Youth Camp Background Template
The YC (Youth Camp) Volunteer Background Template is available free to download, customize and print for your camp preparation...
The Youth Camp Volunteer Background Check form or template below is a great tool and may I point out a very important tool in your Youth Camp paperwork process that does not need to be excluded if at all possible.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make in your hiring process is skipping the background and reference checks on your potential church employee especially if they are going to be working with children.
A reference check is an opportunity to protect your youth camp, church and/or organization and also to help get to know to your potential church employee.
Information from your church background check reports should be made available to all the decision makers before the final hiring process. If the report comes back cleared and positive then great, but if you have any questions through the reference and background checks then you need to continue conversations with your potential new hire in an effort to get clarity on these questions.
There is a misconception of doing background checks on church employees in that they are done to "dig up dirt" on a potential employee, but this is not the case. The background check process is intended to get you to know your potential church employee better and gain clarity on whether they could be a good fit for your church team or not.
The free template for Volunteer Background Checks - Authorization and Consent below is a one page form that includes:
- Potential Employee's Name
- Potential Employee's Other Names Used
- Potential Employee's Social Security Number, Date of Birth, Driver's License, State, and Present Address

limited to, the following: credit reporting agencies, current and past

authorize, without reservation, any individual, corporation or other private or

use these paid services on a regular basis.
