Safety is UAB’s priority. The pandemic is a fluid situation that UAB is monitoring, in consultation with infectious disease and public health experts; events will be subject to change based on the latest COVID-19 safety guidelines. All camps are registered with UAB’s Youth Protection program. Protocols for in-person summer camps may include masking, daily temperature checks, social distancing, smaller groups, outdoor rehearsals and more.
