Camp Policies

REGISTRATION POLICY & PROCEDURE

You will need to reserve your child’s place in the program by completing the online registration form and paying the fee in full or participating in the weekly payment plan option. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. Preference may be given to students who have never participated in the Yunion’s Keys 2 Life or S.W.A.G. (Student’s with Awareness and Goals) programming. However, there will be a limited number of spots reserved for students that have taken part in our programs in the past. Proof of age is also required when registering. Acceptable documentation includes a birth certificate or a current school transcript or class schedule that has the child’s date of birth on it. If you are an on-line registrant, please send proof of age documentation via mail, hand-delivery, or fax at 313-870-9772.

REFUND AND CANCELLATION POLICY

Refunds will be processed up to June 1st. Due to the significantly reduced cost of the camp, please note that once camp begins, we cannot process refunds or deductions if students are absent for any reason. There will be no exceptions to this policy.
 
In addition, parents must attend the mandatory parent orientation and training to receive any granted scholarships. Failure to do so will forfeit your scholarship. However, parents can still enroll their child at the regular $600 cost. Please note there will be no refunds of any payments made towards registration.

I also grant permission for the use of images and the voice of the student and or parent while the student and or parent is involved in program activities, for promotion of The Yunion Inc., whether produced by The Yunion Inc. or commercial media outlets. I agree that my child or myself may take part in data collection methods (surveys, questionnaires, etc.) that will assist the program in determining if my child or myself was satisfied with services and if set expectations and outcomes of the program were met. Further, I understand that Yunion programming is provided at low or no cost through grantor agencies such as the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Wayne County Health, Veterans and Community Wellness, the Administration for Children and Families Family, Youth and Services Bureau, and other private and foundation funding.

SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

For those applicants who are awarded full scholarships, the scholarship is contingent upon enrollment in the Yunion's Wayne County Youth Assistance Program or First Contact Program, a life skills and prevention funding source from the Wayne County Health, Veterans, and Community Wellness Department.

For those applicants who are awarded a full or partial scholarship, the Parental Open House & Training Day is mandatory.

CAMP REVIEWS

“Keys 2 Life has opened up many doors for me. It is why I do what I do
today. The leaders helped me understand what to look for in good music—not the music today based on drugs, alcohol, and sex, but the music that encourages and helps people. It gave me a voice in the world.”

Destiny S.

Student

“I love the Keys 2 Life Staff! Everyone was so nice to me. I have more
confidence to sing and dance now and really learned a lot about myself as a person. I’m not going to do some of the things that I used to that will keep me from reaching my goals.”

Chari T.

Student

“She really has stepped out of her box. Her social skills have really improved. She is much more vocal and confident and has taken her singing talent to a new level.”

Karlita Y.

Parent

“My son absolutely loved attending the Keys 2 Life Camp! I believe that he will always remember the principles that he learned. It was great! I hope that I am able to bring him again next summer.”
