Facilitated Activities at Camp Allendale
Camp Allendale provides facilitated activities that can include Archery, warm-ups and group initiative/team building problems, low ropes course elements, rock climbing at our Climbing Tower, swinging on our Giant Swing, and zipping on our Leap of Faith zip line. The level of participation in a facilitated Camp Allendale activity is at all times completely up to the individual’s choice. There is a risk, which must be assumed by each participant, that he or she may suffer an emotional or physical injury. Bruises and scratches are not uncommon.
Wearing weather-appropriate clothing as well as proper shoes is vital to each participant. Those who do not have closed heel and toe shoes will not be allowed to participate in activities.
Camp Allendale’s policy for participation in any facilitated activity requires that every participant have health/accident insurance coverage or assume the cost of any medical intervention. In addition, certain health/medical information must be made available to Allendale. This information will be held in confidence.

I acknowledge and assume the responsibility to follow the directions of the staff or facilitators during these activities. I understand all activities are presented as "Your Challenge, Your Choice" and that my participation in any such activities is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks. I am also able to limit my participation in activities as I see fit. If at any time during an activity I want to stop, it is my responsibility to inform my facilitator.
Before participating in any activity, I agree to assess my medical, physical and emotional condition, and based upon such assessment I will decide whether any such condition could interfere with my safety in any such activity, in which case I will decline to participate.

I declare I am not now under the influence of any alcohol and/or drugs and I will not be under the influence of any alcohol and/or drugs during my participation of activities at Camp Allendale. I recognize that if my group is going to be participating in the Leap of Faith zipline, I am under the weight limit of 260 pounds.
By participating I agree to assume - and bear the costs of - all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any condition I may have and by my participation in the activity. I hereby waive, release, and discharge Camp Allendale, its staff, facilitators, and Board of Directors, from any and all liability, action, claim and damages, of every kind and nature. This waiver and release shall be construed broadly to the maximum extent under applicable law in the state of Indiana. My signature on this document shall bind my next of kin, heirs, representatives, administrators, successors and assigns on my behalf.
