General Coverage Information

Sports camp insurance is an accident and sickness policy which covers the participants in the University of Alaska sports camps and recreational clinics held by the athletic departments. A brief description of the coverage, premiums, and procedures for obtaining coverage follows:

Sports Camp insurance is insurance which camp participants purchase as part of their camp fee. It is important to note that the sports camp insurance is excess to other insurance policies available to the student. In other words, the insurance picks up expenses after other coverage an injured student may qualify for under the student's personal insurance policy or parent's insurance have been exhausted.

Premiums for the sport camp are based on the number of days of the camp at the rate of $.75 per day. The athletic departments are required to report the number of camps and campers plus a description of each camp to the System Office of Risk Services. Camp Audit forms will be provided to the departments on a monthly basis. Each camp participant should receive a copy of a Sports Camp Insurance brochure(pdf).
