*Travel camps subject to change- DO NOT make any accommodations until a confirmation with specific dates is received for that camp.
We have a limited number of need-based Frog Camp fee waivers for travel camps (Buenos Aires, Mystery, Edinburgh & Alpine). Camps held in Texas do not have a fee to attend. You must sign up for a Frog Camp before you request a fee waiver. Please click here to apply for the fee waiver. All camps are subject to the Cancellation and No Show Policy below.
Cancellation Policy & No Show Policy
When making your reservation, please consult with your family and/or guests prior to submitting your online form. Changes and additions to an existing reservation should be done online by modifying your reservation in your myTCU account and must be done at least three business days in advance of the scheduled session. For further assistance, please contact the First Year Experience office at 817.257.7855 or email email@example.com.
Because of the limited space available and the high demand of incoming students who wish to attend Frog Camp, we must enforce a strict cancellation and no show policy. Cancellations must be received by the deadlines listed below. Any cancellations after the deadline, or failure to attend the registered camp, will be subject to a cancellation fee. Cancellations must be received in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org by the dates listed below.

Reservations for Orientation and Frog Camp will open in myTCU in the spring. Reservations take place on a first-come, first-served basis. Once a session is filled, we maintain a waitlist. To be placed on the waitlist, please click on the “signup for waitlist” button for the appropriate session in your myTCU portal. Please note you may only be on one waitlist at a time. If you would like to change the waitlist you are on please return to your myTCU portal and click on “remove from waitlist” beside the appropriate session, proceed to save your choices, then you may return to the registration page to register for another waitlist. Waitlist offers will be emailed to your TCU email account and are valid for 48 hours from the time they are extended. In order to be placed on the waitlist, you must be registered for an alternate session.
Because of the nature of the waitlist we cannot predict which sessions will open spots from the waitlist each summer. If you need to schedule travel arrangements in advance, please do so based on the session you are currently enrolled in.
Please note: We do not accept phone calls for placement on the waitlist.
Unfortunately, TCU is not able to provide housing or activities on campus for students arriving the night prior to Orientation or Frog Camp. Personal arrangements can be made off campus in the event you must travel to Fort Worth ahead of your session. Please use this list to find TCU area hotels. Students attending back-to-back Orientation and Frog Camp sessions are automatically provided on campus housing for the night in between programs.
