ASSUMPTION OF RISK:
Individuals with preexisting conditions such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease including asthma, diabetes, and immunocompromised are at an increased risk of severe illness if COVID-19 is contracted. I understand that any pre-existing illness increases the implied risk of COVID-19.
The health and safety of campers is a priority for GENEVA's. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, GENEVA has strengthened its standard cleaning procedures, while adding increased frequency measures for things such as wiping down common touch points, dining hall areas, and activity equipment. Additionally, GENEVA has taken measures to monitor and address symptomatic campers by temperature checks, and protocols to isolate, confirm, respond, and remove any camper or staff with suspected COVID-19.
GENEVA will adapt and adjust protocols and procedures in an effort to help keep campers, staff, and families safe. Ultimately, the choice for you and your family to attend summer camp at GENEVA is a personal one, and you are in control. If you are uncomfortable with the risks of COVID-19 in a summer camp setting or having a minor camper interact with GENEVA staff and other campers, you may request a full refund.
WAIVER AND GENERAL RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND HOLD HARMLESS:
In consideration for the opportunity to attend GENEVA and participate in its activities, I on behalf of myself and the minor camper for whom I am the parent or guardian waive and release GENEVA, its staff, board members, officers, directors, employees, volunteers, and agents from all liability of any kind arising from or related to transportation to and from and attendance at GENEVA or participation in its activities. I understand and agree that this release includes but is not limited to any claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of GENEVA, its employees, agents, and representatives, and whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any camp programs. This is intended to be interpreted as a broad, general waiver and release. I accept personal financial responsibility for any injury or other loss sustained by the minor camper or me during camp activities or during transportation to and from the activities, as well as for any medical treatment rendered to the camper that is authorized by GENEVA or its agents, employees, volunteers, or any other representatives. I further agree to indemnify and hold GENEVA, its staff, board members, officers, directors, employees, volunteers, and agents harmless from liability for all claims for personal injury, death, or property damage of any kind made by me, my family members, the minor camper for whom I am the parent or guardian or their successors, whether such injury, death or damage arises out of the acts, omissions or negligence of GENEVA, its staff, board members, officers, directors, employees, volunteers, or agents.
If a dispute over this agreement or any claim for damages arises, the matter is to be resolved through a mutually acceptable alternative dispute resolution process. If no agreement is reached on that process, the dispute must be submitted to a three-member arbitration panel for resolution in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. The location for any arbitration proceedings shall be in Ottawa County, Michigan. The laws of the State of Michigan shall govern the substantive rights of the parties. Such arbitration shall be final and binding. By agreeing to arbitration, the right to seek remedies in court, including but not limited to the right to a jury trial, is being waived. Any award issued in connection with the arbitration may be confirmed by any state or federal court of competent jurisdiction.
