In the event of an emergency (injury, illness, unforeseen incident), I wish the following person to be notified in case I cannot be contacted:
As the parent/guardian of the above named minor, I have read the trip itinerary and I understand that there are risks of physical injury associated with participation in these activities. I request that my child be allowed to participate in these activities.
I authorize qualified emergency medical professionals to examine and in the event of injury or serious illness, administer emergency care to the above named minor. I understand every effort will be made to contact me to explain the nature of the problem prior to any involved treatment. In the event it becomes necessary for the sponsor staff-in-charge to obtain emergency care for my child, neither he/she nor the sponsor assumes financial liability for expenses incurred because of the accident, injury, illness and/or unforeseen circumstances.
