A new law was passed in 2014 that requires all volunteers that have direct contact with children to complete THREE background checks. You will need to complete these in order to volunteer with Camp Jamison. Information for the three background checks are below.

All three background checks are initiated online by you. As the law stands now, an employee must complete new background checks for each new employer. Employees cannot use existing clearances to begin employment with a new employer, even though the certificates are valid for three years.
