Decisions Regarding Summer Camps, Program to be Made by Early April

As the prevalence and impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve, Duke’s Coronavirus Committee is monitoring the situation both in the U.S. and abroad and is in regular contact with national, state, and local health officials. At present, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at Duke or in North Carolina.

With the start of Duke’s always-busy summer season approaching, we are continuing to assess our ability to safely support the thousands of youth, instructors and visitors who will participate in dozens of camps and programs that are scheduled to be held on campus between May and August. At this time, we expect that all programs will continue as planned. However, it is important to note that this a dynamic situation, and we may need to make adjustments if conditions change significantly over the coming weeks.

We know that program leaders and families will need clarity regarding any potential modifications or cancellations as quickly as possible. To that end, Duke will provide specific guidance regarding summer camps and programs by early April. Until then, we encourage program leaders to plan for normal operations. Please refer to for the latest news and updates from Duke.

Our highest priority is protecting the well-being of our students, patients, faculty, staff, and visitors. Thank you each for what you are doing to keep Duke safe during this challenging time.
