Our mission is to provide all participants with an authentic college experience that is hands-on, skills-oriented, high-energy, unique, and above all SAFE! The University strives to offer a safe and enjoyable educational environment for all minors attending programs on its campus. In support of this goal, MSU Media Summer Camps holds a set of operational requirements that should bring parents peace-of-mind.
All our faculty, staff, and volunteers complete a mandatory criminal background and sexual offender check, not just once but before every programming year. Each staff member goes through a series of trainings, and are certified in the following areas:
- program responsibilities and expectations
- program policies and procedures
- safety and security precautions
- prohibited harassment and reporting obligations
- reporting protocols for suspected child abuse or sexual assault
- activity or sports concussion awareness
- CPR, first-aid, first-respondent, emergency response, and accident response
Our Media Camp staff is selected based on performance, compliance review, and professional endorsements. 100% of our faculty has worked with our student assistant instructors and mentors, confirming their academic excellence. We regularly review the quality of our programs from our curriculum to our instructors to ensure we are delivering an exceptional experience to all. Students and parents are invited to evaluate our instructors and programs as well at the end of camp! Your feedback directly impacts the future direction and offerings of MSU Media Camps.
All visiting students are oriented and prepared with the following information:
- Safety and security procedures
- University rules, program rules, and behavioral expectations
- University reporting protocols for suspected child abuse and sexual assault
Every camper has an assigned chaperone, instructor, and assistant instructor. Our programs have a limited enrollment so we can maintain a high teacher/chaperone to student ratio to foster personalized learning, adult accessibility, and meaningful relationships at the University.
Every camper, day-only and overnight, is ensured through the University's Risk Management Office during the student's program enrollment dates. In our history of operation, we fortunately have never experienced an accident or student injury, but we are prepared just in case!
Need to get in touch with your child? Unexpected change of schedule, scheduling conflict, or family emergency? Our program director is available 24/7 during programming dates to assist families with special requests or emergencies.
