Parents-On-Duty (POD) information

Overnight/ExplorAsian Program POD Schedule

(Please note, the following changes have been made on the POD for 2020.)

NECYSC is a unique camp in that we are primarily run by volunteers. We require parents of campers to volunteer during camp week to assist with many essential and important tasks that will help maintain and run the operation of the camp smoothly and safely. Your participation is not only crucial contribution to the success of the NECYSC but also it gives you a glimpse of your child(ren)'s camp life.

The NECYSC requires one POD shift for EACH camper but two POD shifts per family at the maximum. If your family has more than 2 campers, you only need to complete 2 POD shifts. Sign up will be available on April 30, 2020.

POD is optional for the Day camp and CIT Programs, although we strongly encourage parents to help out. Please contact us if you are a parent of the Day camp or CIT program, and interested in volunteering during camp week. Your help is greatly appreciated.

CORI/SORI Information

Massachusetts state law requires that NECYSC, like all youth summer camps, collect information from all volunteers at camp. That information includes full name as it appears on a state-issued ID (like a driver's license or passport), date of birth, and the last SIX digits of the volunteer's social security number. This information is used for the sole purpose of the Criminal Offender Registration Information (CORI) and Sex Offender Registration Information (SORI) background checks, to safeguard our campers. For more information, please visit the following sites:

Required CORI and SORI forms are included in the appropriate application packet.

NECYSC reserves the right to reject POD or staff due to CORI/SORI findings.
