EMERGENCY AUTHORIZATION AND LIABILITY RELEASE:
This health history is correct so far as I know, and the camper described above has permission to engage in all camp activities except
as noted. I have familiarized myself with the camp program and events and understand that all activities are completely voluntary. I
recognize the inherent risk of injury in camp activities.
I understand that Camp Sawtooth has taken extensive safety measures, including the certification of its staff in first aid and CPR, as
well as making every effort to aid the safety of all camp participants. However, I also recognize that Camp Sawtooth cannot insure or
guarantee that the participants, equipment, grounds and/or activities will be free of accidents or injuries.
I am aware and have instructed my child in the importance of knowing and abiding by the camp’s rules and regulations and do release
Camp Sawtooth from all liability for any injury to the camper. I understand that transportation to and from camp (and any liability
thereof) is the responsibility of the camper, and not that of Camp Sawtooth.
I give permission to the Camp Health Care staff to (1) administer the camper’s routine medications, as needed, and over-the-counter
medications for minor illnesses or discomfort; (2) provide appropriate first aid for minor injuries; and (3) seek further treatment from local
physician or hospital if condition warrants.
In the event I cannot be reached in an emergency, I give permission to the physician selected by the camp director to hospitalize,
secure proper treatment for, and to order injection and/or anesthesia and/or surgery for the camper named above. This completed form
