Your adventure begins here. Explore a different side of Temple University with the new OwlVenture Program – an overnight orientation experience at the scenic Ambler Campus and Arboretum. You will build positive connections with other new Owls, develop your capacity to lead, and gain perseverance for your new TU journey through participation in multiple outdoor activities.

The program includes 1-night tent camping post-orientation plus a low ropes challenge course, teambuilding activities, a pool party, evening s’mores around the campfire, and more!

The program cost is $25 and includes all food and transportation to and from Main Campus to Ambler Campus. All camping equipment will be provided. Requires no prior experience – just the desire to have a great time and create lasting friendships with other incoming students!
