Camp Workers Subject To Background Checks In N.H.
Workers at specialized summer camps will be required to undergo criminal background checks in New Hampshire under a new law that takes effect Jan. 1.
Assistant Safety Commissioner Earl Sweeney says the change closes a loophole in the laws requiring people who work with children to undergo the checks.
The new law will require owners, employees and volunteers who may be left alone with children at summer sports, science, art and other camps to have the checks, which have long been required for teachers, coaches, volunteers and others at schools.
