The Wisconsin Alumni Association and UW-Extension Family Living Programs offers Grandparents University® each summer. This award-winning two-day workshop is a chance for children (recommended ages 7-14) and their grandparents to come together and learn from each other in a dynamic atmosphere at the UW campus.
Dates for summer 2016:
Session I: July 14-15
Session II: July 21-22
Session III: July 28-29
You do not have to be a UW grad to attend.
Participants are given the chance to explore a “major” while participating in hands-on activities led by top UW faculty and staff. It’s a great way to share your love of learning with your grandchild while creating unforgettable memories. Learning experiences, age recommendations and physical activity levels vary by major. Choose a major that best fits your interests and capabilities. You will remain in the same major for the entire two-day program. Adults must accompany children to majors.
Ogg Hall, a university residence hall, serves as the home base for the program, but activities take place in classrooms all over campus. Bus transportation is provided to most program locations. Participants, however, will need to walk short distances to board buses and to reach the dining hall.
The program fee for Grandparents University 2016 is $200 per adult and $145 per child. This includes meals (lunch and dinner on Thursday, breakfast and lunch on Friday), instructional materials, campus transportation, tours, the Badger Picnic, the Chill with Bucky ice cream social, entertainment, a water bottle, a cinch sack, and a T-shirt. Fees for overnight accommodations and parking are in addition to the program fee.
