We are proud to sponsor four events before classes begin each fall semster. You can only register for one as they overlap in time.

H-Camp
H-Camp is our traditional camp at an off-site location filled with camp games, friendships, and connections.

H-Day
H-Day is a one-day excursion to one of Florida's beautiful natural springs filled with fun memories and good memories.

Honors Potions (HP) Camp
HP-Camp is an experience unlike any other on campus. Instead of camp games, it will feature potion-making and Harry Potter-inspired fun.

One Credit to Rule them All (OCRA)
OCRA is a camp devoted to fantasy worlds. Learn about castles, culture, siege engines and more in this Lord of the Rings-inspired experience!

FAQs

Can I register for multiple retreats?

Unfortunately, no. The calendars for H-Camp, H-Day, HP Camp and OCRA overlap.

Can I register for either retreat if I will be in Gainesville for Marching Band or Sorority Rush?

Unfortunately, no. Band and rush are huge time commitments, and they overlap with the retreat schedules.

When can I move in if I am attending either retreat?

Campers participating in either H-Camp, HP-Camp or OCRA can move into Hume early. Housing and Honors will be in touch with more information about early move-in for retreat participants.

Do SHO members receive a discount?

Yes! SHO members pay a discounted price at registration for H-Camp, H-Day, HP-Camp, and OCRA. You should have received this information via email, but please follow up with Dr. Forbes (H-Camp, H-Day, and OCRA) or Dr. Law (HP-Camp) if you’ve misplaced your SHO membership discount information.

Can I get the registration fee waived for either camp if I demonstrate financial hardship?

Because of the cost it takes to put on H-Camp and H-Day, we cannot waive fees completely. However, some campers may be eligible to receive a discounted registration price due to financial hardship, and they should contact Dr. Forbes if they believe this to be the case. HP and OCRA-Campers will not have their fee discounted beyond the discount that SHO members enjoy.

Is there a waitlist?

There is a waitlist for all four retreat experiences. Students on the waitlist will be notified if a spot becomes available. 

How will I get to camp?

HP-Camp and OCRA Honors Camp take place on the University of Florida campus, so transportation will include walking and campus buses. H-Camp and H-Day take place off-campus, and the cost of registration includes campers’ motorcoach transportation fees.

How do I register for the course credit I earn for doing HP-Camp or OCRA?

Don’t worry about it – the Honors office will register all HP-Camp and OCRA goers for the Fall course credit when registration ends.
