East Carolina University’s Youth Programs and Camps Office (YPCO) was established to centralize the approval process for all youth-serving programs and camps covered by the ECU Youth Programs and Camps Interim Regulation. The YPCO is intended to help schools, colleges, and departments comply with the regulation that applies to all programs and camps that serve one or more youth participants, are operated on or off campus, and have one or more of the youth participants left in the care or supervision of East Carolina University employees or volunteers.
The YPCO takes a proactive approach to protecting children and the employees, faculty and staff of the University. The YPCO also works with colleges, departments, and external clients to provide general guidance and support on programming details for youth programs and camps. This includes referrals on matters related to housing, meals, publicity, pre-registrations, registrations, financial management, transportation and facilities.
