Leadership Retreat


Purpose: The Leadership Retreat is an annual fall event in which dozens of freshmen are presented with the opportunity to become acclimated to the leadership “climate” of Frostburg State University.  By engaging in activities designed to build upon individual strengths and facilitate group skills, students are given the opportunity to become more cognizant and effective as leaders. This program also serves as a platform for positive mentorship by connecting freshmen with faculty and staff members in addition to seniors in the Presidents Leadership Circle.  

Activities: Students participate in a series of ropes course activities as well as team building activities and group challenges.  Participants are also given ample time to bond with one another and build positive relationships through social time, group meals, board games and even an evening bonfire.

When & Where: The Leadership Retreat is a weekend long excursion to Camp Allegheny in Pennsylvania. Never fear- all participants are housed in cabins with beds, showers, electricity and hot water. This retreat takes place each September.
