Florida Summer Camp Background Checks
Florida Law requires all Summer Camp owners, operators, employees and volunteers that assist more than 10 hours per month comply with Level 2 Background Screening. Although summer camps are exempt from licensure, the Department of Children and Families is responsible for ensuring the background screening requirements are met. To process your Florida Summer Camp Background Checks for owners, employees and volunteers of your camp, we will need you to register as a provider at DCF Background Screening system. That way you can receive provider identifiers, ORI# EDCFSC30Z and OCA# numbers.
Just in 2014, IDENTICO screened more than 1,000 applicants and volunteers for Summer Camps throughout South Florida. Our summer client list includes, YMCA of Broward, Palm Beach and Treasure Coast counties, City of Dania and Hallandale Beach, JCC in Boynton Beach and Boca Raton, Belen Jesuit Wolverine Camp, Palm Beach Atlantic University, UM, Boys and Girls Clubs and myriad of major Summer Camps. Majority of them were served via Mobile Fingerprinting Services. Portable Live Scan units made it possible for us to provide Electronic Fingerprinting and Level 2 Background Screening services to summer camps in Broward, Miami, Palm Beach and Treasure Coast Counties. Travel fees are waived if group carries more than 15 applicants at single location. Relatively smaller groups are served reasonably with travel fees being at $50-$90/ location price range.
Due to DCF entering the Clearinghouse and FDLE retention being added a new rate for Summer Camp screening by IDENTICO is increased to $62.00/ applicant. Low price and convenience benefits are applied both at office and mobile sessions. Office is located at 3948 Pembroke Road, Suite E, Pembroke Park, FL, 33021. Applicants must provide two forms of picture ID and credit card or cash payment at screening, unless camp made an arrangement with us to cover the cost of screening. Processing is extremely fast, due to immediate submission of records to FDLE and FBI, so DCF Regional Background Screening Units may receive both statewide and nationwide screening results within 24 hours after submission.
