What to Expect

Color Groups

Red Raider Campers are divided into five color groups (blue, green, orange, purple and yellow) and will be led by a color group counselor.

During camp, each color group will spend time getting to know each other though Camp Times and Small Group Activities and will compete against the other color groups in spirit competitions, kick-ball and volleyball tournaments and more! If you have any gear (hats, shoes, shorts, etc.) to show off your color group spirit, be sure to bring it with you to camp.

One week prior to your scheduled Red Raider Camp session, you will receive a reminder email with final important information to help you prepare for camp, including your color group assignment.

These color groups help provide opportunities to make friends and build a support network with the small group and Red Raider Camp Counselors. Though the color teams are an important part of Red Raider Camp, there is still plenty of opportunity to meet others outside your color group through large group activities, meals, and free time!



At Red Raider Camp you will experience a variety of activities. Each is specifically designed to get you ready for an exciting first year at Texas Tech.
