Added: 5/18/2024
My/our consent is hereby given for Calvary Bible Church (hereinafter CBC), its staff, leaders, chaperones, counselors or other representatives responsible for the CBC ministries/group to consent to and obtain any and all medical, dental or other health care deemed reasonably medically necessary by a qualified health care professional(s) for my child in the event of any sickness or injury occurring to my/our said child while present and/or participating in the events and activities of said youth ministries/group. I understand that this form is valid to be used for any event during the period of exactly two years beyond the date I sign this release. I understand that in such event, while every reasonable effort will be made to contact me as soon as is practicable, such contact may not occur until much later. I also know that if any medical or insurance information changes that I need to notify the leaders in written form to add to this form. By signing this form, as parents we agree that our child: 1) May participate in any planned or reasonably anticipated activities of the youth group (e.g. C-Team, SWAT, Work Weekends, Sunday School/Basic Training, Overnight Retreats or other). 2) Has the physical abilities required to so participate. 3) Does not have any known but undisclosed physical, mental or emotional condition that would make his/her said participation unreasonable, dangerous, harmful or otherwise inadvisable for him/her.
I further authorize any medical facility to discuss my childs case and care in detail with the authorized representatives/leaders of Calvary Bible Church and its ministries/group, including the ministries checked above and the church office, so that you as a medical facility can assist them in treatment of my child.
