Church leaders, please ensure that each adult sponsor that will be attending camp as part of your church group watches the mandatory videos below and completes the mandatory testing.
Please read the manual and watch each video. After discussing each section with your sponsors, administer and score the test. Those who score a passing grade can receive their certificate. Each Adult Sponsor will be required to bring their scored, completed test and certificate with them to camp. We will be collecting these items during registration/check in. Child Protective Training Certification is valid for 2 years.
