Camp ARF Allergy & Medical Policies

Parents/guardians of Camp ARF participants will be required to sign waivers covering the following policies. 

Allergy Policy

ARF's facility contains allergens which may cause an allergic reaction whether by consumption, inhalation, or direct or indirect contact with skin.  These include, but are not limited to, food allergens (peanuts, peanut butter, dairy products, eggs, etc.) and pet allergens (dander, saliva, etc.).  Event participants, parents, and guardians concerned with allergies should be aware of this risk.  ARF does not assume any liability for adverse reactions to items one may come in contact with while at ARF.

ARF staff and volunteers are not trained to administer EpiPens.  To ensure that medication required for your child is administered as required, parents should make sure their child is trained in the administration of his/her medication(s).

Medication Policy & Authorization for Treatment

Parents must inform camp staff of any prescription or non-prescription medication your child will be self-administering during the hours they are at Camp ARF.

ARF staff is not authorized to administer medication; however staff can retrieve refrigerated medication for your child. Medication which does not require refrigeration can be kept in child's backpack.

Authorization for treatment: I hereby authorize ARF staff to provide basic first aid, NOT including the use of medication, for my child in the event of an emergency.  I authorize the medical personnel selected by ARF staff to order x-rays, routine tests, treatment, and necessary transportation for me/my child.  In the event I cannot be reached in an emergency, I hereby give permission to the physician selected by ARF staff to secure and administer treatment including hospitalization for my child as named above.

Tetanus Waiver

ARF feels it is important for all youth program participants to be current on their tetanus vaccination, particularly if they will be handling animals. If a parent or guardian has questions about the tetanus vaccination, he or she is encouraged to consult a physician, at his or her own expense, to decide whether or not to be vaccinated against tetanus.

I have read, understand and agree to the above. Furthermore, I release Tony La Russa's Animal Rescue Foundation from all responsibility that may occur because of my child not being vaccinated against tetanus. I understand that whatever decision I make regarding a tetanus vaccination is my own decision and is made at my own risk.

Rabies Waiver
