Club U Summer Camp programs are the place to be for children and young adults looking to engage with their community. Inclusive summer programming offers children of all ages opportunities to explore the world around them, while developing 21st century skills enabling them to navigate an ever changing world.
Hosted on the historic grounds of President's Circle, Club U camps serve as a gateway to the abundant resources of the University of Utah and allows young learners an opportunity to connect with the campus community and explore future educational opportunities. Combine all this with an exceptional staff of youth development professionals, Club U Camps are just the place for a sensational summer of growth for the children of today, and the leaders of tomorrow!
Experience camp during fall, winter and spring recesses-it’s way better than staying home!!
What is S.C.I.B.O.
Club U's aim is to help youth develop in five key areas:
S: Specialized Skills- Improve skills in science, art and recreation
C: Campus- Explore the university and become more connected
I: Interact- Demonstrate the ability to positively interact with others
B: Belonging- Develop a sense of belonging in the greater community
O: Outdoors- Learn about the outdoor work and practice taking care of it
These goals are collectively referred to as S.C.I.B.O and are what Club U strives to incorporate in every field trip, elective, and group activity.
Hello Club U families! Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Utah has made the decision to cancel all in-person camp programs for summer 2020. Our Club U families are always at the forefront of our minds and the University's decision to cancel all in-person Club U programming was incredibly difficult to hear. The hardest part of the decision has been to think about the impact on your children. It is devastating that in-person camp will not happen this summer, but we agree it is the safest choice for your families, and that gives us comfort.
While we will greatly miss seeing campers smiling faces in-person, our team is hard at work creating a program designed to get your kids outside, connected with their community and make new friends. Be sure to check out our online Campus Camps and Pre-College offerings, and get ready to say, "YES!" to summer 2020!
Club U Director
Bri Butterfield Bri is beyond excited to return to Club U in her new role as Club U Camp Director! She is a graduate from the University of Utah where she earned a degree in Parks, Recreation and Tourism with an emphasis in Outdoor Recreation Studies. Bri comes to us with a vast background in both youth education and experiential education. She has spent time working for Girl Scouts of Utah as a summer camp director and oversaw their Outreach Program. She has also worked for Utah Schools for the Deaf and was blessed to work as a Club U Coordinator several summers ago.
Bri brings a passion for summer camp and knows the power camp can have in the lives of both campers and staff. In fact, it was while working at summer camp that she decided to change her degree to Outdoor Recreation Studies so she could continue to work in the summer camp realm. During her time as director, she hopes to continue to build on the amazing program Club U already has in place by bringing new and exciting programming to camp.
When Bri is not working and dreaming of camp, she loves to spend time with her wife and their two dogs, Cor and Pongo. She enjoys spending time in the kitchen, practicing calligraphy, hiking and catching up on her favorite reality TV shows. Bri is so excited for the opportunity to return to Club U and can't wait for all the adventures it provides.
