VOLUNTEER GUILD: Information, Registration and Informed Consent Form
I wish to volunteer my services (or approve my child doing the same) to The Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run, Inc. (the Farm). I understand the nature of the volunteer activities that are to be performed by me or my child may involve physical activity, contact with unidentified and unfamiliar persons, tools and equipment as well as farm animals and may involve other potential risks of injury.
Knowing this, I still wish to volunteer and hereby assume the risk, with respect to any liability of the Farm for such risks of any accident or injury to person or property, which I or my child may sustain in connection with my (his/her) participation as a Farm volunteer. In addition, I hereby release and discharge the Farm and all of its directors, officers, employees, partners, affiliates, agents or successors from any and all liability or responsibility for any such accident or injury. I have (or my child has) health insurance coverage, which would cover any accident or illness, and I understand that the Farm will not be responsible for any medical expenses, which I may incur as the result of my activities as a Farm volunteer. Furthermore, failure to disclose medical conditions and/or prescribed medications before volunteering can be grounds for dismissal from any program and the Farm grounds.
Understanding that the Farm is an organization involved in providing educational programs to adults and children, I hereby affirm that I have never been convicted of a violent crime, child abuse or neglect, child pornography, child abduction, kidnapping, rape or any sexual offense, nor have I been ordered by a court to receive psychiatric or psychological treatment in connection therewith.
I understand that failure to cooperate with the Farm staff and abide by the rules and standards of the park will result in forfeiture of the right to participate as a Volunteer of the Farm. I recognize that children must remain with their parent/guardian or their supervising adults at all times while on Farm property. I authorize the non-commercial use of any photographs, film, recording or video tape to publicize the Farm.
