The 29th Annual SFL Summer Camp, sponsored by the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour, will be held August 27 to September 1, 2017 at Camp Easter Seal, Manitou Lake. See the attached SFL flyer for more information.
The PSAC Prairie Region Council has approved funding to pay for at least one child of a PSAC member. If no requests are received, the money will be sent to the SFL Summer Camp as a donation. Any member interested in submitting the name of a child between the ages of 13 to 16 should submit an application and short essay (approximately 100 words) answering the question, “What can a union do for me?”
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.
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 (CST). 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: firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
