I hope you're having a great start to the month of June!
I have some online training I would like you to do prior to our training day on June 15 (More information coming soon about the 15th). There are two videos and a staff handbook to review, and then a short quiz I would like you to take. It will save us some time going through that information when we get together on the 15th!
You can access it here: http://www.kidsrocksummercamp.com/online-training.html
Here is an updated schedule, let me know if you have any questions! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1uT1OkRpMu0PuczYolTPDpKgYGeQN0SLgxsgk4_OokTs/edit?usp=sharing
I hope you have a great Sunday! Here is our schedule for pre-camp training:
June 15: 9:00-4:00 @ Cityside Middle School in Zeeland (New staff report at 8:00)
June 16: 8:00-4:00 @ Camp Locations
June 17: 9:00-?? Finish camp set-up if needed
I will provide lunch for you guys on both the 15th and the 16th. The 16th will be spent doing 2-3 hours of activity planning, etc. for the summer, and the rest of the day will be spent getting camp set-up and shopping for supplies. It is possible you could finish on the 16th, but if there is more work to be done then you may need to come in an finish on Saturday the 17th. These are all paid hours, of course.
Hey all, hope you're having a great May! Look for a few additional camp related emails from me as we start looking towards our training on June 15,16 and 17. I will get specifics to you on exactly what time we will be meeting, where, etc. soon!
This coming summer, we are getting our camp license through the state of Michigan. As a result of that, there are quite a few hoops that I am jumping through to file paperwork with the state. We will chat more about what licensing means for us at our training day... it mainly will be a lot of work on my shoulders to have different things documented, and not much for you to worry about!
With that being said, I do have a few things to ask of you.
1. Everybody over the age of 21 needs to do a central registry check with the state. (I'm not 100% sure what that means). However, you need to photocopy (or take a picture with your phone I imagaine would work) of your drivers license and fill out this form: http://www.michigan.gov/documents/lara/BCHS-Camps_001_Request_For_Central_Registry_Clearance_1_16_512618_7.pdf
-Once you have your license and the form filled out (you can even do it right online and save it as a pdf I believe), please upload those files via this link: http://cwok.me/u/5bd_
-Please save the file(s) with your first and last name!
2. Background Checks: I need to completely re-do all of my background checks again this year. https://goo.gl/forms/Pf1tnXXHzWWlItP42
3. Reference Checks: I need to get 3 new reference checks for all employees this year. Please understand that this is completely just jumping through hoops. I will not be even reading any of these. We basically just need to have 3 people give you a positive recommendation of some sort. Here is the link: https://goo.gl/forms/Pf1tnXXHzWWlItP42
For the rest of you, I have designed a very basic google form that you can have anyone fill out. A co-worker (not from camp), a family friend, someone from church, a friend, etc. It truly is just getting this crossed off the list. There is nothing they even need to write, they just check a couple boxes. Here is the form if you'd like to check it out: https://goo.gl/forms/fD2fRruxf4MukKHn1
Sheri will send you a google form to collect contact information of three references. She will then email them the form to fill out.
One other possibility would be if you have 3 letters of recommendation, you can upload them via this link as well: http://cwok.me/u/5bd_ Please save them with your name and letter of recommendation so that we can easily tell what it is.
4. Staff Health Form: We also need everyone to fill out this staff health form: https://goo.gl/forms/7fwVhFOAxkqGUpSl2
Thank you guys for your quick attention to these things! In summary, Items 1 and 4 you can start on right now, and items 2 and 3 above will just be a matter of filling out a google form you will receive from Sheri.
