During the event, you will have many opportunities to share, listen, pray, and hang out with young people. Please begin to pray for these opportunities now; they can help change a person’s life.

POLICY AND PROCEDURE MANUAL and VULNERABLE SECTOR CHECK (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY)
Read the following carefully. *
At the top of this page there is a link to our new Staff Policy and Procedure Manual. It is a 28 page document that MUST be read by all staff before the start of camp. We understand that this is a long read, however it is important and mandatory for this to be read as it exists for the safety of our campers and to protect you, our staff. Appendix B, on page 22, has a declaration that you need to print, sign, and submit by July 31. These can be submitted by hand to Simon Weresch, Jordan Kimmerle, Jahvon Baccas, or Kira Fifield. Alternatively, they can be mailed to: Warden Full Gospel Assembly Attn: Kira Fifield 2210 Warden Avenue Scarborough, ON M1T 1V6 Additionally, as a volunteer working with children and/or youth under the age of 18, you must do a vulnerable sector check with the police department of the city/town/region that you live. Many jurisdictions will do Volunteer Vulnerable Sector Checks for free, however some jurisdictions have a cost. (Please note that volunteer vulnerable sector checks are cheaper than job vulnerable sector checks. This is the one you should do.) You must take action to do this ASAP, as some jurisdictions take up to (and sometimes more than) 5 weeks to get this done. (IF YOUR JURISDICTION REQUIRES A FEE, PLEASE KEEP YOUR RECEIPT TO BE SUBMITTED TO BPNG ADMIN FOR REIMBURSEMENT.)
I understand that I must open and read the Staff Policy and Procedure Manual in its entirety, and that I must submit the Volunteer Declaration (Appendix B) by July 31, 2019. *
Upon acceptance as a volunteer staff, I understand that I must, and agree that I will, take action as soon as possible to get my Volunteer Vulnerable Sector Check done and that failure to do so will result in a loss in my eligibility to be a BPNG staff for Youth Camp 2019. *
