Safety precautions priority

The plan, approved by UM’s COVID Recovery Steering Committee highlights safety of participants and staff as priority through an experience on a smaller scale, and with limited attendance and strict operational procedures.

While specific camp offerings and registration information has not yet been announced, the faculty is pleased to contribute to the university and community’s recovery.

“It has always been our intention to support the efforts of UM’s recovery and impact the community in positive ways. Mini U and Junior Bisons provide additional opportunities to reengage with the broader community and encourage learning and development in our youth,” expressed Doug Brown, dean, Faculty of Kinesiology and Recreation Management. 

Summer programming details, including registration dates, will be announced in the coming weeks. For now, the focus is on hiring and putting in place the staff required to run the programs effectively, efficiently and safely.
