Registration Payment Agreement
The Summer Ministry Program operates on a payment schedule customized to fit the needs of individual families. Packages are nonrefundable, so if you choose a five day option but your child only attends 3 days, you cannot be credited or prorated for the other 2 days. The payment options are listed and explained below. Choosing and signing the agreement holds you financially obligated as we hire our summer staff based on registrations.
I, for myself and my minor child, hereby release representatives, volunteers, and owners for, from, and against any and all liability and responsibility whatsoever, for any and all damages, claims, or causes of actions that my minor child and I may have for any loss, personal injury, or death. In signing this agreement, I acknowledge and represent that I have read and understnad this agreement; that I am at least eighteen (18) years of age and fully competent; that I am the legal guardian of this minor participant. I have read and fully understand the Summer Ministry Parent Handbook, and I agree to all terms and conditions listed in the handbook and agree to abide by all the rules set by ECA's Summer Ministry.
The behavior policy is listed on the website. There are three levels of offense in which action will be taken by staff. If a child is asked to leave for the day 3 times, he/she will not be allowed to participate in the program. We do not accept any form of aggressive behavior or bullying - both physical or mental.
I give the Summer Ministry Program permission to use my child's photo or a video with my child's face on ECA's social media (Facebook, Instagram, Website).
I, the undersigned parent/guardian give my permission for my child to participate in scheduled activities of the Summer Ministry Program, and I understand that if my child is transported at any time in an ECEM vehicle, the driver will be in possession of proper licensing.
I release and discharge ECEM and it's authorized representatives and professional or volunteer staff, their heirs, executors and administrators from any and all liability of any kind which might be asserted in behalf of my child (minor) or to myself against the church, representatives, professional or voluteer staff, absent of gross negligence or willful and wanton misconduct. Finally, in the event of an accident or medical emergency if the said staff or representatives are unable to contact me as legal guardian, I hereby grant permission to said or representatives to administer necessary first aid, and/or take my child (minor) to the nearest medical facility or additional medical treatment.
I give my permission to the Summer Ministry Program for my child (minor) to particpate in field trips away from the facility. I understand that the facility will abide by all the safety rules when my child is transported in a vehicle. ECEM will also notify me each time that my child is to participate in an activity that would involve transportation.
I understand that NC state law requires all children who are not over the age of 8 or do not weight at least 80 lbs. must be restrained in a booster or car seat appropriate for the child's weight and height. I will provide the child restraint for my child on field trip days. I understand that if I do not do so, my child will not be able to attend the field trip.
The Summer Ministry staff will assist with the application of suscreen to bare surfaces including the tops of ears, face and bare shoulders, arms, feet and legs 20 to 30 minutes before participating in outdoor activity. Sunscreen will not be applied to broken skin or where a skin reaction has been observed. Any skin reactions observed by the staff will be reported to the parent/guardian.
