2019 SUMMER CAMP FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Click on the plus sign next to the questions below to see the answer.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN’T PICK UP MY CHILD ON TIME AT THE END OF THE CAMP DAY?

Please call us to inform us of your late arrival as soon as possible. While we do understand that “life happens” it is important that every child is picked up promptly at 3:00 p.m. each day, unless you have arranged for your child to attend latchkey.

Any child not picked up by 4:05 pm will be charged $1 per minute following. No child should be dropped off before 7:55am as the building will not have supervision available until latch key starts at 8am.

In the instance that late pick up is repetitive, your child may be dis-enrolled from the program (without refund) due to non-compliance.

HOW DO I ENROLL MY CHILD IN LATCHKEY AND WHAT IS THE COST?

Your child will be enrolled in latchkey if you indicate latchkey as a choice on the enrollment application. Please indicate what latchkey times you are interested in. Latchkey is $2.50 per day per time slot (8:00-9:00 am and 3:00- 4:00 pm). Payment is due for latchkey at the end of each week by cash.

HOW CAN SOMEONE BECOME A YUNION VOLUNTEER?

We are always excited when someone is prompted to help us, help youth and young adults! If you are interested in having your name added to our list for possible future efforts, please contact us.

WHAT IS THE 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.

WHAT IS THE SCHOLARSHIP BEING OFFERED AND HOW CAN MY CHILD BE ELIGIBLE?

Scholarships are offered for the Keys 2 Life Camp by our generous sponsors to help offset the cost for parents in order to reduce financial barriers that may prevent youth from participating in a quality summer camp experience. There are two scholarships available based upon eligibility, full and partial. Partial scholarship amounts are $400.00, which means out of pocket, the first 75 parents only have to pay $200.00 for the full 4 weeks of camp. Both new and returning students are eligible for a scholarship this year. However, there are only 75 scholarships available (including both full and partial) and they are given on a first come-first serve basis. Registration must be completed in order to secure a scholarship.Click here to apply for a scholarship.

WHAT IS YOUR 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.

WHAT IF I HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS OR WOULD LIKE MORE INFORMATION?

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.”
