UW-Whitewater Bowling Camp

To ensure the safety of campers and the community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater has made the difficult decision to cancel all overnight summer camps.  But don’t despair: #WarhawkCamps will go on!  We are hosting a series of online events to keep your campers active.  Check them out here: http://www.uww.edu/ce/camps/2020-summer-clinics.  More camps are being added daily!  Be sure to check back often.  In the meantime, stay safe and please direct your questions to cesevents@uww.edu.


Check back soon for 2021 details!


Our Warhawk Bowling Camp is an overnight or commuter camp geared toward bowlers that already have a good grasp on the sport of bowling and are ready for focused instruction. This camp will focus on in-depth discussions about lane patterns, ball choices, ball drilling, advanced practice techniques as well as mental game preparation. This camp is available to players entering grades 7-12 and graduating Seniors in Fall 2020.

Date: Thursday, July 30 - Saturday, August 1, 2020

Limited to the first 30 registrants.
