3) Character Reference Check (for all staff)
WHAT IS A CHARACTER REFERENCE CHECK? – A character reference check is a personal assessment of a staff applicant. The check is completed by someone the applicant chooses to provide information to camp administration about who they are as a person.
WHY HAVE A CHARACTER REFERENCE CHECK? - Reference Checks can provide camp administration with valuable insight to the integrity, character, background and personal qualities of a staff. This is especially important as Bethel is committed to providing a safe, nurturing and caring environment for all campers.
HOW MANY CHARACTER REFERENCES MUST BE COMPLETED – At minimum, each staff applicant must provide two references who may be contacted by the administration to determine whether you will be approved to serve at camp. Additionally, at least one of your references must complete a Character reference form and submit to camp administration prior to your approval as staff.
