Background Check FAQ
Why are background checks mandatory?
For the safety of our campers and volunteers, we background check all of our volunteers who work with children. There are no exceptions to this policy.
What do I need to fill out on the form?
Fill out the top section of the form only. The following information is required:
- Date of Birth
- Previously Used Names
- Mailing Address
- Physical Address
- Contact Phone Numbers
- Social Security Number
- Driver’s License Number
- Physical Description
- Applicant Signature
Who will see my background check report?
Only the co-directors of the camp are authorized to review and file your background check information. All information will be kept confidential and only be used to verify that you do not have any crimes against children. The co-directors of the camp are Amy Stocks and Hillary McDaniel.
Is there a cost?
Yes. There is a $15 processing fee assessed by the state of Utah. This fee is non-refundable through RRCFG-SLC. If you cannot afford to pay the fee, please email us immediately and we can discuss options. You will also need a stamp to mail your background check report to RRCFG-SLC.
I can’t get it done before the deadline. What do I do?
E-mail us immediately. You cannot volunteer with us without having a criminal background check completed.
Do I have to do this every year I volunteer?
Yes - we need an updated form every calendar year.
I live outside of Utah. Where do I go to get a background check?
E-mail us ASAP if you need instructions on obtaining a background check outside of Utah.
What if I don't pass the background check?
We will notify you and handle the issue confidentially. We are only looking for violent crimes or crimes against children - other minor offenses will be simply ignored.
