Youth Program Resources


Our COVID-19 safety plans for summer 2022 are under development and will reflect current University, PA DOH, and Federal guidance. All potential applicants to our youth residential programs are encouraged to regularly check our youth residential programs website for updated information and expectations, which are subject to change and may or may not include an expectation for all participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of participation. We strongly support COVID-19 vaccination and direct you to the CDC website on Key Things to Know on COVID-19 Vaccines to learn more about the vaccines and where to obtain them in your area.
