Waiver and Release for Virtual Camp Michigania

Participant Acknowledgments

Virtual camp gives campers the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities and experiences, many of which have potential and inherent risks.

I understand and agree, on behalf of all campers in my group, including any minor children, to give permission for them to access Camp Michigania’s virtual camp platform to participate in large and small group activities. Camp Michigania has taken reasonable care, but cannot guarantee the following:

  • Following instructions for activities will not result in incident or injury
  • Live event monitoring of participant status
  • Security of online platforms used

I will not share Camp Michigania’s virtual camp log-in information with individuals outside my group. If my child is under the age of 12, I agree to have an adult nearby who is available during virtual camp. I will set up my child’s access to the internet/virtual camp in a place other than their bedroom. I will be aware of their background and what/who is visible. I release Camp Michigania from any responsibility for use of internet searches outside of camp channels. I agree to talk to my child about being online, such as safety, online searches, oversharing, and cyberbullying. (For some guidance, here’s some information from kidshealth.org)

General Release

I give permission for members of my group, including any minor children, to virtually attend Camp Michigania and participate in the scheduled program. I recognize the possible risk involved in online activity participation, including risks associated with online privacy, security, and invasion of privacy. The campers in my group, including any minor children, will hold harmless the Alumni Association and the Regents of the University of Michigan (and their employees and agents) for these risks as well as for incidents beyond the Camp’s control.

I give permission on behalf of myself, my group, and any minor children for photographs to be taken and used for publicity purposes by Camp Michigania, AAUM, or the University of Michigan, for purposes consistent with their mission.

Camper Expectations

Our hope is that Camp Michigania’s virtual platform provides campers a safe space to connect. For our virtual program to be safe, fun, and enjoyable for everyone, all campers are expected to act appropriately, including but not limited to respecting other’s views and opinions and using appropriate language. Camp staff reserves the right to remove campers from online programs if they are exhibiting behavior not acceptable at Camp Michigania.

I will contact the camp staff at michigania@umich.edu or 231.582.9191 if I have questions about this form before signing.

I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS “WAIVER AND RELEASE” AND FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS A RELEASE OF LIABILITY. I EXPRESSLY AGREE TO RELEASE AND DISCHARGE THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR CAUSES OF ACTION AND I AGREE TO VOLUNTARILY GIVE UP OR WAIVE ANY RIGHT THAT I OTHERWISE HAVE TO BRING A LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION FOR PERSONAL INJURY.
