The things you learn

Camp Carey is more than just fun in the cool pines of Northern Arizona (and a nice break from the August heat of Phoenix). You’ll also get on the right foot as a business student, learning valuable lessons about networking, communication, and global engagement. And you’ll learn to put teamwork to use with the Camp Carey corporate challenge.


Take the first step toward building a strong W. P. Carey network — even before your first classes start. Camp Carey is a great opportunity to get to know fellow first-year students, W. P. Carey staff, and faculty members.


Learn to talk the talk and walk the walk. Through group activities, you’ll sharpen both verbal and non-verbal communication in order to be more successful.

Global engagement

Students from all over the country and the entire world attend Camp Carey. It’s an ideal way to share your experience with other business students, whether they’re from your hometown or half a world away.

Corporate challenge

A real-world business project, the corporate challenge is your chance to showcase your great ideas. With your teammates, you’ll develop a business plan for a product or event that includes marketing, finance, promotional ideas, social media strategies and more. Additionally, winners from each camp session get to present their ideas to reps from a major corporation (past companies include Pepsi and Coca-Cola).

Countdown to Camp Carey

We can’t wait to meet you! See when we’re going to Camp Carey this summer — there are multiple sessions to choose from before school starts — and where we’re going in northern Arizona.
