Summer Camps, Policies and Procedures

SRSU Departmental Summer Camps

A university department is hosting the event and is the primary sponsor. The university's name, along with the sponsoring department or organization, is used in all advertising. A separate operating account for the camp must be requested through the Controller's Office and in place before the camp begins. All revenues and expenses are to be handled through this account. Facility fees for a department or organization are as stipulated in the Facilities Use Policy.

SRSU Departmental Summer Camp Applications must be submitted to the University Center Director after approval by the appropriate vice president. The submission must include the camp's description and budget.

Brochures must be accurate, complete, descriptive (cost, how and where to pay, when payment is due, etc.) and abide by all appropriate university policies. Overnight housing and food service will be arranged through the contract developed between the camp sponsor and the University Center Director.
