Requirements for Leaders, Volunteers and Staff Members Attending or Working at Summer Camp

Camp Resolute places the greatest importance on creating the most secure environment possible for our youth campers.

We are required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health regulations to obtain a CORI (Criminal Offender Registry Information) and a SORI (Sex Offender Record Information) check on all adult leaders, volunteers attending camp with your troop and camp staff.

Any adult leader or volunteer who will be providing leadership while they are in camp must have a completed CORI and SORI form on file with the camp regardless of the amount of time they are in camp.


CORI Request

The CORI request for for summer camp is different than the CORI request form you filled out to be a volunteer with the Knox Trail Council. Massachusetts camps are required to perform a CORI check that will result in the camp receiving all conviction, non-conviction and pending information in both the adult record (age 17 and older) and juvenile data. As this is a different CORI check being completed a different CORI form than the one you filled out to volunteer in Scouting is required.

The CORI regulations require that each leader, volunteer or staff member provide a government issued photo identification such as a driver’s license, passport, state identification, etc… and that a copy of the ID be kept on file with the camp.


SORI Request

Camp Resolute is also mandated by Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Public Health to obtain a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) report from the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB) for all camp staff or volunteers. The Sex Offender Registry Board is a public safety agency responsible for protecting the public from sex offenders.
