THE QUEST FOR YOUR BEST SUMMER EVER STARTS NOW!
Call 801.585.1911 or visit www.youth.utah.edu
MAP OUT YOUR
SUMMER
Advance Yourself to
the Nearest Camp and
HAVE FUN!
It’s your turn for wacky wizards and goofy gadgets
For splishing and splashing and rocking and rolling
For amping abilities and inflating intelligence
For time travel, fabulous friends, and incredible inventions
With 11 amazing Club U Camps to choose from, you’ll find
excitement with every move you make!
THE LOWDOWN
Parents/Guardians
Parents will receive a detailed itinerary at the beginning of each week.
Meeting Time and Place
Drop kids off at Presidents Circle (200 South 1340 East) between 8:00 and 8:15 AM (no
earlier, please!); formal activities begin at approximately 8:30 AM and will end at approximately
3:00 PM. Students will be ready for pick up between 3:00 and 3:15 PM. Any students not
picked up by 3:15 PM will be taken to the Club U Lounge and fees will be charged.
Inclement Weather
Club U Camps will be held rain or shine. Drop off and pick up will occur in the Naval
Science Gym during inclement weather. Please contact the office (801-581-6984) if
you are unsure about the location for any particular day.
Weekly Themes
The theme acts as a basic framework to provide focus and direction for the activities
within each weekly session. This usually applies to electives, guest artists, and weekly field
trips. We would like to remind you that all of our weeks may include activities unrelated
to the theme, such as swimming, arts, hiking, sports or other great activities. This does
not mean that the quality of the activity will be less than that of a themed activity; rather
it allows us to better serve the interests of all children in the camps.
Safety Considerations
We have taken the following measures to ensure the safety of your child: (1) An
extensive criminal background check has been conducted on all Club U staff. (2)
All Club U counselors are CPR and First Aid Certified. (3) Club U counselors will
apply or will facilitate each child in applying sunscreen at the beginning of and during
lunch each day. (4) Club U counselors will carry extra water where water is not readily
available to ensure that each child is adequately hydrated in the summer heat.
Club U Lounge - After 3:00 PM
If you can’t pick up your child at 3:15 PM, we have set up the Club U Lounge to provide
activities for the remainder of the day. If you choose this extended care program, a Club U
staff member will escort your child to the Lounge. Campers will then be able to unwind after
a long day of fun learning by participating in loosely structured activities including arts and
crafts, board games, sports, or just reading and chilling out with new friends. Open pickup is
from 3:30 to 6:00 PM. The Lounge includes a small snack. If your child has food allergies,
please be sure to indicate that on the appropriate form. The two-day Club U Lounge is for
parents who need one or two days of fun for their children after 3:15 PM. The five-day Club
U Lounge is for parents who need three to five days of fun for their children after 3:15 PM.
Late Fee
A late fee of $1 is charged for every one minute students remain after 6:10 PM at
the Club U Lounge.
Electives
Students have the opportunity to take their pick from a variety of elective classes
each week. Elective classes are usually held Tuesdays through Thursdays in the
mornings. Students sign up for one elective that they will participate in for three
days. Please note that all paperwork needs to be turned in prior to signing up for
electives. Electives are first come, first served. Please see elective courses online
at www.youth.utah.edu.
Lunch and Snacks
A supervised lunch hour is scheduled daily from approximately 11:00 AM-12:00
PM. Note that lunch times may change according to the daily schedule. Please
pack nutritious lunches and snacks so that your child will have enough fuel to get
through a busy day of outdoor recreation and summer-time activities. ***NOTE:
Lunch is included for the Club U Varsity participants.
Transportation
Many activities require us to use public transportation, Salt Lake School District
busses, or State Motor Pool mini-vans. Club U counselors have been trained to
safely travel on UTA busses and trains. Any counselor driving a motor vehicle
has been certified with the state by taking a defensive driving course. They must
also have a clean driving record. Your child’s well being is very important, and
we do our best to keep everyone safe while traveling off campus.
Parking
Metered parking around President’s Circle will be free from 8:00-8:30 AM and
3:00-3:30 PM as a courtesy to parents dropping off and picking up campers. Please
be aware that outside of these windows tickets will be issued for expired meters and
parking in a reserve space is always prohibited. We strongly encourage parents to
bring change for parking every day in case of unforeseen delays.
Miscellaneous
Children must come prepared with sunblock, a backpack, a hat, and athletic shoes
(no open-toed shoes allowed; sandals or flip flops are allowed only at the pool).
Children must bring a one-liter water bottle every day. Having enough water
is extremely important, since we are often outside in the summer heat for long
periods. Students will receive a Club U t-shirt that needs to be worn each day.

wonders of water. Harness the power of
precipitation by sending a water rocket
to new heights. Develop designs for
the most buoyant boats and test your
models in some fantastic fountains. Slip,
slide, or slither to Hogle Zoo to see
your furry friends and learn how they
keep cool during the scorching summer
months. Finally, strap on your water
wings and get ready for a bodacious
brine bath at the Great Salt Lake,
wrapping up this wondrous water week.

Make Your Mark: Artistic Adventures
(Age 5-11)
We’re doing something we have never
done in Club U before; a week all about
art! If you’re not the artistic type, don’t
worry because, as usual, we will put a
whole new spin on things. Get outside,
test your brain, and make masterpieces
that will make you say WOW! See the
science in art as you take a look at how
engineers and architects design bridges
and buildings, then try it yourself. Glide
through galleries and find adventure
in art as you design, draw, and create
your own comic book characters.
Transform ordinary items into miniature
masterpieces, or team up with some
creative cats and help with a community
art project. End your artistic adventure
by wandering into Mother Nature’s
spacious studios to admire her wonderful
work at one of Utah’s picturesque alpine
lakes.

Play a series of games recreating the
decisive battles in Western Europe in
1944, including the D-Day landings

and advanced rules for using tanks,
infantry, artillery and defensive ter-
rain to accomplish their objectives in
each battle . Memoir ’44 is considered
a “light,” accessible, tactical-level war
game in which players use command
cards to activate troops, dice to resolve
combat, and lots of cool plastic figures
set up on a modular board with variable

Float: The Physics of Flight (Age 12-18)
Students will take an experiential
journey building their own ultralight
airplane as they learn the principles
of physics that allow these crafts to
seemingly defy gravity. Different
designs and materials will be studied
as students experiment with build-
ing multiple models. As the week
progresses we will move from basic
design features and the concept of lift
to the more advanced and majestic. We
will find ways to shave off ounces and
perfect our designs as we attempt to
create crafts that don’t go the fastest or
the furthest, but prolong the wonder
of flight by floating longer than what
seems reasonable or even possible!

"This is a wonderful program. We like the
way the teaching associates field trips with
writing. We’re so glad to see that everyday
our daughter comes home and tells us with
excitement about what she learned at the
camp and shows us what she writes."
