UWGB Eco U: Biodiversity - Insects, Animals, Vegetation and Invasive Species
Campers entering grades 10-12+ will investigate natural and not-so-natural areas on the beautiful UW-Green Bay campus, and in Brown and Door Counties. Explore careers as an ecologist/biologist, botanist, environmental scientist, naturalist, land steward/manager, science teacher, laboratory technician and more. Learn about the differences in plants, insects, and animals living in healthy, natural environments and those that have been disturbed by human activity and invasive species. Led by UW-Green Bay’s expert natural resources faculty, campers will learn through fieldwork, laboratory and classroom experiences. Fun, challenging and eye-opening, campers have the option to attend this camp for one unit of college credit.

The Perfect Camp Location - This 700 acre campus location is a perfect setting for summer camps. Located five miles from the downtown Green Bay area.
Resident Housing Campers - UW-Green Bay's two-person dorm rooms are comfortable, offer a private bathroom per room, and are within a five minute walk to the campus facilities. Campers are assigned a roommate of the same gender and age; we honor one roommate request.
Special evening activities are planned for campers who live on campus. These events may include a talent show, field trips, game night in our newly renovated University Union, swimming at the state of the art Kress Events Center, outings to recreational areas in the Green Bay area, etc. Our campers aren't bored in the evening!
Campers who choose to live on campus will be supervised by a team of overnight camp counselors. This highly trained team undergoes hours of emergency training, simulated role-plays, and are experienced in working with today's youth.
Commuter Campers - Campers who don't live on campus, must provide for their own daily transportation to and from campus each day. Lunch meals are available for an additional fee. Order online when you register!
Scholarships - As many as 50% of our campers attend on scholarships or other assistance. Many community civic organizations, local businesses and area clubs often provide assistance to campers.
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) offers some scholarship assistance for non-athletic camps. Scholarships are given on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to eligibility based on financial need. Application forms are available on our scholarships page.
Health Services and Insurance - The UW-Green Bay Health and Counseling Center is available to campers 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Monday - Friday.
Accident insurance through the University of Wisconsin is provided for all camps. This limited policy covers injuries relating to camp accidents only. It is understood that medical costs in excess of camp insurance will be borne by parents or guardians.
Disciplinary Policies - The camp reserves the right, upon notification of parents, to dismiss any student during any session for improper conduct, language, dress or attitude which, in the judgment of the summer camp administrative and counseling staff, is detrimental to the well-being of other campers or smooth operation of the camp.
