RELEASE OF LIABILITY  

Each United Methodist Camp and Retreat Center (“Camp”) offers a variety of services and voluntary activities designed to enrich the camping experience. These services and voluntary activities may include, without limitation, the provision of food, lodging and transportation, as well as the sponsorship of challenging and educational activities often associated with camping and the outdoors, such as hiking, archery, swimming, campfires, ropes courses, Beach activities, crafts and the like. Both campers and staff members (including volunteers) may have the opportunity to participate in one or all of these activities. 

While each Camp will endeavor to assure the safety of its campers and staff members, there are unavoidable risks of injury—and even death—associated with camping and its related services and activities. Consequently, a properly executed Release of Liability is required before anyone may attend a Camp as either a camper or a staff member. Such a Release of Liability is set forth below. If you are a prospective camper or staff member under eighteen years of age, one of your parents or your legal guardian must print his or her name below and then sign and date the line designated “Parent or Guardian of Minor Camper or Staff Member.” If you are a prospective camper or staff member eighteen years of age or older, you must print your name below and then sign and date the line designated “Adult Camper or Staff Member. “You are encouraged to consult an attorney if you have any questions about the meaning of this document. In addition, you are encouraged to contact Fel Cao at 916-374-1515 or email to felc@calnevumc.org  if you have any questions about the services or activities provided at any Camp.
