Each year, SMU offers a review session for those campemployees who are involved with hosting or coordinating camps for minors, either on or off-campus.

If you fall within the following role definitions, you are strongly encouraged to attend this seminar.

Camp Operators:  those hosting camps for minors either on SMU’s campus or off campus

Program Coordinators: SMU employees who coordinate camps at SMU, or off campus, on behalf of others (either SMU employees or non-employees utilizing SMU facilities).

The seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Best practices to ensure a healthy camp atmosphere
  • Reporting abuse, should you see or hear about it
  • The State of Texas requirement for all camp employees to be trained by an approved training vendor
  • SMU’s policy on the Duty to Report and your responsibility for record-keeping to minimize risk for yourself and the University
  • Accessing the training program resources SMU provides to employees, non-employees, students and volunteers

This review session is coordinated by the SMU Office of Risk Management in partnership with SMU Office of Legal Affairs, SMU Police Department, SMU Human Resources and the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC).

Please note this review session is NOT intended to replace the State mandated training. Those hosting camps must have completed the state training within 2 years of the start of the camp session.  Please review your training summary in my.SMU and email if you need to retake the training to meet the state requirement. Once your email is received, HR will enroll you in the training and you will receive an email announcing that the training is assigned and ready for you to access.
