What is SUMMIT?

Since 1955, Summit has introduced first-year students to the breadth of Christian life at Wake Forest.

In addition to relationship-building activities like small group discussions, chapel services, hiking, games, and a talent show, first-year students enjoy getting to know upper-class student leaders and Christian campus ministers who hope to provide friendship and guidance throughout the school year. The four-day program begins and ends on campus, and transportation is provided to and from the beautiful grounds of Camp Hanes, a YMCA camp in King, North Carolina.

Students are accepted on a rolling basis with notification of acceptance sent within 10 days of your registration being received. Specific program details will be available in early August.  So sign up, bring your adventurous spirit, and be prepared for a pre-college experience you’ll never forget.


August 15 – 18, 2021

Registration is closed for 2021.


The total cost for the program is $375.00.
