I understand there are numerous risks associated with participation in any camping activities, including trips, slips, scrapes, bruises, broken bones, and falls from a height (horseback, rock climbing, or other activity), drowning, and even death. Many, but not these risks are inherent in these and other activities that my camper participates in through Girl Scouts of Colorado.
Equipment used in the activity may break, fail or malfunction, despite reasonable maintenance and use. Some of the equipment used in activities may inflict injuries even when used as intended. Persons using equipment may lose control of such equipment and cause injury to themselves and to others.
Counselors, volunteers and guides use their best judgment in determining how to react to circumstances including, but not limited to, camper injury and evacuation, car accident, and incidents with non-Girl Scout users. The counselors and guides may misjudge such circumstances, an individual's capabilities and the like.
These are some, but not all, of the risks inherent in camping activities; a complete listing of inherent and other risks is not possible. There are also risks which cannot be anticipated. I give my permission for my camper to participate in all camp activities, including those described above. I acknowledge and assume the risks involved in these activities, and for any damages, illness, injury or death resulting from such risks for myself and my camper.
