GREENVILLE, S.C. (May 13, 2020) – Bob Jones University announced today that the University’s EDUcamp, EDUcamp Jr. and Bruins sports camp programs are canceled for this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In order to protect the health and safety of our University family as well as our campers, we are canceling our popular summer camping programs for 2020,” said BJU President Steve Pettit. “With this decision, we can focus our attention on providing a safe, healthy and robust on-campus experience for our students this fall.”

In making the decision, BJU consulted with its School of Health Professions faculty, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and the faculty who teach the camps to determine if the camps could be safely held. After a thorough review, the decision was made to cancel camps for this summer.

Campers who registered for any of the programs will receive a full refund.
