Liability Waiver

I understand and acknowledge that participation in events or programs operated or conducted by The Growing Up Club (“The GUC”), including all of its activities and the use of its facilities and equipment, involves an inherent and unavoidable risk of injuries, harm, and loss. I understand that although the The GUC takes reasonable precautions to provide proper organization, supervision, and equipment, there are numerous risks associated with participating in the The GUC’s activities, including, but not limited to, the use of playgrounds and participation in sports and active games, play with clay, gardening and community service. Equipment used in activities may break, fail, or malfunction and cause injury. Some of the equipment used in activities may cause injuries even when used as intended. These are some, but not all, of the risks inherent in The GUC activities; a complete listing of inherent risks is not possible and some risks cannot be anticipated.

I authorize the child/children named in this registration to participate in the The GUCs and all activities operated by The GUC. On my own behalf and on behalf of the child/children named in this registration, I ACKNOWLEDGE THE RISKS associated with participation in The GUC and expressly and voluntarily assume the risks of participation in The GUCs and activities operated by The GUC and HEREBY WAIVE AND RELEASE ALL CLAIMS, DEMANDS, ACTIONS, CAUSES OF ACTION, COSTS, LOSSES, EXPENSES AND LIABILITIES (“CLAIMS”) (WHETHER ON BEHALF OF THE CHILD/CHILDREN NAMED IN THIS REGISTRATION OR FOR MY OWN BENEFIT) AGAINST THE GUC (INCLUDING ITS STAFF, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS) THAT MAY ARISE FROM INJURIES, HARM OR LOSS RESULTING FROM PARTICIPATION IN THE GUCS AND ACTIVITIES OPERATED BY THE GUC, INCLUDING (WITHOUT LIMITATION) ANY CLAIMS ALLEGING NEGLIGENCE BY  THE GUC (INCLUDING ITS STAFF, EMPLOYEES, AND AGENTS), to the fullest extent allowed under the laws of the state or jurisdiction in which The GUC, program or event where your child/children attend or participate is located. If any aspect of this waiver is deemed to be invalid, I acknowledge that the remainder of the agreement will continue to have full force and effect. If my agreement on behalf of my child/children to release any Claims against The GUC is deemed invalid for any reason, I agree to indemnify, defend and hold The GUC harmless in connection with any Claims arising out of my child’s/children’s participation in The GUCs, programs, events and activities operated by The GUC, including payment of reasonable defense costs incurred by The GUC.

I hereby authorize the staff of The GUC to act according to their best judgment in any situation requiring medical attention for the child/children named in this registration. I understand that it is my responsibility to provide medical insurance coverage for the child/children named in this registration while they are attending The GUCs operated by The GUC and to provide accurate and complete medical information. I attest that all immunizations for the child/children named in this registration that are required by their school or local school district are up-to-date. I acknowledge that the costs of any medical treatment provided to the child/children named in this registration that are not covered by medical insurance will be my sole responsibility, consistent with the waiver of Claims above.

The GUC reserves the right to expel or to deny re-enrollment or participation of any child/children if, in The GUC’s sole and absolute discretion, (i) the actions of a child/children or their parent/guardian disrupt, impede or interfere with The GUC’s ability to maintain a positive and constructive relationship with all participants and their parents/guardians (including but not limited to non-payment of The GUC fees), (ii) such actions threaten the safety of the child/children, other children, or The GUC staff, (iii) such actions otherwise interfere with The GUC’s accomplishment of its mission, or (iv) if expulsion or refusal to re-enroll would be in the best interest of the participants or The GUC. The GUC will make every attempt to communicate with the child/children and their parent/guardian regarding any actions that would put a child/children at risk of a pause in enrollment, expulsion or denial of re-enrollment. If, in its sole and absolute discretion, The GUC decides to expel or refuse enrollment or participation to a child/children, any fees paid for unused days, if applicable, would be refunded.

As to any child/children who are enrolled in a program operated by The GUC, I agree that the The GUC (including its staff, employees and agents) can take and use photos, video and audio recordings of the child/children named in this registration for the limited purposes of marketing The GUC which may be publicly available on the internet, without compensational obligation, and I hereby release The GUC (including its staff, employees and agents) from any Claims resulting from their use of photos, videos and audio recordings (Please note: if you want to understand why we seek your consent for this or to request that we do not publicly use photos, videos and/or audio recordings featuring your child/children, please contact

Further, I acknowledge and agree that the child/children and myself and any co-parent or co-guardian, are not allowed to take, and shall not take, any photographs, video, or audio recordings of other children or other parents/guardians participating in The GUCs, events, or programs without their express consent, and are not allowed to transmit, upload, or post such content online or electronically including on any social media or similar site, or use or publish such content in any non-personal media such as a book, video, film, television program or publicly viewable website. Upon The GUC’s request, I agree to delete and/or remove such content from any device, site, platform, or other media, if, in The GUC’s sole and absolute discretion, such content and/or the manner in which it is presented violates the terms of this agreement, is objectionable, inappropriate, or violates the privacy rights or right of publicity of others.
