Adventure from Session 1 to Session 3). The fees associated with switching between programs (ex. Adventure to Traditions camp in August) will depend on the time that the request is made.  You will only be charge the appropriate fee for the camp you switch into ($225 for camp in August, and $449 for and session of Adventure). Students will not be charged the $50.00 processing fee for this change.

Please Note: Switching from Adventure to our August sessions after their registration deadlines are processed as cancelation and are subject to those fees.

Where do I check-in for R.O.C.K. Camp?

When you first arrive on campus, you will check-in to your on campus residence hall according to the information that you have received from University Housing. After completing move in, you will find the R.O.C.K. Camp check-in tables located at the Arkansas Union International Connections Lounge. More specific check-in information and any changes will be sent to you in your confirmation emails as R.O.C.K. Camp approaches.

I have a conflict and won’t be able to participate in R.O.C.K. Camp until later in the week. Can I come to R.O.C.K. Camp late?

Unfortunately, we cannot accept students late, as programming is comprehensive and builds on later activities and due to the fact that we leave campus for Camp Heart O’Hills on Day 1 of camp. For questions or concerns about timing, please contact R.O.C.K. Camp at 479-575-5002 or email rockcamp@uark.edu.

I am planning to participate in Sorority/Fraternity Recruitment. Can I still attend R.O.C.K. Camp?

Both R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure and R.O.C.K. Camp do not have any conflicts with sorority recruitment or fraternity rush!

Those participating in the Sorority Recruitment process will be able to participate fully in all of the camp activities because the first events of recruitment do not start until the evening on Friday, August 16, 2019 and will not be charge the extra $60 early move-in fee on Thursday August 15 (since you will already be moved in on Monday, August 12).
