I, the undersigned below, hereby affirm and agree that I am the participant ("Participant") or the parent or legal guardian of the participant listed on this registration form, a minor ("Minor"); that I am legally competent to sign this agreement and release; that I understand and have fully informed myself of this agreement by reading this in its entirety before signing; and that I have fully informed myself of and understand the details and risks of the Summer Conference prior to signing this release, including the Health and Safety Plans, as may be amended from time to time, and have discussed all applicable rules, requirements, practices, and procedures with Participant/Minor. I understand Participant/Minor will be asked to show proof of full and up-to-date COVID-19 vaccination prior to arrival at the Summer Conference; Participant Minor will also be asked to show a negative COVID-19 test result from within 24 hours prior to arrival at the Summer Conference. In consideration for allowing Participant/Minor to participate in the Summer Conference, I hereby agree, individually and on behalf of Minor, to release and to hold harmless Taiwanese American Foundation (TAF), its agents, officers, directors, employees, and independent contractors (collectively referred to as "TAF") from liability of any kind, for Minor's injury, death, or damage to or loss of Participant's/Minor's personal property, resulting directly or indirectly from their participation in the Summer Conference or from TAF's negligence. I personally assume all risks and liabilities in connection with the Participant's/Minor's participation in the Summer Conference and agree to indemnify TAF from any liability assessed against TAF as a direct or indirect result of Participant's/Minor's participation in the Summer Conference. This release includes all risks and liabilities connected with the Summer conference, whether foreseen or unforeseen. In the event that Participant/Minor is injured during the Summer Conference, and I am unable to provide consent for Participant/Minor medical treatment, I authorize TAF to consent on my behalf to the performance of any and all medical treatment judged necessary by TAF or trained medical personnel, until I am able to provide consent or until someone legally able to speak on my/Minor's behalf is made available. I agree, individually and on behalf of Minor/myself, to release, indemnify, and hold TAF harmless from liability which may be assessed against TAF as a direct or indirect result of said medical treatment. I agree to pay or arrange for payment for all costs associated with said medical treatment. Medical insurance information has been given to TAF.
I understand that TAF may take photographic or other electronic images (including video) of events and Participant/Minor at the Summer Conference. I hereby agree that all photographs, video, or other images obtained in any manner by TAF are the property of TAF. TAF reserves the right to use these images for any commercial or business purpose related to TAF. I hereby waive all rights to images and releases, reminders and forever discharges TAF from any and all demands, actions, causes of action, suits, damages, costs, profits or any other claims that may arise regarding any images or video of Participant/Minor or their use. I certify that this is my true signature or an electronic signature below.
The staff at the TAF Summer Conference will strive not only to provide fun and learning experiences, but also to stress respect for the environment and others. If a camper is found to be repeatedly interfering with the enjoyment of other campers or staff members, the TAF Director will intervene, reminding the camper of their responsibility to behave in an appropriate manner. The TAF Director may choose to enforce an appropriate disciplinary action (i.e. time out, a discussion, loss of free time, etc.) which is consistent with the philosophy of the camp and which supports the camper's dignity. Please review the rules with your child and make sure they are understood. We believe that you as a parent/guardian will appreciate knowing of any problem that your child may experience. TAF reserves the right to suspend or expel any camper from the program who poses serious continual discipline problems. If such behavior warrants it, an immediate suspension or expulsion may result. If we need to remove camper from program immediately, the parent will be notified. No refunds will be given.
