How do I sign up for R.O.C.K. Camp?

Registration will open May 1, 2018. R.O.C.K. Camp will be limited to 350 students per session. Click on the registration link in the navigation bar. Registration for all of are camps are through HogSync which is used for all on campus events and leadership opportunities. You will need to have your student username and password and your student ID number.

What if I am not the R.O.C.K. Camp type?

There is no R.O.C.K. Camp type!

All different types of students participate in this program. R.O.C.K. Camp is all about welcoming students to the University of Arkansas. Students and mentors that attend R.O.C.K. Camp are from all different places with a variety of interests and experiences, all of whom want to help you learn what it means to be a True Razorback!

Can I participate in multiple R.O.C.K. Camp programs?

Yes! In fact, we have many students who do so!

Students may register up for any combination of our 2018 camp programs, with the only limit being that they can only choose one session of each of the three programs (i.e. they cannot sign up for session one and two of either Adventure or Traditional 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.

How much does R.O.C.K. Camp cost and what does this cost cover?

The registration fee for R.O.C.K. Camp is $225 and covers all program cost and materials, a t-shirt, lodging, meals off campus (and on campus if they do not have a university meal plan), and transportation to the overnight camp in Welling, OK, and our community service projects around the Fayetteville community.

To cancel your registration please email rockcamp@uark.edu FROM YOUR UARK EMAIL ACCOUNT requesting a cancellation of your registration by the aforementioned deadline. Our staff will make the change and email you to confirm it has been made. Cancellations may be made after the deadline, but you will still be charged the full R.O.C.K. Camp fee ($225) to accommodate for expenses already paid and accrued for holding your spot in R.O.C.K. Camp. You may switch to another session (i.e. R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure Session 1, R.O.C.K. Camp Session 2, R.O.C.K. Camp Session 1, or R.O.C.K. Camp Session 2) if space is still available*.

*Should you change sessions you will be charged the fee of the program for which you registered.

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 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. During the overnight stays (on the evenings of Day 1 and Day 2), students will be at Camp Heart O’Hills in Welling, OK, in gender specific cabins with bunk beds.

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. 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 each session. Move in times are arranged between the student and University Housing via “My Checklist”. For more questions about student housing, please visit http://housing.uark.edu/.

If your student has a move in time that is after the start date of their session (i.e. Session 1), then R.O.C.K. Camp will notify University Housing to change that move-in time so that they move in the morning of Day 1 of camp. For Session 1 in August, R.O.C.K. Camp staff will assist with move in from 8am to noon (August 7).

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. 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 my R.O.C.K. Camp Session?

Session changes between Session 1 & Session 2 may be made at any time while registration is still open and there are still open spots in your desired R.O.C.K. Camp 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 (Session 1 to Session 2). The fees associated with switching between programs (ex. Adventure to Traditions camp in August) will depend on the time that the request is made. Switching from Adventure or Expedition to our August sessions after their registration deadlines are processed as cancelation and are subject to those fees.

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

The process is the same as a session change; however, please note the increase in camp price for R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure ($449.00) and R.O.C.K. Camp Expedition ($699.00). If you switch from R.O.C.K. Camp in August to one of these sessions, you will be charged the appropriate price for your program.

Register for the camp which you would like to switch (to ensure that there are open spots still available). Then email us at rockcamp@uark.edu to cancel your current registration. Students will not be charged the $50.00 processing fee for this change.

Please Note: Switching between camp programs will still be subject to the cancelation policies outlined for each camp. Switching from Adventure or Expedition to our August sessions after their registration deadlines will be 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 Recruitment or Fraternity Rush; can I still attend R.O.C.K. Camp?

If you are planning to attend sorority recruitment in the fall, you need to plan to attend Session One of R.O.C.K. Camp. There is no conflict between fraternity rush and R.O.C.K. Camp. Both R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure and R.O.C.K. Camp Expedition do not have any conflicts with sorority recruitment or fraternity rush.

I am in the Razorback Marching Band or the Spirit Squads; can I also attend R.O.C.K. Camp?

Unfortunately, the schedules of R.O.C.K. Camp Session One and Session Two in August conflict with the Razorback Marching Band and Spirit Squads. However, students are able to participate fully in R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure and/or R.O.C.K. Camp Expedition.

I want to participate in Lead Hogs; can I also attend R.O.C.K. Camp?

Yes, students that are chosen to be Lead Hogs may attend R.O.C.K. Camp Session One. You will move in early, attend R.O.C.K. Camp, and then begin any Lead Hog responsibilities on the following day. Also, there is no conflict with R.O.C.K. Camp Adventure or R.O.C.K. Camp Expedition.

I might need special accommodations related to my ability or disability at R.O.C.K. Camp. What do I need to do?

There is a place for you to explain what special needs you may have within the registration process. R.O.C.K. Camp activities are designed and can be adjusted for students with all kinds of ability and skill levels. If you would like further information, please contact R.O.C.K. Camp at rockcamp@uark.edu or call (479) 575-5002.

I have special dietary needs; will I be able to have these needs met at camp?

The dining halls on campus and Camp Heart O’Hills are equipped to handle all different dietary needs and requirements. It is very important that you inform us of these needs prior to camp so that we can be prepared. There is a place for you to inform R.O.C.K. Camp of your dietary needs in the registration process*.

*Please note that we submit our meal request in advance to Camp Heart O’Hills, so we can only meet special dietary requests that are made during registering for camp. If your dietary needs change between registration and Day 1 of camp please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make the appropriate order adjustments. 

When attending R.O.C.K. Camp, where can I park?

If you are registered for a parking permit, you should receive it prior to attending camp and can park in your designated parking spots on campus. If you are not planning to purchase a parking permit for the school year, then please visit http://parking.uark.edu/. For questions or concerns related to parking on campus during move-in, please contact University Housing at http://housing.uark.edu/.

What should I do with my medication when we are at R.O.C.K. Camp?

If you have medication that you need to have stored specially, you should be able to store it in your residence hall room the same way that you will when you are living on campus. Medicine can be stored in the Infirmary while at Camp Heart O’Hills on the overnight trip, where we will have a registered nurse on site. We ask that you please make us aware of ALL medications in the registration process, as well as at check-in, so that we may assist you in the event of an emergency.

Is there cell phone service at R.O.C.K. Camp?

There is cell phone service at the portions of R.O.C.K. Camp that take place on the University of Arkansas campus. For the two night stay at Camp Heart-O-Hills there is limited cell phone service.
