Camp Information

  • Extended Learning Opportunities is sponsoring several FREE enrichment camps with community partners for students K4 through grade 12.
  • Camps may be held during non-school days, winter, spring, and/or summer breaks.
  • Most camps are FREE of charge for MPS students and city of Milwaukee residents (MPS students receive priority registration).
  • Some camps require parent drop-off and pick-up as well as a bag lunch.

Registration Reminders

  • Space is limited, and camps are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis for students with completed paperwork. If submitting more than one registration, it may be necessary to limit one camp opportunity per child based on availability. If so, please specify the top priority.
  • MPS students receive priority registration. Non-MPS students will be notified via email if spots become available only if all necessary paperwork is completed.  Priority registration is also given to students who have never participated in an outdoor adventure/enrichment camp through ELO. 
  • In order to reserve a spot, all required paperwork must be completed and submitted to Extended Learning Opportunities by scan to elo@milwaukee.k12.wi.us, the U.S. mail, or brought to MPS Central Services, Extended Learning Opportunities office, room 150.
  • Incomplete or illegible forms cannot be processed.
  • PLEASE NOTE: When completing forms, make sure to select the grade based on the criteria listed.
  • Families will receive an email communication confirming enrollment. Email addresses should be current and legibly written on registration forms.
  • Registration will close either when the camp fills or one week prior to the start date.
  • If it becomes necessary to cancel your child's registration, please contact (414) 475-8238.
