UW-Green Bay Youth Camps

Introductory Fashion Design

Students will have the opportunity to learn basic fabric dying, sewing techniques, designing, pattern making and receive additional fashion design resources during this one-week long fast-paced, fun summer class. We will create several projects during the week to include tie dye, tote bag, infinity scarf, eco-friendly altered clothing and "reverse engineer" existing fashion pieces. Students will be encouraged to be inventive and collaborative and are only as limited as their imaginations!

Resident campers check-in on Sunday, June 17th. Commuter campers check-in on Monday, June 18th.

Cancellation Policy

In the event a camper must cancel, the Summer Camps Office should be notified no later than one month before the start date of the camp session in order to receive a refund, less a non-refundable deposit of $100. Requests received after that date will not receive a refund. No refunds will be made for withdrawal due to homesickness, sending a camper home for disciplinary reasons, or after the camp has started.

In the event a camper requests to switch camp sessions, an additional $25 processing fee will be applied.

We reserve the right to cancel any camp due to low enrollment; in such a case, all fees paid will be refunded or the camper can choose to apply fees to a different camp/class in the same year.

Overpayments of less than $10 will not be refunded.
