WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) — The University of North Carolina at Wilmington says it is extending the cancellation of its summer programs, camps, and non-athletic conferences due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The school had initially announced that its summer programming was canceled through June 24. Another announcement from the school said the programming is now canceled through Aug. 5.
UNCW said in a statement that some camps and programs will be offering participation online and urges those interested to check individual programs’ websites for information. UNCW Athletics will announce a decision about its camps by May 15.
The statement said while the school is disappointed to have to cancel its non-athletics programming, it believes it has to proceed with the safety of campers and the community, in mind.
