UW-Green Bay Plans for a Summer of Camps at All Campus Locations

Create, Explore and Learn

GREEN BAY—UW-Green Bay will keep young minds engaged this summer with more than 30 in-person and virtual youth programs, designed to inspire creativity, exploration and learning for students going into grades 2 through 12.

“We are excited to finally have kids back on campus this summer,” said Jason Mathwig, director, Education Outreach. “We have a variety of commuter and virtual programs to choose from in the areas of STEM, art, music, along with Camp Lloyd, PRIDE and Summer Scholars.”

Orientation for Camp Lloyd will take place July 1 with camp running July 6-10. Camp Lloyd has been offered at UW-Green Bay every summer for the past 16 years. It is a week-long camp for grieving children to explore their feelings and benefit from the support of their peers, professional grief counselors and trained student interns from UW-Green Bay.

UW-Green Bay’s Pride Center helps run Pride Camps for middle-school (July 26-30) and high-school students (August 2-6). Both camps are offered free to students through the generosity of The LaForce Family Foundation. Students will meet LGBTQ+ peers and allies and work toward expanding their personal awareness of the LGBTQ+ community.

“For in-person programs, protecting students from COVID-19 is of utmost importance to us,” Mathwig said. “We are taking guidance from UW System, which has developed all their policies from the American Camp Association, YMCA and CDC, involving masks, social distancing, daily health assessments and daily cleaning. Also, there might be testing for longer camps.”

Camps are now open for registration and fill up fast. For more information on Camps and Youth Programs http://www.uwgb.edu/camps or contact Jason Mathwig, Director, Education Outreach, mathwigj@uwgb.edu or 920-465-2267.
