Olympics Hike

Gallagher Expeditions Olympic Hike - Acknowledgment of Risks
In consideration of the services of Camp Gallagher, I agree as follows:

Although Camp Gallagher has taken reasonable steps to provide Gallagher Expeditions campers with appropriate equipment and skilled guides so they can enjoy an activity for which they may not be skilled, Camp Gallagher has informed me that this activity is not without risk. Certain risks are inherent in each activity and cannot be eliminated without destroying the unique character of the activity. These inherent risks are some of the same elements that contribute to the unique character of this activity and can be the cause of loss or damage to my equipment, or accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases, permanent trauma or death. Camp Gallagher does not want to frighten me or reduce my enthusiasm for this activity, but believes it is important for me to know in advance what to expect and to be informed of the inherent risks. The following describes some, but not all, of the risks involved in this camping program:

  • TERRAIN IS OFTEN STEEP AND ROCKY MAKING HIKERS’ FOOTING LESS CERTAIN
  • ENCOUNTERING AND/OR AGGRAVATING NATIVE ANIMALS COULD RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH.
  • INSECT BITES COULD CAUSE IRRITATION AND POTENTIAL ILLNESS.
  • CAMPERS SUFFERING ILLNESS OR INJURY IN THE WILDERNESS ARE FURTHER FROM URGENT MEDICAL

I am aware that HIKING entails risks of injury or death to any participant. I understand the description of these inherent risks is not complete and that other unknown or unanticipated inherent risks may result in injury or death. I agree to assume and accept full responsibility for the inherent risks identified herein and those inherent risks not specifically identified. My decision to allow my son/daughter to participate in this activity is purely voluntary, no one is forcing him/her to participate, and he/she elecst to participate in spite of and with full knowledge of the inherent risks.

I acknowledge that engaging in this activity may require a degree of skill and knowledge different than other activities and that my son/daughter has responsibilities as a participant. I acknowledge that the staff of Camp Gallagher has been available to more fully explain to me the nature and physical demands of this activity and the inherent risks, hazards, and dangers associated with this activity.

I certify that my son/daughter is fully capable of participating in this activity. Therefore, I assume and accept full responsibility for all minor children in my care, custody, and control, for bodily injury, death, or loss of personal property and expenses as a result of those inherent risks and dangers identified herein and those inherent risks and dangers not specifically identified, and, as a result of my negligence in participating in this activity.

I have carefully read, clearly understood, and accepted the terms and conditions stated herein and acknowledge that this agreement shall be effective and binding upon me, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate and for all members of my family, including minor children.
