The Office of Youth Protection website serves as a central repository for university policies, training, and program registration for youth programs and activities.

Important Notices:


  • Update 3/25/2021: Due to public health concerns, residential (overnight) programs this summer will be limited to UVA-sponsored programs whose participants are UVA students, faculty, and staff. University officials are assessing whether we may be able to safely offer some day camps this summer and will have further information by April 15, 2021.
  • The Office of Youth Protection desires all youth programs to offer and deliver a safe and fun experience for every participant--youth and staff. Discover procedures and resources designed to assist programs in navigating best practices and restrictions during COVID-19 here
  • Decisions for when in-person Covered Programs are allowable or need to be canceled/postponed will likely be made with little notice. To learn the most current status, please contact the Office of Youth Protection at youthprotection@virginia.edu.
  • Guidance and information is subject to change as the University, local, and state response to COVID-19 evolves. The University's most up-to-date information is available at returntogrounds.virginia.edu.
