2016 Freshman Retreat

Students at University High School come from many different cities, neighborhoods, and schools. In order to give all of our incoming freshmen a shared first experience as Trailblazers, and to give them a chance to meet their peers before classes begin, we started a new tradition in 2014 — the Freshman Retreat.

The Freshman Retreat is held at Jameson Camp and involves a good mix of team-building activities and upperclassman-led discussions. At the end of the two-day retreat, freshmen will have made new friends, gotten to know people from other middle schools, and begun to build a cohesive class of Trailblazers.

The 2016 Freshman Retreat will be Tuesday, August 16 – Wednesday, August 17 at Jameson Camp in Indianapolis, IN. Download the Freshman Retreat Information Guide to learn more about the retreat and access the release and medical forms. Both forms are due to University High School by Monday, August 15.
