The municipality is responsible to obtain a report from the New York State Department of Social Services, State Central Register of Abuse and Maltreatment, which indicates that the Camp Director candidate has not been the subject of an Abuse and/or Maltreatment investigation.

A Camp Director candidate must submit the New York State Health Department form entitled “Prospective Children’s Camp Director Certified Statement Relative to the Conviction of a Crime or the Existence of a Pending Criminal Action.”  The State Health Department must make the determination that the Camp Director does not have a criminal conviction record for which there is a direct relationship between one or more of the criminal offenses and the applicant’s employment as a camp director.  A candidate shall not be employed as a Camp Director if such convictions would involve an unreasonable risk to the property or to the safety or welfare of camp participants or the general public.

The Minimum Qualifications and Special Requirements were taken from Chapter 1 of the New York State Sanitary Code, Subpart 7-2, Children’s Camps.  The Statutory authority is Public Health Law, Subsection 225.
