Planning a Youth Program or Camp

East Carolina University offers an array of resources to both East Carolina University Faculty, Staff and students as well as outside organizations and groups. In order to better serve you, please follow the link that applies to the audience you plan to serve OR the audience your organization will serve while utilizing East Carolina University facilities or resources:

These audiences are children and youth that are under the age of 18. If your program plans to serve or interact with these audiences, please follow the link for youth audiences.

Please keep in mind that the number of individuals being served should not be incorporated into your program's classification. It is possible for a program to serve both youth and adult audiences. If your program serves any youth, regardless of the number of adults served, please follow the link for youth audiences.

ECU Covered Youth Programs or Camps

All youth programs and camps must be approved by the appropriate department chair/unit director and dean or vice chancellor. Once approved the Program/Camp Administrator must submit the Youth Programs/Camps registration form to the Youth Programs and Camps Office at least 60 days prior to the start date of the program/camp.  Responsibility for this policy rests with departmental leadership who shall ensure that their programs and activities involving minors are compliant with the University Youth Camps and Programs Regulation.
***The Youth Program and Camps registration form for covered programs is now on OrgSync!  

Third Party Youth Programs or Camps
