It also includes one year membership to the Student Chapter where they will receive a welcome packet, giveaways, and accesses to the Alumni Tailgate.
Q: Why should you raise funds? A: The additional cost of attending camp on top of tuition, books, housing, etc. means that many potential campers simply cannot afford camp.

Q: Do you have a video or something about Camp? A: Yes
Q: When did Camp Start? A: Back in 1993, then-UT students Sean Petrie, BS ’93, and Allison Weinstock, BA ’93, were inspired by A&M’s Fish Camp to create the ultimate welcome for UT students. They wanted to build a program that was part-informational, part-social, and part-leadership training.
Q: How big is Camp Texas? A: Camp Texas has grown from one session to 6 with around 1,200 students attending last year.
Q: Does attending CT have any effect on becoming a Texas Ex? A: Yes, about 40% of students who attend CT become life members which is one of the highest percentages of organizations to become Exes. This out-of-the-gate exposure to the Texas Exes gives students a  connection to their future almamater before classes start.
