Coastal Carolina University offers a variety of summer programs including camps, conferences, academics and other events. These programs are run by both internal departments and external organizations. All of our programs seek to engage participants with interactive learning experiences while providing a fun, rewarding, and safe experience for all. The Office of Scheduling and Space Management works with these programs, University Housing and the University food vendor, CCUFoodCrew to have a successful summer season.
Every effort will be made to assist any participants with special needs; it is the policy of Coastal Carolina University to make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities.
Here is a current list of our available programs. More programs will be added and some programs may not be listed here.
This depends on the program but there are typically programs made for incoming freshman, college students and youth. There may be some programs offered for specific organizations.

Housing for summer programs is only available from late May until mid-late July. These dates change every year.
The University has several different housing options. While the programs may request certain buildings, these requests are not guaranteed. Some housing buildings may not be available due to renovations, availability and other reasons. Programs with minors are not allowed to stay in Woods and University Place. Here is a breakdown of each housing space: University Housing.
University housing rates depend on the building and room type that participants are in. Rates for Summer 2023 range from $21.50 to $34 plus accommodation taxes. Rates can change yearly. Requests to not specifically not fill rooms to capacity will result in charges for beds not used (For example, double rooms that only have one participant placed there to provide single room accommodations). No shows or room assignment changes made less than fourteen days prior to check in will result in a flat charge of one bed night per change.
University staff reserves the right to enter any campus facilities, including residence hall rooms, to inspect the premises for the purpose of routine mainenance, room preparation for the upcoming academic year, safety, health and management of applicable rules and regulations. If a University staff member has to enter a residence hall, they will announce themselves several times before and during entry.
Linen packages are available for purchase if arranged through the program. The package includes a flat sheet, fitted sheet, towel, washcloth, pillow and pillow case.
Dining requests will be reviewed by CCUFoodCrew based on the summer program's requests during the initial review process for summer programs. CCUFoodCrew will work with requesters about their dining options which can including dining halls and catering. CCUFoodCrew will discuss pricing with requestors based on their options.
Dining cost will be invoiced by CCUFoodCrew separately from other summer program charges. Dining count guarantees will be required 14 days prior to arrival. A 50% deposit on those guaranteed counts or a credit card on file will be required by the CCUFoodCrew.
Parking is currently free during the summer and a permit is not required. Parking in an unauthorized space (ex. handicap, 24 faculty/staff, etc.) will result in a ticket from Public Safety.

Coastal Carolina University values diversity, equity and inclusion in all of its forms and values civility and fairness towards individuals, cultures, ideas and resources. Coastal Carolina University believes that it is important that all on our campus act in a respectful manner towards each other and themselves. Programs are responsible for the conduct of their group members. In addition to any rules and regulations that your conference may have, all CCU policies must be thoroughly communicated and enforced. In addition to policies not specifically communicated, we expect your group to observe common sense guidelines for safe and acceptable behaviors.
The University has their own Department of Public Safety that monitors campus 24/7. More information can be found here: Safety and Security. Please instruct all your participants to lock their rooms at all times, even when sleeping and at no time to loan their key to another individual. CCU is not responsible for articles that are lost or stolen while on campus.
The Office of Emergency Management has several procedures in place for an emergency. More information can be found here: Emergency Procedures.
Any minors that are a part of your program need to be chaperoned at all times. Adult supervision in the residence halls should be evenly dispersed throughout the building. Minors should not be wandering the campus without a chaperone. If there is free time with multiple activities, minors should be divided into the activities that they want to participate in and travel in groups with the chaperone to the different activity. Programs must also be in compliance with the Minors on Campus policy.
