Why go to Camp Carey

Your path at ASU is paved with opportunity. The opportunity to reach heights you never thought possible, to change the world for the better, to discover and become the exact kind of person you want to be. Starting your journey at Camp Carey removes the guesswork from your first year — so you can make informed decisions about your future, seize the opportunities that interest you most, and shape your path forward with confidence. All of that, all from day one, all because we care.

Early access leads to early success.

Camp Carey connects you with knowledge, tools, and people that can help you thrive throughout your time at ASU. Because your success is our priority, and we want you and fellow first-year students to enter college with:

  • A clear picture of the many opportunities available to you here
  • The tools you need to pursue those opportunities early in your college career
  • Aspirational and achievable ways to elevate your education and experience
  • An immediate network of friends and mentors to help you along the way

“I think everyone should attend Camp Carey because it’s a chance to immerse yourself in a new environment, minus the stress. You just go to camp, sit around a fire, play volleyball and basketball, and do activities related to business as well — with people that you’re going to spend the next four years with.”

Rise and thrive, together.

You could find your new best friend, go-to dance move, marshmallow roasting trick, favorite pine tree, and recipe for success at Camp Carey. The more open you are to the possibility of positive outcomes, the more likely you are to produce some of your own — just like the 100,000+ W. P. Carey alumni who are leading the way around the world.
