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. Summer 2022 forms will be available early 2022. 

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.

  • Campus Program Employee Listing Form 26-1

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.

HEALTH SERVICES

UTA Health Services is available to all programs hosted by a University department or division during normal business hours. There is not 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.
