Camp Deans are required to do a face to face training once every 4 years or if they are a new dean. The training is available every year. The 2018 Dean Training was held on Saturday, March 3rd. A video of the training is available by clicking 2018 Dean Training.
Safe Sanctuary Screening
The Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church (OKUMC) is committed to safe camp experiences for all our campers. As a volunteer or member of one of our camps, you are being called to undergo background screening to ensure that you, too, are committed to creating safe communities of faith.
This training is designed to be completed by all 2018 adult leaders who will be working at our camps. It is self-paced and contains a completion quiz at the end, and will self-record the participant’s contact information for our records.
