Police Checks

It is absolutely mandatory that you obtain a Criminal Record Check that includes a Vulnerable Sector Report. If you live in Canada, you are eligible to complete this Check online through the BC government. You will need to go to the following link: https://justice.gov.bc.ca/eCRC/home.htm (copy and follow in another browser tab) and enter the access code that will be emailed to you by the Head Counselors after your counselor application is received. If you live outside of Canada, you will need to complete a Criminal Record Check at your local police station. In that case, the Head Counselors will send you a letter for the police station confirming your involvement in our volunteer organization. You will need to hand your completed check to the Head Counselors when you arrive for your week of camp.

Interviews

You may be contacted by the Head Counselor and interviewed in person or over the phone, to gain a better idea of what you can give to camp and what you expect from camp.
