Grandparents U is a summer camp that brings generations together for three days of fun and wonders on the campus of Central Michigan University. After careful consideration, we have decided to move our 2020 Grandparents U program to a virtual format. CMU faculty, staff and community members have been working hard alongside our Alumni staff to put together an inclusive activity packet. This packet is yours to keep and complete in your own space and on your own time. 

Example sessions:  

  1. Native American Culture workshop – Native American Programs 
  2.  On the Move – University Recreation 
  3.  Mayor of Mt. Pleasant – Mount Pleasant CVB 
Starting Monday, June 22 
Your space! 

FREE! You must be registered to receive access to the activity packet.  

Reserve your packet by Monday, June 15! Packets will be distributed electronically on June 22, 2020 but can be completed at your own pace.
