2021 Freshman & Sophomore Retreats

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

The Freshman retreat

The Freshman Retreat 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 2021 Freshman Retreat will be Tuesday, August 17 – Wednesday, August 18 at Jameson Camp in Indianapolis, IN. Download the 2021 Freshman Retreat packet for more details.

New in 2021! The Sophomore Retreat

The Class of 2024 missed the opportunity to come together for a retreat in their freshman year, so in 2021, we are introducing the Sophomore Retreat just for this class. The primary purpose of this retreat is for our sophomore class to bond, as this class was split into two cohorts for most of the 2020-21 school year. We will intentionally design full-class activities in addition to small group activities during this retreat.

The 2021 Sophomore Retreat will be Tuesday, August 24 – Wednesday, August 25 at Jameson Camp in Indianapolis, IN. Download the 2021 Sophomore Retreat packet for more details.
