Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the payment options for CAMP?

A: CAMP aims to be intersectional,  inclusive and accessible. It is for this reason that we provide multiple financial options for program admission. In your application form, please choose the payment option that best allows you to show up in your position. Finances are not a barrier of access for this retreat, and whichever option you choose will hold no bearing over your acceptance. Details provided in the registration package after acceptance.

Q: What if I cannot attend certain days or hours of CAMP?

A: Although we hope to accommodate all participants interested in attending CAMP, we ask that you specify your availability and level of commitment to the program in the application form so that we can award first priority to those available for the entirety of our schedule.

Q: What if I do not want to participate in select CAMP activities?

A: Although we hope for participants to remain present for each activity, they will have the opportunity to leave the conversation whenever they choose. In fact, we will be sure to offer additional resources and services such as SFU Health & Counselling Services to ensure your safety and wellbeing throughout the retreat.

Q: Will there be any assignments or projects I will need to complete for CAMP?

A: CAMP will always be projectless and homeworkless! We ask that you come to each session ready to learn, though we also understand that a reading break shouldn’t be stressful. While participants may be prompted to fill out select documents in preparation for the retreat, there will be no assignments or exams to complete. 

Q: How do you decide who gets accepted into CAMP?

A: CAMP is designed to be an immersive experience that creates connection and builds community. Our team has carefully planned activities so that they connect and build upon each other. For these reasons, priority will be given to applicants who are able to commit to attending the full retreat. Only first and second year students will be accepted.

Q: How do I know if I'm a first or second year student?

A: It's not based on credit hours. It's based on when you joined the SFU community. Most CAMPers will be first and second year students who have not yet completed 60 credits, however, we want to leave room for folks who are transferring in. If you are an undergraduate student who joined the SFU community within the last 2 years, you fit the criteria.
