Required Clearances


The required clearances must be obtained in order to host a Great Scots Summer Camp.

Criminal Record Checks and Child Abuse Clearances

To continue to provide a safe environment for campers, all camp employees and volunteers who will be working with minors must complete and provide PennWest Edinboro 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.

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