Thank you for your interest in being a counselor at camp. Every year at camp, we work very hard to create an environment where our Lord and Savior can produce profound changes in the lives of those who attend and this year is no different. If you have joined us at camp in the past, you will notice a significant change in the application forms and the process due to new laws from the State of California.
Completing these forms is a requirement for service, and because of the nature of this being a ministry to youth and children, the camp directors reserve the right to turn down requests to serve.
As the camp's directors, we believe that God and the campers' parents have entrusted us to select 'Christ-like' individuals to mentor their children. The main criteria for being a camp volunteer are that you are: 1) a committed Christian, 2) a person who understands the serious responsibility involved in working with children and young people, and 3) a person who is active in the life of their church and involved in your church's youth group or children's ministry programs.
I agree to review and edit the content of all my social networking sites so that any language, photos, conversations or other content is appropriate and consistent with a Christ-Centered life. I understand that camp Directors may look at my sites prior to my acceptance as a counselor for camp and agree to confirm them as friends for this purpose. I understand that this is important in being a good example to younger students who will be "friending" me on, and viewing my social networking sites after camp.
The information contained in this application is correct to the best of my knowledge. I authorize any references or churches listed in this application to provide any evidence or information (including opinions) that they may have regarding my character and fitness for working with children or high school students. In consideration of the receipt and evaluation of this application (by the directors of the SDCF's Mt. Palomar Bible Camp), I hereby release any individual, church, youth organization, employer, reference, or any other person or organization, including record custodians, both collectively and individually, from any and all liability for damages of whatever kind or nature which may at any time result to me, my heirs, or family, on account of compliance or any attempt to comply, with this authorization. I waive any right that I may have to inspect any information provided about me by any person or organization identified by me in this application.
I further state that I have carefully read the foregoing release and know the contents thereof and I sign this release as my own free act. I have read and understand that this is a legally binding agreement. I further understand that a background check will be conducted on me, and I consent to any such check.
READ THIS AGREEMENT CAREFULLY
After submitting, please be patient and wait for the confirmation!
