The safety and security of our students, staff, and volunteers is our number one priority. Therefore, every staff member, volunteer, and/or overnight guest, who is 18 years of age or older must submit to a criminal background check. This background check must be run by us on each volunteer. We cannot accept a background check performed by another agency. After you fill out the Volunteer Application, you will receive an email from campbackgroundchecks.com, subject line "Background Check," with a unique link to go to their secure site to enter your information. If you do not receive this email within 3-5 business days of submitting your application, first check your SPAM folder. If it is not there, please contact the director. (If you do not have an email address, please Contact Us after you fill out your Volunteer Application.) Copies of the background check are available to you at no cost when you check the box on the form. There are no costs for you associated with this process.
Maiden Names, Alternate Names, & Driver's License
Be sure to include your maiden name and any alternate names you have used when filling out the form. This will help reduce false positives. If you do not have a driver's license, simply write NONE in the box and put your home state.
Church Leader Reference
During the application process, you will be asked to provide a reference from a church leader at your current church. Please have that name and either phone or email contact information ready when you fill out your form.
You will also need to provide one emergency contact on your Volunteer Application. Please have the name and phone number ready.
Climbing Wall & Zip Line
Any volunteer older than 4th grade MAY be able to use the climbing wall and zip line during camp if they are open during your week of camp. Campers have first priority and there is no guarantee that you will get to use them. However, if you would like the opportunity, you must check the box on the Volunteer Application and fill out the Climbing Wall/Zip Line Release & Medical Information Form. No one is allowed to climb or zip without this form. Any volunteer under 18 must have a parent/guardian fill out that form.
Volunteer Fees, Snack Shack, & Missions
We are thankful that you have given up your time - there are no volunteer registration fees for registered volunteers. You will also be provided with snacks/drinks from the Snack Shack when it is open to campers, subject to the same rules and restrictions given to campers. There will be a mission for each week of camp, and you may desire to bring additional monies to donate to that missionary. This is strictly voluntary.
After you fill out your Volunteer Application and Background Check, you will be contacted by either the Volunteer Coordinator or the Dean for your week of camp. If you have not been contacted, go the page on this website for the specific camp you'll be attending and click on the dean's name to email him or her directly.
