It is understood that a fee may be charged for building use, plus the additional expense incurred by the school for either additional cleaning needed or for custodial expense if the event takes place when the school normally does not have such personnel on duty. Organizations wishing to use the kitchen facilities must have a school lunchroom person on duty during period of kitchen use.
Organizations using school facilities are to be responsible for insuring that no damage, misuse of the building, or equipment, is tolerated, and that the rooms are cleaned and placed in order. All organizations must supply sufficient adult supervision for the facilities requested. Each building principal will stipulate the regulations and supervision required for this building.
Certificate of Insurance
A certificate of insurance naming Camden Central School District as an additional insured on a primary, non-contributory basis is required for all organizations. The certificate must be approved by the District prior to use. The minimum general liability limit required will be $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 aggregate, unless additional exposures are presented based upon the use by the Organization. It is recommended that any group that involves minors should have the sexual abuse and molestation coverage in addition to the regular general liability coverage. The certificate must be attached to the building use form. School sponsored events do not require additional insurance policies; however AED Certified Staff must be present.

Time of Use Conflicts
It is the policy of the Camden Central School District’s Board of Education that school facilities may be used by residents for activities that are educational, cultural, social, recreational, or civic in nature and conducted primarily for the benefit of district residents. However, if there is a conflict between a requested community used and school sponsored activity, the school sponsored activity will be granted use of the requested facility.
