Required Clearances



          In order to host a camp at Edinboro University, the required clearances must be met in order to ensure the safety of attendees.

          Criminal Record Checks and Child Abuse Clearances

          Clearances are required for all camp employees and volunteers who will be working with minors. Our goal is to make everyone’s experience on campus a safe and pleasurable one.

          In an effort to continue to provide a safe environment for camp groups, all camp employees and volunteers who will be working with minors must complete and provide Edinboro University with a copy of the clearances listed below annually, prior to your arrival on campus.

          The background checks generally take three to six weeks to secure, so please plan accordingly.

          For more information on these clearances, please refer to the Department of Public Welfare, or contact Pablo Reyes.

          When programs are serving children ages 18 years of age or younger, the User shall provide certification as indicated in the contract agreement as evidence that all adult employees and adult volunteers of the User who have direct programmatic interaction with minors during the program shall have satisfactorily completed all PA State Police Criminal record checks (SP4-164) 7-2009 and PA Child Abuse History clearances (CY113). 

          The criminal records check must be completed first. Allow for two to three weeks processing. This report must then be attached to the Child Abuse History Clearance request form. Allow for an additional two to three weeks processing time. 

          Employees and/or volunteers who are not Pennsylvania residents must provide evidence of a satisfactory FBI background check dated within the past year.
