8. Background checks

Churches need to make sure you have done a background check on all adults. (Bring copies to camp.)

1 to 7 ratio …

There should be 1 male adult for every 7 male teenager and 1 female adult for every 7 female teenager. We recommend more if possible. For example, if you were able to bring 1 adult for every 4 or 5 teenagers that will give them some extra attention, prayer covering and relationship building opportunities. 

All adults (and students 18 years & up) need to have gone through Sexual Abuse Awareness Training before camp. Link above as #2. (Bring copies of everyone’s certificate to camp.)


For those helping at camp, there will be NO charge for the training if completed by a certain date, after that it’s $5. (Youth camp is 3 weeks before being Mon. June 3rd and for Kid’s camp it’s 2 weeks before being Wed. May 22nd.)

If you have others in your church you would like to have trained & receive a certificate of completion, it would just be $5 each. This should be required training for anyone you have working with children and youth at your church or ministry. It would actually be ideal if everyone (even if they don’t work in any student ministries) in your church was fully trained like this on what to look out for to protect kids & youth from potential or current abuse. Along with specifics of what to do and what not to do in different situations. 

Background Checks

Remember to bring copies of every adult’s background check to camp. These can be processed by your church through whoever they prefer. Or you can order background checks through EGP. The current cost is $14 each for Texas residents. If from other states, you need to request those cost, as some may be alot more.
