All leaders and staff for the Brethren summer-camp sessions are now required to complete our district’s Volunteer Application Form (available at the link above). We are all concerned about following best practices for assuring our campers’ safety. One of those practices is to conduct a background check for those who will be in direct contact with our campers. This has long been recommended by the American Camp Association, and is required for their member camps.
Please fill out and sign the form and send it to the Western Plains District Office at P.O. Box 394, McPherson, KS 67460, by May 1. After the background check is completed, the section containing the applicant’s social security number will be shredded. This is the same check that the district office has done for pastors and is valid for five years. (Please bring your health form, completed and signed, to camp with you.) Leaders and staff may not serve without this application form received at the district office before camp starts.
The Outdoor Ministries Vision Fulfillment Team thanks you for your cooperation.
