MPS Overnight Camp Program

Milwaukee Public Schools is excited to offer FREE overnight summer camp experiences to MPS students currently enrolled in grades 4-8! This opportunity will allow our young people to discover new interests, expand horizons, and experience the wonderful outdoors.


Eligibility: Students must be in grades 4-8 as of the 2022-23 school year (NOT the grade the student will be entering in the 2023-24 school year). Only students from these MPS schools are eligible to participate. Each MPS student may only participate in one camp session this summer.

Participating camps: Eligible students can attend any of the camps listed below.

Paid expenses: MPS will cover the cost of camp registration, camp-provided transportation to and from camp (if needed), and a camper supply kit for each camper (if needed).

Milwaukee Recreation, a department of MPS, will oversee the overnight camping program. In April, we hosted a pair of Overnight Camp Information Fairs to share more about each camp and the overnight camp experience (click here to see the presentation document from the virtual information fair). For questions about this initiative, please email OvernightCamp [at] (When emailing our staff, please replace the "[at]" with a traditional "@" symbol. Ex:

Update (6/1/23): All of our 2023 summer camps are now full.  Please complete this form to join the MPS Overnight Camp Program mailing list, and you'll be the first to know about future opportunities!
