In consideration for permitting my child(ren), wards, or relatives (hereinafter “Camper(s)”) to participate in STEM Summer Camp (hereinafter “Camp”) hosted by MakerState and Student Union (hereinafter “MSSU”), I voluntarily agree, for myself, my heirs, executors and administrators to the following:
MEDICAL AUTHORIZATION AND WAIVER:
In case of emergency and I cannot be reached, I authorize MSSU, its agents and employees to contact and secure, if necessary, medical attention for my child. In connection with any injury Camper(s) may sustain or illness or other medical conditions Camper(s) may experience during his/her/their participation in or attendance at the Camp, I authorize any emergency first aid, medication, medical treatment, or surgery deemed necessary by the attending medical personnel if I am not able to act on Camper(s)’s behalf. In the event that I cannot be contacted in the event of an emergency, I further hereby grant MSSU permission to administer immediate treatment and/or take Camper(s) to a hospital emergency room via ambulance/emergency vehicle. I agree to assume all liability for any expenses incurred in such an emergency (transportation, hospitalization, x-rays, etc.). I also understand and agree that MSSU will notify me if Camper(s) becomes ill during camp hours, and I will arrange to have Camper(s) picked up immediately from Camp.
On behalf of Camper(s), I accept and assume any and all risks associated with his/her/their attendance and participation in the Camp and all related activities. I understand that Camper(s) should not attend the Camp if he/she/they are not in a healthy condition and able to do so. Permission is granted to MSSU to take Camper(s) to parks and other locations outside Camp facilities. Furthermore, I do hereby verify that Camper(s), to the best of my knowledge, is free from contagious disease, is fully immunized, and is able to participate in the Camp. Therefore, I hereby confirm that Camper(s): (1) has no psychiatric, medical, and/or physical condition or history which would prevent him/her/them from participating in the Camp and/or endanger himself/herself/themselves or others at the Camp; (2) has not been instructed by any physician to refrain from participating in the Camp or similar activity; and (3) is physically fit and able to participate in the Camp.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK/WAIVER OF LIABILITY:
Participation in the Camp involves a risk of injury due to certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries, examples of which are as follows (but not limited to these examples): contact with other individuals in the classroom, contact with other individuals playing games, contact with the floor/ground, walls, chairs, desks or equipment which are part of the classroom and lunch areas. The specific risks vary from (1) minor injuries such as scratches, bruises and sprains, to (2) major injuries such as eye injury or loss of sight, joint or back injuries, heart attacks, and concussions, to (3) catastrophic injuries including paralysis and death. I understand that if I have questions about possible hazards, it is my responsibility to seek additional information from the Camp management prior to signing this waiver. I agree to assume these risks.
I, on behalf of Camper(s), assume all of the foregoing risks, including, but not limited to, the risk of any negligence by other Camp participants or by MSSU, and its respective owners, partners, directors, officers, employees, and agents, and the risk of injury caused by the condition of any real or personal property, facilities, or equipment used during the Camp, and accept personal responsibility for any injury (including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, dismemberment, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense (including reasonable attorneys’ and professionals’ fees), of any kind or nature, that Camper(s) or I may suffer arising out of or in any way connected with the Camp or Camper(s)’s participation in or attendance at the Camp. I understand that these risks may result from the actions, negligence, and failure to act of Camper(s) and others (including, but not limited to, other participants in Camp, and the organizers, employees, staff, counselors, and volunteers, if any, of the Camp) and the condition of any real or personal property, facilities, or equipment used during the Camp.
I covenant not to file suit against or otherwise sue MSSU. I waive, release, and discharge MSSU and the various schools or facilities that host the Camp, and anyone working on their behalf from any and all liability, claims, actions, demands, expenses, attorney’s fees, breach of contract actions, breach of statutory duty, or other duty of care, warranty, strict liability actions, and causes of action whatsoever, that I might now have or may acquire in the future, arising out of or related to any loss, damage, or injury, including death, that may be sustained by me, or to any property belonging to me, while participating in the Camp.
I, on behalf of Camper(s), hereby release and forever discharge and agree to indemnify and save and hold harmless MSSU, Camp facility partners, the respective owners (direct and indirect) and each of their respective parents and affiliated and subsidiary companies, volunteers associated or affiliated with the Camp, and each of the aforementioned respective officers, owners, partners, directors, officials, employees and agents, and the other participants in the Camp, of and from any and all injuries (including personal injury, disability, dismemberment, and death), illness losses, damages, claims, liabilities, or expenses of any kind or nature (and whether accruing to me, Camper(s), my heirs, or my personal representatives) that are caused or alleged to be caused in whole or in part by the action, negligence, or failure to act by any Released Party or condition of any real or personal property, facility, or equipment of any Released Party, and that arise out of or are in any way connected with any aspect of the Camp or Camper(s)’s participation therein or attendance thereat.
I give permission for photographs and videos taken of Camper(s) while participating in the Camp to be used in the promotion of Camp and MSSU.
Should Camper(s) have missing attendance for late arrivals, early departure, vacations, or illnesses, no full or partial full refunds will be issued.
Should Camper(s) intentionally harm another participant, intentionally do harm to self, or exhibit signs of illness, I shall promptly retrieve Camper(s) when contacted by MSSU to do so, or, if I am unable to do so, notify MSSU of the person retrieving Camper(s) on my behalf. I acknowledge and agree that no part of the fee paid will be refunded to me should Camper(s) be dismissed from the Camp. I also understand and agree that no reduction or prorate in the fee will be made for late arrivals, early departures, vacations or illness.
Programs and locations are subject to change due to total Camper(s) enrollment.
SEVERABILITY OF PROVISION:
If any provision of this waiver document is held unenforceable in a judicial or arbitration proceeding, such provision shall be severed and shall be inoperative, and the remainder of this waiver shall remain operative and binding on the parties.
I have carefully read the entirety of this liability waiver and release. I agree to all its terms and conditions. I understand that by selecting “ACCEPT”, I am signaling that I have read, understand and agree to the terms outlined above.
