Youth Education’s Policies and Procedures

In order to ensure the best possible experience for your child, we ask that you read carefully and adhere to Youth Education’s Policies and Procedures.
Policies and Procedures.

Summer registration opens the first full week of February each year.

To secure a spot in the class, payment needs to be taken at time of registration either online, by phone, or in our office (540 Arapeen Drive #210). Payment Plans are available. Please call for more information at 801-581-6964, or email us at, some restrictions apply.

Generally, all camps and classes are a weeklong and vary between half-day and full-day.

Online registration closes the Thursday before camp starts. We can take phone registrations until the Friday before the camp begins, if it isn't full.

Outside of some recreation options, all other athletic camps are hosted through the University's athletic department. You can contact athletic summer camps (football, basketball, soccer) at Utah Utes or 801-581-8171.

We offer a 15% discount on tuition for all current U employees.

Parents are not allowed to sit in on any of our camps or classes. We’ve found that children behave better without their parents in the class. Exceptions must be approved by Youth Education and the instructor.

If your camper is exhibiting symptoms of illness, please keep them home until they are no longer symptomatic. Youth Education does not issue refunds or partial refunds for absences. If a student misses a day, they are encouraged to come all other days.

Our waitlist policy will be on a first come first serve basis. As seats become available, parents/guardians will be contacted via email notifying them of openings in the corresponding classes and camps. To claim a spot, follow the instructions in the email. You will not be removed from the wait list unless you request it. You will remain on the list in case another spot opens up.

Upon registration, or any time after, account holders can list individuals as authorized pickups. These individuals will be allowed to pick up campers after providing photo identification. In the event that an individual who is not listed as an authorized contact needs to pick up a child from camp, it is the responsibility of the primary guardian to notify the Youth Education offices (801-581-6984) to supply this information.

You will be sent an email the Wednesday/Thursday prior to the start of any given week of camp. This email will contain important information including an itinerary of the week's events, links to elective sign-ups, liability forms and permission waivers for select activities that will be offered that week.

Campers can communicate via camp staff and/or leadership to contact guardians if necessary. As per our technology policy, campers should not be using cell phones during camp hours. Guardians will be contacted immediately for any serious injuries, illnesses, and major behavioral incidents.

Guardians should communicate directly with camp staff, leadership, or the office and all information will be passed to the camper as needed.

All camper medications and medical conditions MUST be reported prior to attending Youth Ed programs. In the case of emergency medication (Epinephrine or Inhaler), the device should remain with the child at all times, and camp staff will need to be informed of specific medical needs.
