Learn about the value of your union with your family in a beautiful setting

The UAW Family Scholarship Program was created to provide an environment where members may bring their families to the Walter and May Reuther UAW Family Education Center in Onaway, Mich., (Black Lake), and help them gain an understanding of the values of the union and what it does to advance the rights of working people. Members, through lively discussion and interactive exercises, also gain an understanding of the value of union membership, and how what happens at the bargaining table not only affects them, but their families and communities as well.

Children learn what their parents learn at an age appropriate level. For children ages 4 through 6 years old, Day Camp provides a playful environment with creative activities that teach the basic functions of the union and child safety. Youths between ages of 7 and 11 enjoy a variety of outdoor activities that include golf, gym, swimming, along with unique arts and craft workshops also used to teach the value of union membership.

Teenagers from 12 to 15 years of age will enjoy a schedule filled with Union Involvement workshops combined with outdoor activities. Teens from 16 to 18 years of age are included in the adult program to help prepare them for entry into the workforce. The adult program is designed to coordinate with the schedules of children’s day camps.

For the first time, active members can now bring their grandchild on the same basis as their children. The dates are July 6-11, July 13-18, which will also be for those who need Spanish translation, and July 20-25.

At the end of the program, we’re sure you, like all others, will leave with a renewed spirit of family both at home, your workplace, and community. The UAW covers the cost of all lodging, food, and programming for the member and their family.
