As a Summer Camp employee, you are a Mandated Reporter

Being a Mandated Reporter means that you are required by law to report suspected cases of Child Abuse or Neglect. As a counselor, reporting suspected cases means immediately sharing any suspicions or information regarding neglect or abuse with your Site Director and Camp Executive Director, Emily Riedel. 

This guide will help you learn about recognizing signs of abuse, as well as the appropriate response should you suspect abuse, or should a child disclose information about abuse or neglect to you directly. 

At the end of this course you will take a quiz and, upon passing with a score of 100%, submit your scores.
