Every one needs one to be able to work with children, especially in America. Does your Camp America Direct Page not have it on the list of things to do?

How did you get your Visa papers without a CRB?

CRB is nothing to do with Visa's. They don't ask for them. Camp America ask for them and the camp that hires you will ask to see it but you don't need it for a visa, its just a working visa not a working with children visa. I know a fair few people who have their visas but are still waiting for their CRB to come back

Didn't you fill one out at your interview? As others have said, it should also come up as one of the things to do on your CAD site.

The only people who might not need a new CRB check are returners who are going back to the same camp as last year. In that case, I think it's up to the camp whether or not they want you to have another CRB check done. Otherwise, you definitely need one and should contact Camp America.

Ah okay. Camp America refused to send my Visa papers without me sending them my CRB first. I didn't realise that wasn't the case for everyone.

I would definitely contact CA about it, returners have to have them done each year as well.

Yes, you should take the sheet in case your camp wants to see it. They might not, but it's better to have it with you and not need it than the alternative.

Yeh the sheet that CRB sent you back, the official looking one. You could photocopy it and take one to camp.
