Child Protection Policy

High Hill Christian Camp & Retreat Center has implemented a Child Protection System. The system implemented has 3 major components and are as follows: Screening and Selecting Employees and Volunteers, Ensuring a Safe Environment, and Training about Child Abuse Prevention.

SCREENING AND SELECTING EMPLOYEES AND VOLUNTEERS

Background Check – The dean of each week conducts a background check for each of their volunteers if they do not already have one on file. Once completed, the dean submits a BACKGROUND CHECK VERIFICATION form to the High Hill Christian Camp office.

Volunteer Staff Verification and Release form – This form verifies some very important information about each volunteer and helps them to understand the seriousness of certain issues. A link to this form is at the bottom of this document.

ENSURING A SAFE ENVIRONMENT

Camp Schedule - Our schedule is designed to make sure campers are under supervision at all times, therefore ensuring a safe environment for them.

Volunteer Manual – We have a Volunteer Manual that is given to every volunteer. It outlines the expectations we have for our volunteers.

TRAINING ABOUT CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION

Child Protection Training Video –  EVERY volunteer is required to watch a video about child abuse prevention. Volunteers can watch it on their own before they come to camp or we will have it available for them to watch before camp starts. One of the things they must verify on the Volunteer Verification and Release form is that they have watched the video. The video is on Youtube and entitled “Child Protection Training Video for CPR Camp”. Click here to watch the video:
