Emergency Contact Information
On March 11, 2020, The World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus,
COVID-19, a pandemic. COVID-19 is highly contagious and is believed to spread mainly
from person-to-person contact. As a result, federal, state, and local governments and federal
and state health agencies recommend social distancing and have, in many locations,
prohibited the congregation of groups of people over the past several weeks. Rapidan
Baptist Camp and Conference Center (the “Ministry”) has put precautions in place to
reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, the Ministry cannot guarantee that you or your
family, including your child(ren), will not become exposed to or infected with COVID-19.
Further, because of the number of individuals involved in summer camp and the fact that
many infected individuals appear to be asymptomatic, attending this activity could
increase your and your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.
By signing this waiver, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and
voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I may be exposed to or infected by
COVID-19. I also acknowledge that by attending Rapidan Baptist Camp and Conference
Center, such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, disability, and/or
death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at
Rapidan Baptist Camp and Conference Center may result from the actions, omissions, or
negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Ministry employees,
contractors, volunteers, members, and participants and their families.
I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility
for any injury to my child(ren) or myself (including, but not limited to, personal injury,
disability, and death), illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense of any kind that I or
my child(ren) may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at the
Ministry or participation in Rapidan Baptist Camp and Conference Center (“Claims”). On
my behalf, and on behalf of my children, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and
hold harmless the Ministry, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from the
Claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind
arising out of or relating thereto. I understand and agree that this release includes any Claims
based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of the Ministry, its employees, agents, and
representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in
