Map of UWEC campus  Adults: if you are able to and enjoy walking,  there is no need to have a car and there are a number of extra activities/restaurants/shopping available within a 15-minute walk from campus. Limited city bus service is also available.

Travel to/from Eau Claire:  Eau Claire, WI is located just off of I-94, 90 miles east of the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota metropolitan area.   Eau Claire, WI is a 5 hour drive north and west from Chicago, IL , and less than 3 hours from Madison, WI.

There are two options for air travel: fly into the Minneapolis/St. International Airport and take the Chippewa Valley Airport Shuttle to Eau Claire and taxi service is available to campus (we may be able to arrange to pick you up from the Eau Claire shuttle drop-off to campus, so let me know your flight schedule!) Or, though more expensive, you can fly directly into the Eau Claire Regional Airport (2 flights daily, all from Chicago O'Hare) and we can pick you up from the Eau Claire airport and drive you to campus housing.

Housing: the dorm housing is either single room or double occupancy  from Sunday June 24th- Fri June 29th  with a cafeteria meal plan.  Linens (sheets and towels) are provided with each room.  Participants who are under 18 will have chaperones for supervised activities around campus and in the dorms.   Participants living in the area may wish to bring sack lunches or purchase meals on campus each day but sleep at home--the option is yours.

Things to do in Eau Claire in the summer:

The average weather in Eau Claire during July is 83F during the days and 60F at night,  although that is just an "average." Please check for weather conditions before packing and bring a raincoat/umbrella in case of a good old Midwestern thunderstorm.
