The camp management shall ascertain and have on record information, such as a letter of reference, attesting to the character and integrity of each staff member, and information, such as training certificates, attesting to the ability of each staff member to perform the tasks required in his or her position.   (1) performing an annual criminal background check using a criminal history database for each adult staff member's and each adult volunteer's permanent residence.   (2) performing an annual background check using a sex offender registration database for each adult staff member's and each adult volunteer's permanent residence and educational residence if applicable...

To apply for a camp, simply click of the camp you would like to apply for. If you cannot find your camp, make sure they are registered within our system. 

You will need to fill in all relevant information for the application. At the end of the application, you will be asked to take a "Child Abuse Prevention and Recognition" course on-line. This must be completed in one sitting, so be sure to allow at least an hour for completion.

It is important that this be completed every 2 years in the state of Texas. Some camps require you to complete this every year. It takes less than one hour and has a test at the end of the training. Pay close attention to the key learning points. If you have any questions, you can contact us through the contact form. Or, you may contact the camp you are applying with directly.

Thanks and have a fantastic camping experience
