The following forms may be downloaded for use as needed. Please complete and return within the timeframe as instructed on the form. Note that the Epi-pen/Inhaler permission requires a health care professional signature, per NH State law.

Various waivers were also required as part of the registration process for youth programs. Online registrations included parent/guardian review and acknowledgement of the following waivers:

  • UNH Assumption of Risk waiver
  • Permission to Treat
  • Photo/Creative Works consent
  • UNH Code of Conduct for minors attending youth programs

Athletic Camps: A physical is not required, but due to the rigorous daily schedule, every camper should arrive at camp prepared to fully participate. Every effort is made to protect the camper's health and safety, and a certified athletic trainer is present at all times.

The University of New Hampshire seeks to create a welcoming and inclusive youth program experience for all participants. Reasonable accommodation, consistent with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended, Section 504 and applicable state law, may be requested to support participation of individuals with disabilities in youth camps and other youth activities. If an accommodation is needed for any reason, please submit the Accommodations Request Form. Accommodation request determinations are made on a case by case basis. Accommodation requests should be made at the time of registration, or as soon as possible thereafter to allow sufficient time for consideration and implementation.

Students with Learning, Behavioral, Physical and Medical Needs

Open communication between UNH and families is important for us to meet student needs. If the student has a learning, physical, dietary, behavioral, mental health, or medical need that requires accommodation, awareness, or support, please provide that information within the online registration questions. Also feel free to contact the program manager, or Cathy Leach (contact info below). Communicating with use early will result in the student's maximum success in the youth program and will allow for sufficient time for UNH staff to follow up with families, if needed. Subsequent follow up may include learning more about the student's needs within the context of a program's structure and expectations academically and socially.

Please refer to our general "Essential Skills" list (on the website shortly) for an understanding of the basic structure, expectations, and activities of our youth programs. For questions or concerns relating to a particular program, please contact that program director.
