Plan a Summer Camp

Before you schedule a camp…

First, please review the University policy regarding camps and other programs that involve minors.

Policy on Camps with Minors

Take special note of the following.

Camp Employees & Volunteers

Important: In accordance with Florida Statute 409.175, background checks must be obtained for every employee, volunteer, independent contractor, and every other person who comes in contact with a minor as part of an officially sanctioned program on the Jacksonville University campus.

This regulation includes all sports, summer camps, and any other JU program that includes minors as participants. A minor is any child under 18 years of age.

The background checks must be completed prior to the start of any camp or program. A completed background check must include:

  • Criminal background check which includes the Sex Offender Registry
  • Level 2 Background check (fingerprinting)
  • Completion of the Affidavit of Good Moral Character

All costs associated with completing the background checks will be the responsibility of the camp or program.

Liability Insurance

Jacksonville University requires liability insurance from third parties wishing to use University facilities for meetings, conferences, seminars, weddings, camps or other special events. This requirement can be satisfied by providing a certificate of insurance from your insurance company/agent.
