Camp Insurance Program

You may be thinking of offering opportunities to high school students and members of the public to engage in various University sponsored activities this summer. These opportunities may present some risk of injury to participants and the absence of appropriate medical insurance coverage for illnesses and injuries arising form these types of activities can impose a significant financial burden on the injured and incur liability for the University.

The Department of EH&S recommends the following:

  1. An assumption of risk form should be signed by each participant.
  2. Conduct initial and periodic facility/equipment inspections during the course of the program
  3. Provide First Aid and CPR training for program staff for activities involving minors.
  4. Assure appropriate staff to minor child ratios based on the degree of risk.
  5. Purchase camp insurance policies for participants (See details below)
