AUTHORIZATION FOR HEALTH CARE
The following legal text is written in English for legal purposes. By signing this form I give my informed consent to the designated individual assigned by my group’s leadership to provide basic First Aid and comfort measures through standardized camp treatment procedures that may include the use of over-the-counter medications. Forest Home does not supply wheelchairs or crutches as my group has agreed to bring their own first aid personnel and have agreed to supply all first aid materials/services/medical transport for their group. I understand that it is my responsibility to make arrangements for myself/attendee with greater health care needs than what my group or the First Aid personnel can provide within their individual certifications, licenses, and scopes of practice or supply with equipment. I authorize Forest Home, Inc. to arrange for or provide any necessary related transportation to the nearest medical facility for urgent or emergency medical treatment if indicated, and I do assume all responsibility for payment for such treatment. I hereby give permission to the physician selected by Forest Home, Inc. to secure and administer any and all medical treatment deemed necessary for myself/my attendee, including hospitalization. This completed form may be photocopied for trips away from Forest Home, Inc. properties.

I realize that Forest Home is not generally advised for use by those with special needs, the disabled or those with needs related to walking on their own such as with crutches or wheelchair, that there are risks and dangers involved in such activities and that unanticipated and unexpected dangers may arise during such activities.
I have requested Forest Home, Inc. to allow myself/my attendee to participate in any and all activities that may include but are not limited to those outlined in the camp promotional materials and/or media. As a condition of receiving this benefit, I do hereby agree to the following: I understand that myself/my attendee’s participation in these activities can expose myself/him/her to dangers both from known and unanticipated risks.
I am willing to assume said risk of injury and/or complication of existing medical conditions to my person, my property, (or those of my attendee) that may be sustained on the occasion of the camp experience I (or my attendee) shall attend. I am aware that Advanced Life Support teams, should they be needed, are up to twenty minutes away from Forest Home property.
