General Information

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 is included in the Commuter Camper Camp Tuition.

Drop off/Pick up Policy: Parents are advised to drop off and pick up your child promptly. The camp begins at 8:00 a.m., with staff on site at 7:45 a.m.  Pick up is at 4:00 p.m. with staff on site until 4:15. Failure to pick up your camper on time will result in a supervisory charge of $15 per hour.

Scholarships - Many of our campers attend on scholarships or other assistance. 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 camper 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.


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.
