With summer just around the corner, summer camps and youth services providers are making preparations for the fast-approaching camp season.

We invite you to join Linda L. Yoder and Leander A. Dolphin for a webinar discussion of the Americans with Disabilities Act's (ADA) application to camp and other youth programs, and a review of top tips to consider, including accommodations, modifications of policies and procedures, provision of auxiliary aids, and safety concerns.

We will cover frequently asked questions such as:

  • Who is considered "disabled" under the ADA?
  • Is our summer camp or youth services program required to comply with the ADA?
  • How do we determine if our organization's programs, buildings and grounds are ADA accessible?
  • How do we respond to requests for accommodation?
  • Are we required to modify policies and procedures?
  • How do we determine whether an accommodation is reasonable?
  • What if there are competing and conflicting requests for accommodation?
  • How do we respond to safety concerns?
  • What steps can we take to ensure that our contracts protect us from liability or other concerns?

Who should attend:  Camp Directors, Summer Athletics Program Directors, Risk Management Personnel, Parks and Recreational Personnel, Human Resource Professionals, Facilities Managers and Personnel
