Acknowledgement of Risk & Assumption of Personal Responsibility
Pope Memorial SPCA staff members and volunteers make every effort to conduct safe programs, to orient and support children, and to inform families of inherent risks. Some activities may involve risks that children do not routinely encounter at home.
I understand that program activities may include, but are not limited to; playing active games, being near shelter animals and hikes through Audubon trails.
I acknowledge that such risks exist, and I hereby agree on behalf of my child to assume such risks. Further, on behalf of my child, I hereby release and forever discharge, and agree not to sue, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless, Pope Memorial SPCA of Concord-Merrimack County, and it officers, directors, employees, and volunteers and each of them, from and against any and all liabilities and obligations of every kind and description, which I shall or may have against them or any one or more of them arising out of, or in connection with, my child’s participation in the Pope Memorial SPCA program and activities, including, but not limited to, sickness or death caused by the COVID-19 virus or any other communicable disease, or for any personal injury or loss of personal property that my child may suffer while participating in Pope Memorial SPCA program and activities, excepting in the case of gross negligence by Pope Memorial SPCA.
I understand that the COVID-19 virus is an extremely contagious virus that spreads easily through person-to-person contact. The Center for Disease Control and the New Hampshire Department of Public Health authorities recommend social distancing, face coverings, cleaning and sanitizing procedures, and small group sizes to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The COVID-19 virus can lead to severe illness, personal injury, permanent disability and death. Participating in Pope Memorial SPCA programs of accessing Pope Memorial SPCA facilities may increase the risk of contracting the COVID-19 virus. All Pope Memorial SPCA camp staff and volunteers have been trained to follow all appropriate and state and federal mandated guidelines to prevent contracting of the COVID-19 virus.
I understand and agree, on behalf of my child, that my child shares the responsibility for safety during Pope Memorial SPCA programs and activities, and I personally assume on behalf of my child that responsibility. I understand and certify that my child’s participation in Pope Memorial SPCA program and its activities is completely voluntary, and that I have become familiar with the program activities in which my child may participate, as described in the Agreement of Terms.
I, the parent/legal guardian of the named camper, have read, understood, and agree to the Acknowledgement of Risk & Assumption of Personal Responsibility release and to its terms and conditions.
