Apply to be a Cub Camp Counselor Today!

Counselor Applications are Open Now!

Are you ready to be a part of UH's first tradition?

Cub Camp is a three day extended student orientation program for incoming freshman that occurs the week before classes begin in the fall. For three days and two nights, freshmen and upperclassmen leaders head to an off-campus retreat center and learn more about UH, its traditions, and the UH family.

What is a Camp Counselor? Camp counselors serve as a support system for freshmen and help them transition into college life. Counselors help the freshmen better understand college life, UH traditions, and campus services.

All applications are due by 5:00pm on Wednesday, February 8th.

Want More Information? Information sessions are on February 2 at 2:00pm and February 6 at 5:00pm in the Cub Camp Office, MD Anderson Library Basement. To reach the office, enter through the back doors of MD Anderson Library facing the Student Center, go down the stairs and follow signage for "Cub Camp" leading down to the back of the building. This is a great way to ask questions about the application and interview process, learn more about the role and get to know some of the members of the Leadership Team and current Co-Chairs.

If you have any questions or want more information about the selection process please contact our Director of Leadership at Thanks and Go Coogs!

Counselor Testimonial: Anthony Salcido, Counselor 2016

“Being a counselor for Cub Camp was one of the best experiences of my college career, before camp you go through training sessions that give you great lessons for the job and for life. The best part would definitely have to be the three days of camp. It is 24/7 interacting with incoming freshmen where you teach them all about the University of Houston as well as helping them adjust to college life and building connections. Seeing my campers still hang out with each other to this day is an amazing feeling and knowing you helped build those friendships and helped them succeed!”
