Child Protection - Campground Employees

Campground Employees and Families as Registered Children and Youth Workers

All field employees of the Community of Christ, including campground staff or employees of mission centers, are required to register as youth workers. Registration as a youth worker requires submission of a completed application and attendance at the Child Protection core training. 

Campground caretakers should be aware through their employment agreement of these requirements. The agreement, available through Legal Services, states:

Employees and any other person over the age of 15 years who lives on the campground premises must be certified Registered Children and Youth Workers or Assistant Registered Children and Youth Workers with the Community of Christ.

Remember

  • Employees and spouses are required to register as children and youth workers.
  • Minor children are the responsibility of their parents.
  • Adult children of the employee living with the employee are required to register as children and youth workers.
  • Campground caretakers who have minor children living with them must ensure those children are advised of and comply with rules and regulations.
