Only incoming students who have submitted their tuition deposit will have access to Frog Camp registration.
Those who have can register for Frog Camp starting April 6th at 4:00pm CDT by logging in to their myTCU portal and clicking on the Admission Status & Checklist tile. Students will be prompted to complete several general information forms and then will have the ability to register for a Frog Camp session.
Each camp has a limited number of spots. Once a camp is full, there will be an option for students to be added to a waitlist. We recommend waitlisted students also register for a camp that is available. This is because there is no guarantee spots will become available at the camp a student is waitlisted for. Spots can go quickly, so we recommend that students register as soon as possible.
This summer we are experiencing a very high demand for Frog Camp and recognize many options are full. Please place yourself on a waitlist and as we receive cancellations throughout the summer, we will use our waitlists to ensure as many students go to Frog Camp as possible. Unfortunately, we are unable to add any additional Frog Camps to our schedule.
TCU has recognized the value of this experience, and we are pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to attend Frog Camp at no cost for any of our camps located in Texas.
Our Alpine camps, located in Colorado, do have a fee of $775 for participants. This fee will be charged to the student’s account after the completion of the camp.
Alaska does have a fee of $4,000 for participants. This fee will be charged to the student’s account after the completion of the camp.
Mystery does have a fee of $2,200 for participants. This fee will be charged to the student’s account after the completion of the camp.

When scheduling travel, students must plan to attend their registered camp in its entirety. Students are unable to arrive late or leave early from camp, please make travel arrangements accordingly.
If you are attending a Frog Camp and will be participating in an Orientation session the next day, you have the option to remain in accommodations on campus between programs and do not need to provide any extra information. If you are participating in an Orientation session and attending a Frog Camp the next day, the same applies. Unfortunately, TCU cannot provide additional housing accommodations outside of these situations. If you are arriving early or staying late, please make your own accommodation reservations off campus at a local hotel.
These are the dates we will be able to accommodate students on campus in-between your registered Frog Camp and Orientation session:
- Orientation 8 (June 16-June 17th) & Frog Camp Casa Nueva A (June 19th-21st)
- Orientation 11 (June 30th-July 1st) & Frog Camp Casa Nueva C (July 2nd-July 4th)
A packing list will be sent to a student’s TCU email account along with other necessary camp information in advance of the experience.
