Parental Supervision Acknowledgment

Children under the age of 14 are not allowed to attend the Men Rewired Conference/Women’s retreat at Falls Creek. Children ages 14-17 may attend only if accompanied by a Parent or Legal Guardian. Some of the presentations given at the conference may not be suitable for children under the age of 14, and Falls Creek will not be providing staff to properly supervise children on the grounds of Falls Creek. Parents or Legal Guardians that do not provide proper supervision of the child during the conference may be asked to leave Falls Creek.

I am the parent or legal guardian of the minor participant. I will be attending (men’s/women’s conference) with the minor. I acknowledge that Falls Creek will not provide supervision at the conference for participants under age 18. I understand that I am solely responsible for the supervision and care of the above named minor while at the conference, and I will ensure that the minor child obeys all camp rules and follows instructions given by those in authority positions at Falls Creek.

I acknowledge that although Falls Creek runs background checks on its employees and volunteers, it will not run background checks or otherwise screen guests, participants, or guest speakers (“Attendees”) that will be at this conference. I also acknowledge that for this conference, Falls Creek does not ask churches or other parties to verify the suitability of any of the Attendees to supervise minors or otherwise be with, near, or around children.

My child, will be attending the Men Rewired Conference, 2020. Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center is managed and operated by the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (“BGCO”). In the event that my child should need emergency medical care or attention, the Host Church leadership, the BGCO or any of their agents or employees is hereby authorized to consent to the provision of such emergency medical care, including without limitation, medical, dental, surgical care, or hospitalization, to my child as is recommended or suggested by a physician, nurse, surgeon, or other health care professional.

If such emergency care is provided, I understand that my health insurance information will be given to the health care professional and that any expenses not covered by my insurance shall be my responsibility. I understand that the Host Church or the BGCO will not be obligated to pay either the health care professional or me for any medical expenses incurred.

There are instances when third party contractors are used to operate and supervise various events and activities. In those instances where third party contractors are used, I agree that neither the Host Church nor the BGCO is responsible for the action of these third party contractors. I further agree that neither the Host Church nor the BGCO is liable for the actions or activities of participants or sponsors participating in events or activities operated by third party contractors.

I understand that the risk of injury from any recreational activity is significant, including, but not limited to, the potential for permanent paralysis and death. While particular rules, equipment, and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious injury does exist. I knowingly and freely assume all risks, both known and unknown, even if arising from negligence, and assume full responsibility for my child’s participation in or observation of such recreational activity.

Furthermore, in consideration of my child being allowed to attend the Men Rewired conference, I, on behalf of myself and my child, hereby waive, and I hereby agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Host Church, the BGCO, their agents or employees, against any and all causes of action, rights, claims or suits which I or my child may have against the Host Church, the BGCO, or their agents or employees as a result of injury to my child, including, but not limited to: (1) injuries arising from my child’s participation in or observation of recreational activities at Falls Creek, and (2) injuries arising from the decision of the leadership of the Host Church, the BGCO, or any of their agents or employees to consent to the provision of emergency medical care to my child.

I understand that my child’s image may be included in a video or in photographs that may be made during camp. I understand that a promotional or highlight video may be available for sale during and after camp. I consent that my child’s image may appear on videos, promotional resources, camp endorsed web sites, etc.

I give authority and permission to the Host Church, the BGCO, and any of their staff or agents to inspect my child’s belongings while at Falls Creek.

I understand that Falls Creek is a place where many students seek counsel and advice from adult leaders, staff, counselors and others. I hereby consent to my child receiving spiritual and emotional counsel during their week of camp.
