Bruin Transfer Camp is UCLA's premier Post Orientation Program for transfer students designed to enhance the New Student Orientation experience. At Bruin Transfer Camp, you will have the opportunity to kick off your next two years at UCLA in a camp setting with fellow new transfer students. Over the course of four days, and through the experience of active, outdoor activities, you will bond with the rest of the Bruin Transfer Camp community, providing a strong set of friendships to begin your time at UCLA. Integrating a series of small and large group activities, initiatives, conversations, and adventures, Bruin Transfer Camp strives to help you build meaningful connections that you will maintain throughout you college experience.
