Have an idea for a great youth program? Blugold Precollege & Youth Programs is here to support UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff as they share their passion with the next generation.
We'll help you navigate state, UW System, local and campus regulations and policies to ensure your program at UW-Eau Claire is safe and compliant. This includes compliance with state statutes regarding reporting, criminal background checks, adult-to-youth ratios, insurance, and lost camper and severe weather procedures.
Our program registration software will make it easy to collect all the information you need, including youth details, parent/guardian info, authorized pick-up/drop-off individuals, health histories and special needs, waivers, and more. We can even include program-specific questions so you can better know your youth before they arrive on campus. It's all part of our effort to make hosting a program easy!
UW-Eau Claire has some of the best summer housing options in the state. Karlgaard Towers was newly renovated in 2018-19 and is the home of our overnight youth attendees. Features include air-conditioning, new guest rooms, community and gender-neutral bathrooms, lounges, a large community kitchen and a spacious lobby. Our summer housing is sure to give your program a comfortable and competitive advantage.
We'll work with you to determine your needs, secure rooms, explain policies and procedures, and supply room and meal access cards.
We know campus - inside and out. We'll connect you with the facilities you need to make your program a smashing success, including classrooms, meeting spaces, recreation facilities, ropes courses, outdoor spaces and more.
We'll work with you to promote your program through the Blugold Precollege & Youth Programs brand and assets. UW-Eau Claire's Blugold Precollege & Youth Programs website allows parents and guardians from across the community and region to more easily discover all of the university's great camp and clinic opportunities. We work year-round to promote our programs through our Facebook page, local and regional advertising, direct mailings, and posters. We'll also work with UW-Eau Claire Marketing team to create any program-specific postcards and advertising you would like.
The camps offered at UWEC are awesome! Our daughter has attended them for six years. She has gained so much experience and confidence. She had also met people and learned a great deal about the responsibilities that come with independence. I highly recommend.
