Diminished Capacity Waiver

Camp Dream is designed and intended to accommodate campers with mental and physical disabilities. Due to their diminished capacity, campers can be unpredictable. Campers will occasionally engage in conduct which may be considered rude, vulgar or socially inappropriate. This type of behavior may cause staff members and volunteers to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed and/or offended. While Camp Dream tries to minimize these types of incidents, it is impossible to eliminate them completely.

I acknowledge the specific risk of being exposed to conduct that I find offensive, rude, vulgar or otherwise beyond the norms of society. By signing this application and agreeing to volunteer at Camp Dream, I expressly assume the risk that Campers may engage in such conduct. In consideration for being allowed to volunteer at Camp Dream, I release and waive any potential future claims against Camp Dream, its employees and staff, including volunteers, that may arise due to the actions of campers during the sessions chosen herein above.

By signing and dating below, I give consent and acknowledge all of the above stated policies.
