ABOUT

Registration for Fish Camp 2018 will open May 21st, 2018! Stay tuned for more updates.

Fish Camp welcomes the Freshman class to Texas A&M each year by giving them the opportunity to have fun, make friends, and learn more about Texas A&M. We hope that through Fish Camp, you will begin finding your place in the Aggie Family before classes even begin!

Fish Camp is a 4-day extended orientation program that takes place at Lakeview Methodist Conference Center in Palestine, Texas. Students ride buses from the Texas A&M campus to Lakeview, where they stay in air-conditioned, furnished cabins.

Fish Camp is led by A&M students who are passionate about making the first year of college a success for freshmen! Every counselor has valuable personal experience, so they can offer advice about classes, College Station, and anything else you need as you begin your journey as an Aggie!

What do you do at Fish Camp?

Freshmen are split into large “camp” groups of approximately 120 students and 24 upperclassmen counselors. Your camp will share a special bond as you spend time getting to know one another, attending programs that highlight the opportunities and services available on campus and participating in Aggie Traditions such as Yell Practice, Aggie Muster, and Silver Taps.

Each night, you can go to a themed mixer if you like to dance, or to the Aquarium, where you can play video and board games, watch movies, play pool, and socialize with upperclassmen and other freshmen. Both options are a great opportunity to get to know your new Aggie friends!
