Our number one priority is safety. All of our staff, counselors, camp workers and other volunteers need to complete the following forms prior to their arrival at camp. If you are age 21 or older and are not a resident of Indiana or Michigan, please contact the camp office and we will assist you in getting the appropriate form for your state.

For All Employees & Volunteers

All paid camp employees and volunteers over the age of 18 are required to complete the Verified Volunteers child safety training and background check process. Employees and Volunteers over the age of 21 are required to complete the Central Registry Clearance Form.

Why a Background Check?


“Church should be a safe place to bring our children. Everyone involved in work with children who are minors must meet all Church and legal standards and requirements” (Church Manual, Edition 18, pp. 168-169).

Who Has to do It?


As part of this effort, those over 18 who are voted to serve within our churches or organizations, and those who are employed by the church and working with children and youth, are asked to complete a criminal background check (FB 20) and child protection training through Sterling Volunteers. This should be completed every three years. For help with registration, passwords, usernames, background checks and website questions review Online Help/FAQs, submit a Helpdesk Email Form, or call 1-855-326-1860.
