BYU Sports Camps 2022 Summer COVID-19 Management Policy

Because the health and safety of our youth participants and our staff is of utmost importance, BYU Sports Camps has adopted this COVID-19 management policy to guard against the risks associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. All youth and their parents, as well as staff, are expected to abide by these responsibilities and protocols as a condition of participation. COVID-19 conditions are dynamic, and BYU Sports Camps reserves the right, at its own discretion, to cancel a camp for health and safety, or any other reasons. Where a complete or partial camp cancellation occurs due to COVID-19, BYU will provide full or pro-rata refunds, respectively, to participants. BYU Sports Camps reserves the right to send youth home if they are sick.

BYU strongly encourages participants and staff to receive up-to-date COVID-19 vaccinations.

Participant Responsibilities
