Youth Programs

From Summer Camp to Start Smart, we offer a variety of activities and events for Jr. Active Badgers. Because we believe our choices today become our habits tomorrow, learning and fun go hand in hand in our youth programs. We encourage play from a young age as well as age-appropriate education around movement, sport skills, and activities.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we are currently unable to offer youth programs. We are waiting for direction from campus on which programs we’re able to offer and when. In the meantime, we encourage you to reach out with any questions at youth@recwell.wisc.edu
