Volunteer Information

STEPS Camps for 2020 will be a 100% virtual experience for the campers.  Unfortunately we will not be able to build and fly airplanes with our wonderful volunteers this summer.  We appreciate your enthusiastic support and look forward to working together again next summer.  

Minors On Campus

Grand Valley State University adheres to a strict Minors on Campus policy.  

Grand Valley State University is committed to being a safe and healthy environment for all.  This includes students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors, especially those who are minors.  As a public university open to everyone, the University welcomes children and teenagers on our campuses for a variety of programs and activities planned by the University or by outside organizations.  In all situations, adults are expected to be positive role models for minors, acting in a respectful and responsible manner consistent with the mission and values of the University.  To promote this vision, the University publishes and enforces policies, procedures, and guidelines that have the goal of promoting health, safety, and security for minors on our campuses.

Safety during Virtual Camp

The faculty and staff that are employed at STEPS Camp must adhere to the University Minors on Campus policy.  We are all trained to best practices and must clear a background check.  The virtual camp experience will be designed with camper and staff safety in mind.  All class sessions and "chats" will be recorded and saved for safety and training purposes.
