Apply to send your child to kids camp

Each year, the PSAC Prairie Region Council sets aside funds to pay for at least one child of a PSAC member to attend the labour-sponsored summer camps throughout the Prairies.

As well as funding one child to the camp, we anticipate that we will be able to cover the cost of a camp councilor, if one is required, to give members the opportunity to volunteer at the camp. Although this line item may not fully fund a camp councilor, it will go a long way to ensure PSAC’s involvement.

Any interested member with a child between the ages of 8 to 15 should submit an application and short essay (approximately 100 words) answering the question, “What can a union do for me?” Please include your Component/DCL, Local, and contact information (phone and email). Following the camp, the selected participants will be required to submit a report of activities to the Prairie Region Council.

The deadline to submit applications is Monday, June 12, 2017 at noon (MDT). Applicants will be notified if their child has been selected for the subsidy, or they have been selected as a councilor. Submit applications to Alison Davis by email:, fax: (204) 943-0652, or by mail: Suite 460-175 Hargrave Street, Winnipeg, MB, R3C 3R8.

Please pass this information along to members in your Local who have or know of children that might be interested in this opportunity.
