Grandparents University is a summer camp that brings grandparents and their grandkids together for three days of fun on the campus of CMU. This experience includes hands-on educational sessions conducted by faculty members along with other fun activities for grandparents and children ages 8 to 12.
Eat and sleep in the residence halls, attend special classes together throughout the campus, and experience many highlights of the CMU campus during Grandparents U.
Customize your experience by giving preference to classes that fit your interests and those of the kids that you love.
Class selection preference will be based upon the date that registration is received at the Carlin Alumni House. Hurry-the sooner you register the higher preference you get! Once registered, you will receive an e-mail by May 1st with a list of all classes that are being offered. At that time you will rank your top choices, and be placed in those according to availability.
