Required Pennsylvania Clearances - Directions for Volunteers

Volunteers 18 years and older are required to obtain Pennsylvania Clearances. Please see the Clearance Application Directions for Volunteers page.

NOTE: If you have lived outside of Pennsylvania at any time within the past 10 years, then, even as a volunteer, you must apply for the Federal (FBI) Criminal History Report. College and military service count if you lived outside Pennsylvania.

Otherwise, as a Day Camp volunteer, you are not required to apply for the Federal (FBI) Criminal History Report. Please print and sign this Day Camp Volunteer Affirmation form and submit it along with your other clearance forms.





Required Pennsylvania Clearances - Directions for Paid Staff

All Staff personnel, except Summer Support Staff, are required to obtain and show current Pennsylvania Criminal Background Check, Child Abuse Clearance, and Federal (FBI Fingerprint) Criminal History Report clearances prior to the start of staff training week.

If you do not already have current clearances, you may use the links below to apply for them. Apply for your Criminal Background Check first, then your Child Abuse History Clearance, then your Federal (FBI Fingerprint) Criminal History Report.
