This brand-new event experience designed just for collegiate members was first held in two sessions in the summer of 2022. Camp AOI focuses on making new connections and developing leadership skills that can be used in AOII, on-campus, and beyond. Limited spaces are available, but spots will be reserved for each chapter to send at least one participant. We look forward to hosting this event again!
