Family & Guest Program

Parent Counselor talking with four mothers at lunch

Family and guests are invited to participate in Parent and Family orientation at their student’s CWE session. This information-laden program runs concurrently to student orientation during both the on-campus and virtual sessions. Families and guests will have the opportunity to learn more about Auburn and the services available to their students through panel discussions, information sessions, and conversations with faculty and staff. While there are activities during the CWE session when students and families will join together, the majority of Camp War Eagle will be spent with families and students in separate programs.  

The cost of the on-campus family program is $75 per guest. All fees will be charged to the student's account and are non-refundable. No additional payment is required at this time. There is no fee for a guest to participate in virtual CWE.
