Welcome to summer staff at Camp Highland!

Before we can get to the fun parts of camp, serving kids and sharing Jesus, we need to first take care of a few mundane tasks. There are a lot of details here, so please read carefully!

First, there are two forms in your staff account that you'll need to finish:

  • Employment Contract
  • Medical History Form

The employment contract is simple to complete; it just requires your signature, but the content is important so please deeply consider what you're committing to this summer before signing. The hardest part of the medical history form is the insurance information (locate a coverage letter/card before you start), so please have that handy before sitting down to complete the form.

The following 3 forms will be accessed using the button below:

  • Direct Deposit Information
  • IRS W4
  • Georgia G-4

They have all been consolidated into a single online form and you'll need to gather a good bit of information to complete it. Relevant instructions are in the form, but here are some tips:

  • Direct Deposit Information
    • If you don't have a check (that you can write VOID on in big letters), you can call your bank to get a letter that verifies your information for direct deposit; they'll know what you're asking for.
  • IRS W4
    • If this is the only job you'll have this year or you otherwise won't make very much money, chances are you'll be exempt from federal income taxes so you can write "exempt" on line 7. If you need taxes withheld, follow the instructions to calculate your exemptions. Either way, check with your parents or tax advisor on this if you have any questions.
  • Georgia G-4
    • Unlike federal taxes, there are a couple more hoops to jump through to be exempt from state taxes so chances are you're not exempt. An "allowance" is a count that determines how much in taxes is taken out of your paycheck. The more allowances, the less is taken out. If you get too much taken out this summer (which could happen by choosing 0 allowances, for example), you'll get the extra back after filing taxes at the end of the year. If too little is taken out (by taking a higher number of allowances), then you could have to pay the state at the end of year to make up the difference. If you have no idea what any of this means, are a typical single, no kids, not married, have a permanent residence with your parents, they still claim you as a dependent and you might not make any more money this year, then choosing "1" exemption is probably a safe choice.

IMPORTANT NOTE: After you've completed all the required fields in each of the forms from the button below, you'll be asked to enter your name and email address. If you don't do this within a couple minutes, the system will time-out and give you an "access denied" message. In this case, the form has been submitted and we've received it so you don't need to do it again.

Finally, you'll need to complete the i9 form once you arrive at camp. Please download it, read the instructions, and come to camp with a copy of whichever pieces of documentation you need to complete the form. We need to verify those docs in person, so please don't forget to include those things in your packing list when you come to camp.

It helps us a great deal to make sure we have everybody's forms if you can make sure to enter that information in a timely manner so please do the above forms as soon as possible. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you soon!
