Pride Leadership Camp

The UW-Green Bay Pride Leadership Camp offers youth from grades 6-12 opportunities to meet other LGBTQ+ and allies their age. Together they will learn how to enhance leadership skills. The five day leadership training focuses on a new topic each day: personal integrity in leadership; enhancing family relationships; healthy friendships and relationships; community resources; and developing leadership skills and goals. Students will explore what interests and skills they may have for leadership, learn individual and team leadership skills, and begin to learn how individuals lead by being the primary leader, or by supporting a leader and team with positive community purpose. Classes will be lead by two instructors. Classes are Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with scheduled evening activities to encourage socialization and new experiences. The classes will include individual journal and  group work. Guest speakers will provide insights on community resources, individual coping skills, and opportunities for youth to learn how to be positive leaders.

General Information

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 child on time will result in a supervisory charge of $15 per hour. 

Resident 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, swimming at the Kress Events Center, outings to recreational areas in the Green Bay area, etc. 

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. 

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.

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. 

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.

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.
