Every year incoming freshmen are required to attend the Honors Retreat. From 2005 until 2010, the retreat was held at Camp Beckwith, where honors students completed a low ropes course. This year's retreat was held at held at Camp Grace, a privately owned and operated property spanning over 220 acres in Mobile, Alabama. The facilities include: wheelchair accessible pathways, 48 air conditioned log cabins, three air conditioned multi-purpose buildings, a 60’x80’ covered pavilion/dining hall, two bath houses (including one which is handicapped accessible), a fully stocked 18 acre lake and a lighted Odyssey III High Ropes Course. These amenities combine to provide a fun and adventurous feel that one would expect from a traditional summer camp.
At the Honors Retreat, new students get to know each other and older honors students as well.
