Financial obligations arising from dismissal from the program, including travel costs, are the responsibility of the camper and parent/guardian. Should a camper be dismissed from the program for any reason, camp fees, room and board charges, and any other program-related expenses will not be refunded.

Health & Safety Inspections

Brown University Summer Sports Camps

Residential staff conducts room inspections that are designed to seek out and correct potentially dangerous situations before they cause damage or harm. If in the reasonable course of such an inspection other violations of Summer Program rules are observed, they may be reported to the Director. The University reserves the right to enter residence hall rooms without the consent of the occupant in order to provide for the general well-being and protection of the community, its members and property.


Dangerous weapons such as firearms and knives are strictly prohibited. Brown Department of Public Safety will confiscate a weapon and investigate the camper who possesses it; in addition, the camper will face sanctions.


Brown mandates a smoke-free environment. There is absolutely no smoking anywhere in the residence halls, including in camper rooms, the lounges, lobbies, balconies, bathrooms, hallways, and the dining halls, nor is there smoking allowed within 35 feet of the residence halls, classrooms, or offices on campus. Smoking is also prohibited at summer program sanctioned events. Failure to adhere to this policy may result in disciplinary action including notification of the camper’s parent/legal guardian.
