Camp Forms

Here are all the forms you need to attend Wayfinder camps and off-season events.

Please note the “One Day Event Emergency Contact form” is not needed for any summer camps. The Meningitis Response Form is only needed for Advanced Camp.

New this summer for Overnight camps: a “Child Health Assessment Form” from your doctor is required. (This form is called different things in different doctor’s offices. It just needs to say your child is well enough for camp.)

  • PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT, RELEASE AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK

    In consideration of the services of The Wayfinder Experience, Inc., their agents, owners, officers, volunteers, participants, employees, and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (hereinafter collectively referred to as "WFE"), I hereby agree to release, indemnify, and discharge WFE, on behalf of myself, my spouse, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate as follows:

    1. I acknowledge that participating in capture the flag, dodgeball, jousting, basketball, wiffleball, swimming, hiking, theater or any camp or party related activities entails known and unanticipated risks that could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to my child, myself, property or to third parties. I understand that such risks cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. In consideration of me or my child being permitted by WFE to participate in its activities and to use its equipment and facilities, I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless WFE from any and all claims which are brought by, or on behalf of my child, and which are in any way connected with such use or participation by my child.

    The risks include, among other things: Moderate physical activity; drowning; slipping and falling; the hazards of walking on uneven terrain; falling objects; water hazards; accidental drowning; collision with other people, equipment, manmade or natural obstacles, or fixed or movable objects; exhaustion; strains, sprains, broken bones and musculoskeletal injuries including head, neck, and back injuries; cuts, abrasions, and bruises; cardiac related illness; exposure to temperature and weather extremes which could cause hypothermia, hyperthermia (heat related illnesses), heat exhaustion, sunburn, dehydration; and exposure to potentially dangerous wild animals, insect bites, and hazardous plant life; the negligence of other visitors, participants, or other persons who may be present; inclement weather; my own physical condition, and the physical exertion associated with this activity.

    Furthermore, WFE employees have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but they are not infallible. They might be unaware of a participant's fitness or abilities. They might misjudge the weather or other environmental conditions. They may give incomplete warnings or instructions, and the equipment being used might malfunction.

    2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.

    3. I hereby voluntarily release and forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless WFE from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, which are in any way connected with me or my child’s participation in this activity or use of WFE equipment or facilities, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of WFE.

    4. Should WFE or anyone acting on their behalf, be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.

    5. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have.

    6. In the event that I file a lawsuit against WFE, I agree to do so solely in the state of New York, and I further agree that the substantive law of that state shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of law rules of that state. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining document shall remain in full force and effect.

    7. By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation in this activity, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against WFE on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein. I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.
