Kids & Critters Waiver


I agree to keep my child home from camp if he/she exhibits any symptoms of COVID-19 or has tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 10 days. Boulder County Public Health lists the following symptoms as possibilities for COVID-19: new or worsening cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, temperature 100.4 °F or higher, feeling feverish, chills, fatigue or weakness, muscle or body aches, new loss of smell or taste, headache, gastrointestinal symptoms (abdominal pain, diarrhea, vomiting), feeling very unwell. Children have been more commonly reported to have abdominal symptoms, and skin changes or rashes.
I understand the risks associated with in-person gatherings with regards to the spread of COVID-19. I acknowledge that Longmont Humane Society shall not be responsible for the transmission of COVID-19 between camp attendees, and I release Longmont Humane Society from any and all liabilities with respect thereto. Longmont Humane Society will be taking safety precautions prior to and during all camp sessions, including frequent sanitizing and enhanced cleaning measures.
I understand that, if in the judgment and sole discretion of the Deputy Director, my child is unable or unwilling to follow the guidelines for safe animal interaction or, if my child’s conduct is endangering or could endanger animals, staff, campers, volunteers, employees, or the Longmont Humane Society patrons, then my child will be asked to leave and I will be notified. Under these circumstances, no refunds will be made. I have explained these guidelines to my child and my child understands these guidelines and the behavior expected.
I acknowledge and understand that Longmont Humane Society (LHS) does not know the complete history of the animals at LHS and the animals’ behavior may be unpredictable. I release and discharge LHS from any and all responsibility for any injuries that my child may receive as a result of being at LHS, including, but not limited to, bites and scratches. On behalf of my child, I hereby release, discharge, indemnify and hold harmless LHS, its officers, directors, agents, servants, insurers, and employees (collectively, the LHS Parties) from any and all claims present and future and rights to compensation that may arise from or relate to (1) any act or omission of LHS Parties (other than intentional misconduct) and (2) any damage, loss, illness, injury or death (including animal bites and scratches) sustained by my child during, in connection with or arising from, my child’s participation in the Kids & Critters Camp. I intentionally and knowingly waive any and all such claims that I may have against such persons and I reserve only and do not waive or release claims for intentional misconduct. This Release will be binding and enforceable against me, my child, and our personal representatives, successors and assigns with respect to my child’s participation in the Kids & Critters Camp.
On behalf of my child, their heirs, personal representatives, and executors, I agree that LHS may use any photographs, videos, or other images taken at Camp for use in public relations efforts with the full understanding that no compensation or other payment of any kind will be paid to participant or to any other person for any of the agreements contained herein.
I will have my child at Kids & Critters Camp at 8:30am each morning and pick him/her up at 12:30pm every day. Due to the nature of the business of LHS, I understand there is no supervision for campers after 12:30pm. I understand that there will be a charge of $1/minute for every minute that I am late. If there is anyone that should NOT pick up my child after camp, I will inform the Deputy Director, Cliff Cullen, in writing.
