Little Yellowjackets Summer Camps

Campus Recreation is excited to offer summer camps for the youth of the UW-Superior and Twin Ports communities. The Little Yellowjackets Summer Camps are safe, educational, and fun programs for children in grades K – 6th. Full camps are 5-day sessions. Each camp is structured like a normal day of school with campers moving around our facility and campus participating in different activities throughout the day.

The camps emphasize sportsmanship, teamwork, communication, and fun! All activities have a noncompetitive nature and camp staff will interact with campers to create an exciting and skill developing atmosphere.

This is a non-sport specific camp and all activities are geared towards beginner and intermediate skill levels.

Follow us on Facebook at UW-Superior Campus Recreation Youth Camps for everything that is happening with the Little Yellowjackets.
