Junior Counselors are vital to the running of our camping session. However, we understand that some of you would like to take on more responsibility. You must be at least 16 in order to be a Counselor. If you wish to be a Counselor, please be aware that this includes you being responsible for a Camper for the entire session. You may be required to bathe, feed, change clothes and make sure medications are taken (with the help of the medical staff). The Camp Director Alicia Bryson is the only staff member that can or will assign you a Camper. Not everyone that wants to be a Counselor may be selected for that position. You will be advised upon arrival if you have been placed in the Counselor role.
PARENTS/GUARDIANS/PARTICIPANTS: Volunteering to be a Counselor is an immense responsibility and therefore is not something that should be entered into lightly. However, on balance, with greater responsibility comes a much more edifying experience. If you are confident of your child's ability to accept such a responsibility please acknowledge so with your initials/signature below.
I am assuming the responsibility as Counselor for a Camper assigned to me for the duration of the camping session. I release, absolve, indemnify, and hold harmless Camp Dream Foundation and its affiliates. In case of injury to myself, I hereby waive all claims against Camp Dream Foundation and its affiliates. I also acknowledge that all information provided in this application is to be kept confidential.
I release and waive any potential future claims against Camp Dream Foundation and its affiliates, employees, staff, and volunteers for any property damage and/or personal injury arising out of any activity connected with this camping session and/or use of camping facilities, including by way of example only and without limitation, transportation to and from events, use of facilities and equipment, and negligence of any person or entity.
Counselor Affirmation and Consent
I hereby acknowledge and provide my permission for the Applicant to be a Counselor. I understand that he/she will be subject to see or hear things that he/she may not be subject to in his/her everyday life as aforementioned herein (Diminished Capacity).
