Camp directors have criminal background checks on to-do list

The Associated Press

CROYDON, (AP) — As the summer camp season opens, new state rules require paid and volunteer workers at "skills" camps to undergo criminal background checks.

The rules also require workers under 18 who spend more than three consecutive days with children at both traditional and skills camps to obtain two letters of reference.

The rules stem from legislation passed in 2013 to expand background checks to skills camps — those that offer instruction in specific activities including sports, music and art.

State Rep. Donald LeBrun of Nashua said he co-sponsored the legislation after hearing about a rash of molestation charges at camps nationwide.

Camps that violate the law face a fine of up to $2,000 for each offense.
