Insurance for Camps & Youth Enrichment Programs

Insurance requirements for conducting / sponsoring a university camp or youth outreach program:

1. As a condition of approval, each camp or youth outreach program is required to show evidence of general liability and accident medical insurance coverage, or participate in a policy to be purchased by the University. The cost of the required insurance coverage will be the responsibility of the sponsoring department.

2. Third Party Camps must secure their own insurance coverage. They are subject to the same approval and insurance coverage criteria as internal camps. Third Party Camps must provide evidence of a general liability insurance policy under which Texas A&M University-Kingsville is listed as “additional insured”.

3. All insurance coverage shall be approved by System Risk Management in accordance with System Regulation 24.01. System Risk Management will grant approval after a risk assessment has been completed to determine the necessity and type of coverage best suited to mitigate target risk.

For more information about insurance coverage and rates available for summer and sports camps, enrichment programs, club events, retreats, field trips and other occasions please review the information about the Texas A&M System Special Risk Accident Insurance Program.
