Thank you for reading this Agreement carefully. It includes important information about Riverwood County Day Camp Inc. o/a Camp Riverwood, Camp Green Acres, All-Star Sports Camp Inc. o/a All-Star Sports Camp, Green Acres Outdoor Education Centre, Cedar Creek Riding Stables Inc. o/a Cedar Creek, Corporate Cowboys Inc., Green Acres Equities Inc. (hereinafter collectively referred to as ‘Riverwood’) activities and describes certain protection sought by Riverwood if you, your child, or another family member becomes ill or suffers some other loss due to infection of the CoronaVirus (COVID-19) and/or any Communicable Disease that may have been caused from being at Riverwood or from being exposed by someone else who was at Riverwood.
In consideration of the services of Riverwood, I, the Parent/Guardian listed in this application for for enrolment, acknowledge and agree as follows:
The activities of Riverwood include, but are not limited to, a variety of traditional sports, games, activities, crafts and events that may make it impossible to consistently implement social distancing that may be recommended by any known government authorities. Although Riverwood will make every effort to implement the guidelines in place by local government authorities and public health, Camp is a place where campers, counsellors, and staff are often in contact and near each other every day.
Prior to the start of each camp day, the parent/guardian will have to ensure that their child(ren) is in good health and is not exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 and/or any other Communicable Disease. Riverwood will have a student nurse and/or RN or RPN onsite at all times. Any child or staff that does not feel well for any reason should not attend camp and remain at home and the camp should be notified. Riverwood should be notified if any camper or staff is exhibiting symptoms of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and/or tests positive for same and/or is exhibiting symptoms of a Communicable Disease and/or tests positive for same. In such a circumstance, Riverwood will notify local public health authorities for further guidance and instructions. Campers and staff will be exposed to the risk of contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and/or possibly some other illness and/or Communicable Disease. Riverwood will remove activities that are not permitted under the public health guidelines (To Be Determined). The remaining activities though (sports, crafts and other arts, science, outdoor adventure) which are an integral part of the Riverwood experience still carry risks and/or the potential for spreading of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and/or a Communicable Disease. If eliminated, campers would be deprived of the opportunity for the growth and development which Riverwood and its campers and families expect.
