Camp Union is a five day “Camp” designed for High School Students to examine the history, purpose, and relevance of Labor Unions and the role they play in the workplace and community. Students will be able to identify the different jobs union members hold, with emphasis on Skilled Trade labor. T
The annual camp takes place over spring break in the month of June and is held at the Milwaukee Area Labor Council and the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County.
The students will hear from diverse panels of elected officials, labor unions, and community groups. Graduation is on Labor Day at the Summerfest grounds on the Miller Lite Stage.
Camp Union is presented by the Coalition of Black Trade Unionist (CBTU) Milwaukee Chapter and the Milwaukee Area Labor Council Community Services division, in collaboration with United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County.
