Only incoming students who have submitted their tuition deposit will have access to Frog Camp registration.
Those who have can register for Frog Camp starting April 13th at 4:00pm CDT by logging in to their myTCU portal and clicking on the Admission Status & Checklist tile. Students will be prompted to complete several general information forms and then will have the ability to register for a Frog Camp session.
Each camp has a limited number of spots. Once a camp is full, there will be an option for students to be added to a waitlist. We recommend waitlisted students also register for a camp that is available. This is because there is no guarantee spots will become available at the camp a student is waitlisted for. Spots can go quickly, so we recommend that students register as soon as possible.
This summer we are experiencing a very high demand for Frog Camp and recognize many options are full. Please place yourself on a waitlist and as we receive cancellations throughout the summer, we will use our waitlists to ensure as many students go to Frog Camp as possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to add any additional Frog Camps to our schedule.
TCU has recognized the value of this experience, and we are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to attend Frog Camp at no cost for any of our camps located in Texas.
Our Alpine camps, located in Colorado, do have a $550 fee for participants. This fee will be charged to the student’s account after the completion of the camp.
Frog Camp Cancellation & No Show Policy
There is a late cancel or no show fee of $250 for our camps in Texas. Should participants cancel their registration after the cancellation deadline listed below, this fee will be charged to their student account. Similarly, students will receive this charge if they do not show for the camp which they are registered.
Casa Nueva, Cultura, & All Stars: June 1, 2021
Alpine: July 1, 2021
Challenge: July 23, 2021
Adjustments have been made to our program due to COVID-19 to create as safe an experience as possible. The Frog Camp schedule and all activities have been approved by appropriate university task forces and our staff are receiving training related to all updated safety procedures and policies. For your safety and for the safety of all participants, face-coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required at all times during camp – inside of buildings and outside. We will be promoting physical distancing throughout Frog Camp.
More information on our university’s coronavirus response and plan for the fall semester can be found here.
Before coming to Frog Camp, campers are asked to conduct this health assessment to monitor for symptoms of COVID-19.
Daily Health Assessment
Our Texas Camp experiences happen over three days. This includes All-Stars, Casa Nueva, Challenge and Cultura camps.
Check-in for our Texas camps begin at 1:00pm CDT on TCU’s campus. Campers will be returned to TCU on the third day no later than 5:00pm for Casa, Cultura and All-Stars and around 6:00pm for Challenge.
The Alpine camps are 5 day experiences. Campers will check-in at the Colorado Springs airport at 2:00pm MDT. We will return students to the airport around noon on the 5th day. We recommend participants to not book a flight home until after 2:00pm.
Specific check-in locations and instructions will be sent to a participant’s TCU email account in advance of camp.
When scheduling travel, students must plan to attend their registered camp in its entirety. Students are unable to arrive late or leave early from camp, please make travel arrangements accordingly.
If you are attending a Frog Camp and will be participating in an Orientation session the next day, you have the option to remain in accommodations on campus between programs and do not need to provide any extra information. If you are participating in an Orientation session and attending a Frog Camp the next day, the same applies. Unfortunately, TCU cannot provide additional housing accommodations outside of these situations. If you are arriving early or staying late, please make your own accommodation reservations off campus at a local hotel.
These are the dates we will be able to accommodate students on campus in-between your registered Frog Camp and Orientation session:
- June 27 – Casa Nueva A & Orientation 3
- June 29 – Orientation 3 & Cultura A
- July 14 – Casa Nueva B & Orientation 8
- July 18 – Cultura B & Orientation 9
A packing list will be sent to a student’s TCU email account along with other necessary camp information in advance of the experience.
