Who do I make the check payable to?

Please make the check payable to UW-Green Bay.


When is the registration form with payment due?

The final payment should be in our office four (4) weeks prior to the start of camp. This includes scholarships (with the exception of those listed above). If a scholarship will not be sent to us until after the camp has finished, we will gladly refund the money to you when we receive the scholarship. If you have an outstanding balance you will receive an e-mail from the camps office with an embedded 'quick payment' link. Use this link to make a payment on your account.


What is a typical, daily schedule?

Daily schedules are listed in each camper information letter. Generally, most camps begin at 8:30 a.m. with ending times between 3:40 p.m. for large music camps to 4:00 p.m. for others.

It is important that parents of commuters drop off and pick up their child at the start and end of the camp day.

Drop off/Pick up Policy: Parents are advised to drop off and pick up your child promptly. The camp day begins at 8:30 a.m., with staff on site at 8:00 a.m.  Pick up is at 4:00 p.m. with staff on site until 4:15 p.m. Failure to pick up your child on time will result in a supervisory charge of $15 per hour. 


What is the refund/cancellation policy?

In the event a camper must cancel, the request for refund must be received by the Summer Camps Office no later than four weeks prior to the start of camp in order to receive a full refund, less a $100 non-refundable deposit. 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.

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.

If you choose to switch camp sessions, there will be an additional charge of $25 per change.

Please note: Overpayments of less than $10 will not be refunded.


May I pay for my camper's music, incidentals, evening activities, etc. prior to the start of camp?

The only fees we will accept prior to the start of camp are those listed on our web pages or in our brochure for any applicable camp tuition or materials/lab fees. Any overpayments will be refunded. Please provide your camper with a small amount of cash to pay for evening activities. We recommend bringing $30-$40.


How soon can I expect a refund?

If you've made an overpayment and you are paying by check or cash, a check will be requested through UW-Green Bay's Controllers Office. This process can take four-six weeks until you receive your check via mail.  If paying by credit card, the refund can be done within 3 business days through our office and will reflect on your next card statement.


What about a roommate if my camper resides on campus during the week?

If a request for a roommate is made on the registration form or online, we make every attempt to honor that request. If more than one person requests the camper as a roommate, we will place the camper with whom he/she requests. We also attempt to put similar requests for roommates in adjacent rooms if three or more people are involved. Only two campers are allowed to a room. If a roommate is not requested, we will place the camper with someone of about the same age/grade.


What about supervision of my camper staying on campus?

Highly trained counselors are on duty from 3:15 p.m. (before instructional classes are excused) until 8:30 a.m. (after instructional classes have begun). Counselors stay on campus overnight in assigned buildings and are responsible for campers. All evening activities are supervised.


What time does my camper need to be at camp to check-in?

The time your camper needs to be here depends upon the camp. After check-in has been completed, an orientation meeting and auditions are scheduled (Auditions are only required for the music camps. Auditions simply place campers into the proper performing groups and do not exclude anyone from the camp).

Note: Please read your camper information letter for more information. Some camps require that commuters and/or residents register on Monday morning.


What if my camper cannot make the Sunday auditions?

If campers cannot be here on Sunday, the general policy is that they will be placed into whatever group has available room. In every case, they should send an e-mail to our office indicating the circumstances. Sometimes audition arrangements can be worked out (i.e., auditioning early on Monday morning or via a video). The camp director coordinates these special arrangements. You may send an e-mail to camps@uwgb.edu, and we will forward it to the appropriate camp director.


Where does my camper stay on campus?

Campers are assigned rooms by gender and age. Residence halls are either all-male or all-female. The residence hall rooms are two-person with a private bathroom. Fans are strongly encouraged since rooms are not air-conditioned. Refrigerators are NOT available in the rooms, although you are welcome to bring a mini fridge if it is no larger than 4 cubic feet. If a health condition requires that medication be chilled, please contact our office at camps@uwgb.edu.  


What is a typical evening schedule?

4:00 p.m. - Mail Call
4:30-6:00 p.m. - Dinner
6:30-9:30 p.m. - Evening Activities
10:00 p.m. - Floor Meeting/Activity Sign-up
10:30 p.m. - Room Check/Lights Out for Middle School campers
11:00 p.m. - Lights Out for High School campers

Evening activities in previous years have included movies, trips to the mall, Bay Beach Amusement Park, bowling, and swimming. Campers will usually have a few options to pick from, with costs ranging from free to $8 per night.


What about my commuter camper?

Commuters must provide their own daily transportation and must be in class at the appointed start time. If he/she drives his/her own car, we must have the vehicle license plate on file, or the camper will be issued a ticket. Commuters eat lunch with the resident housing students, and their meals are provided. They may NOT leave campus for lunch or for any part of the camp day.

Note: If the commuter camper leaves campus during any part of the camp session (including lunch) he/she may be dismissed for the remainder of the camp without a refund.

Drop-off and pick-up policy: The camp starting and ending times are stated in the brochure and information letters. Camp staff are not on duty outside of normal camp operational hours. It is up to the parent to be sure the camper is picked up on time. For campers who are here beyond 4:15 p.m. parents will be assessed $15 per hour for supervision.


How many classes does my camper choose for Summer Art Camp for the week?

A high school camper will only be placed in ONE (1) class during the week for Summer Art Camp.  Middle school campers will be placed in TWO (2) classes; one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Because enrollments are limited, it is strongly encouraged that the camper marks their top four choices by placing a 1, 2, 3 or 4 on the line next to the class on the registration form if registering through the mail.  Available classes will be listed on the online registration form.  


Does my child need a physical to attend camp?

No, a physical is not required. However, all campers are required to bring a completed and signed health form to camp on the first day. Do not send the camper's medical form ahead of time.

Note: Athletic camps may be different. View their website for more information.
