INSURANCE 

System-wide Camp Program Insurance is required through the UT System Office of Risk Management.  The Camp Program provides Excess Accident and General Liability coverage to participants and staff of enrolled, UT-owned and operated camps held throughout the year. Information and applications for summer is typically available by mid/late April.

CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECKS and UTS CHILD PROTECTION TRAINING

UTA has specific requirements for hiring and training camp employees, volunteers and interns.  Refer to the Summer Camp Guide located above for the specific details and requirements.

Within five (5) business days of submission of a Form 26-1, an approval email will be sent to each individual requiring a background check. This approval email will be sent to the email listed on the Form 26-1 and requires further action of the individual to begin processing a background check.

An email will also be sent to the program director listed on the Form 26-1 to inform which individuals are required to complete the UTS Child Protection Training.

All Camp/Conference employees, volunteers and interns must have a current Criminal Background Check on file and successfully completed the UTS Child Protection Training before the start date of your program. If both are not completed, the individual will not be cleared to be on UTA's campus.

PARTICIPANT FORMS

Participants in UTA sponsored camps are required to complete the following forms and submit to their specific camp director.  

All forms are PDFs and will require the latest form of Adobe Reader.  Please also make sure your browser is up to date, Firefox and Chrome are typically the best for downloading forms.  Forms may display with a "Please Wait . .

HEALTH SERVICES

UTA Health Services is available to all programs hosted by a University department or division during normal business hours. Starting summer of 2019, there will no longer be a required Health Services fee per participant, rather the option to take a participant as needed.

UTA Health Services is not able to file claims with individual insurance providers. If Health Services is used for the treatment of youth program participants, the department sponsoring the youth program will be responsible for any charges incurred and the department would need to seek reimbursement from the family if they have medical insurance, and if not, the secondary medical coverage on the summer camp insurance would become primary and could be a source for department reimbursement.

UTA Health Services is not available to externally hosted programs.
