Character Camp is a one-day camp experience for students in K4 through Grade 6 and is an integral part of the Learning for Life character and career education program. The camp is designed to provide age-specific outdoor education and real-life character development experiences to students in Milwaukee County.

Activities at Character Camp are designed to reinforce the Learning for Life character values students have learned in the classroom throughout the school year. Through team-building exercises, students have the opportunity to put into practice Respect, Responsibility, Honesty/Trust, Courage, Perseverance, Caring/Fairness, Citizenship, Life Skills and Self-Discipline.

Character Camp is a pivotal opportunity for these students, many of whom have never experienced a day at camp. Community support is vital to ensure all young people can benefit from participation in Character Camp.
