Background checks will be run on anyone applying for a camp position or working directly with campers. Please know that having a record does not necessarily mean you will not be able to volunteer. We are well aware of how folks in our communities are criminalized. So, if you have any questions or concerns about a background check, please call Sarah Brooks (904) 705-1027 or Sarah Humphreys (904) 208-0382. To ease the burden of expense, we ask volunteers to pay for all or part of their background checks, which could be up to $35 but it will not be a requirement.
