With Summer Approaching It’s Time to Protect Young Athletes and Campers with Thorough Background Screening

As days get longer summer fast approaches. Parents and kids are looking forward to the long summer break, often times from different perspectives. Kids are looking for a break from school and parents are wondering what to do with kids with so much time available.

Often time parents look at different opportunities to occupy a child’s summer day. One opportunity is summer camp.

Summer camp comes in a variety of forms:

• Day camp: Generally a localized activity covering a single day and filled with a wide variety of activities.

• Sleep over camp: These camps can last from a single over-night to extended visits up to a couple of weeks or even months.

• Theme camp: A theme can extend to location or activity or both. A week on a ranch in Montana tending to horses and cattle. A weekend in the mountains learning about a different topography or geography.

From (Mar. 30, 17):

Camp constitutes a place for kids to try new things, become more independent and gain self-confidence. Simple challenges for children include building fires, going on hikes or learning to ride horses; more complex situations, though, include understanding how to get along with others, learning to ask for help and trying things outside one’s comfort zone. Letting go can be difficult for parents, but it’s life-changing for kids. (1)

Adam Almeida, President and CEO of states: “Camp is a great outlet for a child’s energy, time and curiosity. As long as it is a safe environment a parent should only worry about a little one being homesick.”

A great many camps take considerable steps to protect children.

From (Mar. 30, 17):

The American Camp Association (ACA) provides guidelines for hiring and developing competent counselors. Pre-employment screening, education requirements, job descriptions and personnel policies, discipline procedures, training recommendations, performance evaluations, diversity requirements and the ratio of campers to staff are all part of the association’s voluntary accreditation program that offers benchmarks for management standards, including staffing. (2)

Certain camps set higher standards. Also, from

Some camps have developed their own hiring and training standards, which typically address preventing sexual harassment or abuse, CPR and first aid training, smoking and substance abuse policies, acceptance standards, guidelines for anger management, conflict resolution protocol, and reference checks, criminal background checks and a check of the national sex offender registry. (3)

Almeida states: “One key component of a good camp is the thoroughness of the background check. A complete background check is a great tool to utilize within a screening program. Combined with a solid interview, background screening helps further protect a child from potential risk.” is a third-party background screening company that can assist any organization or group with background screening of employed or volunteer camp counselors or employees. With access to numerous current and robust databases, as well as to county court records, can provide the most current, up-to-date, and reliable information available.
