Building Memories

Clubs and Activities

There is something for everyone at Fork Union Military Academy. Clubs, organizations, and weekend activities are all part of the student life experience. There are over 30 clubs and organizations that provide our students an outlet to enjoy their interests and hobbies, or an opportunity to explore and find a new one.

On weekends cadets can enjoy activities on and off-campus. On-campus, they can work out, play basketball or swim in our indoor pool in the Estes Athletic Center. We have organized dodgeball, volleyball, laser tag, and NERF Wars in the athletic center as well. Other on-campus activities include disc golf, camping, and fishing at Pruitt Lake.

The student Social Center in Vaughn Hall offers a pool, ping-pong, air hockey, and arcade games. The center also has a movie theater, private gaming rooms, a music and chess room, and a concessions area.

Off-campus activities include mixers/dances at girls’ schools, bowling, hiking, skiing, movies, restaurants, and shopping trips.

We host several annual Special Events each year that include a Fall Lawn Party, Lunar New Year Celebration for our international cadets, an International Festival, Eagle Eyrie middle school retreat, Halloween Party, and the Military Ball.
