Our screening process includes a mandatory background check for applicants who are 18 years of age or older. According to Chapter 435.04 of the Florida Statutes, all employees required by law to be screened pursuant to this section must undergo security background investigations as a condition of employment and continued employment which includes, but need not be limited to, fingerprinting for statewide criminal history records checks through the Department of Law Enforcement, and national criminal history records checks through the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and may include local criminal records checks through local law enforcement agencies.
You will be notified via email as to whether or not you have been selected for an interview. If you are local, we would love to have you come out and visit our camp site and interview you personally. If you are not local, we will contact you to schedule a telephone interview or a SKYPE interview at your earliest convenience. Candidates will be interviewed by our Executive Camp Director and Chief Operating Officer.
After your interview(s), you will be contacted via email as to whether or not you have been selected to join our Camp Idlewild Team. You will then be provided with the additional information that we need to collect before the start of Camp, i.e., W-4 Form - Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate, I-9 Form - Employment Eligibility Verification, etc. and conduct your Level 2 Background Screening. You will also be scheduled for online training to be completed before the start of Camp.
Please review our 2019 Summer Camp Season Dates one last time to make sure that you are available for the entire summer camp season as we will not be able to consider your application if you are not (advance notice is required for any days you are not available as stipulated in your online application).
Onsite Staff Training is Mandatory for all Staff and Volunteers!
