WVA CAMP: GUARDIAN WAIVERS
By marking agreement on the registration form as the legal guardian and/or caregiver of a participating child (the ‘Camper’), I confirm that I have READ, UNDERSTOOD, and AGREE to the following statements:
Risk of injury is inherent in all physical activities. I am aware that the Camper will be given the opportunity to participate in physical activities during the program and that the Team will take reasonable steps to identify, reduce and remove potential risks. Team members have authority to take necessary and reasonable actions to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all Campers and the Team. If the child becomes ill or injured while attending the program, minor first aid can be administered, or medications provided as per the consent given on the registration form.
I, or the listed ‘emergency contact’, will be contactable on the mobile number I provided for the duration of the Camp and will pick up the Camper if this is requested.
I understand that as part of the programs policies, my child will not have their mobile phone on or accessible during the Camp and that if I need to make urgent contact with my child, I will use one of the WVA contact numbers available.
I release, indemnify, and hold harmless OAC Ministries (including the Team) for any damage to or loss of personal property incurred by and/or caused by the child.
I release, indemnify, and hold harmless OAC Ministries (including the Team) for any personal injury suffered by and/or caused by the child.
COVID INFORMATION & DECLARATION
The prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic is unlikely to have subsided by the time of the WVA Camp in Jan 2022. If OAC and/or the Camp Directors believe that running the Camp may pose a risk the health or safety of the Campers, Team members, or local communities, the Camp will be cancelled, and fees refunded or transferred to the next Camp to run.
Due to the rapid rate of change to conditions during the pandemic, we have chosen to leave the possibility of cancellation open right up to a few days before Camp.
Campers and their parents/guardian’s should be aware that gathering with other people, even with precautions, may lead to an increased risk of infection in a pandemic. By registering and attending WVA Camp you are accepting any additional risk that may be associated with COVID-19.
As part of OAC’s response to the pandemic, Campers or Team members fitting any of the following conditions will NOT be allowed to attend WVA Camp and MUST contact WVA as soon as they become aware of the issue in the 14 days prior to Camp:
- symptoms of COVID-19,
- having been in direct contact with any infected person, a primary contact, or visited known exposure sites in the 14 days prior to Camp,
- having travelled overseas or been in close contact with an international traveller in the 14 days prior to Camp,
UNLESS – they have a negative COVID test result from within 3 days of the start of Camp.
In the event of a confirmed case at/during the WVA Camp, we will follow government authority’s advice.
By marking agreement on the registration form as the legal guardian and/or caregiver of a participating child (‘Camper’), I confirm that:
• I have read and understand the possibility of cancellation due to COVID-19,
• I agree to meet the conditions mentioned in COVID Information above when allowing my child to attend,
• I understand the additional risks of the pandemic, and I indemnify and hold OAC Ministries and its representatives harmless for any infection, transmission, or health issues relating to COVID-19 at or following the WVA Camp.
