Grandparents’ University ® looks to be record-breaking this year, already with over 100 participants registered to take part in this two-day learning program for grandparents and grandkids. We still have openings in most classes and could fill to capacity at 180. Students enjoy hands-on learning in a perfect summer setting on the UW-Green Bay campus.

Spanish in the Professions, August 8-12, will meet the needs of professionals in the areas of business, education, health care, social work, law enforcement, customer service and leisure. Thirty hours of face to face instruction, breaks and lunch are provided with classes on the UW-Green Bay campus. This program is offered for undergraduate, graduate or for non-credit.  Participants may commute, stay on campus or at local hotels.

Life’s a Lab Reality Science Camp, in partnership with Bellin College is full! You’ll have to check back with us next year!

Art Camps, June 20-24 (middle school day camp) and June 26-July 1 (day/resident camp for grades 8-12) both show encouraging growth over last year’s enrollment to date. Most courses are still open for enrollment, but keep in mind our website will show up-to-date availability as classes fill.  For both camp weeks, a public art show in the UW-Green Bay Lawton Gallery is scheduled on Friday, June 24 and July 1 respectively.

Music Camps, Jazz; Middle Band, Orchestra, Choir; Senior Band, Orchestra and Choir; and The Total Guitarist are ramped up for an exciting summer. We’ve got a great lineup of music staff and a daily schedule that includes class options for students to customize their camp experience. (Check out the staff links on each camp’s website). Of particular note is the new staff coming up from the Chicago area to assist with the Total Guitarist Camp. Check out the camps website for more information.
