// WAIVERS//

For this trip, there are a handful of waivers that each student is required to have filled out. Six to be exact. Three of the waivers are in one file and can be accessed below with the “CLICK HERE TO PRINT DBC WAIVERS” button.
They are the:
(1) DBC Waiver and Release of Liability
(2) DBC Photo Consent
(3) DBC Authorization to Consent to Treatment of Minor & Medical Information**
These waivers are included in one file which can be accessed by clicking the “CLICK HERE TO PRINT DBC WAIVERS” button below and will be needed to be printed. The DBC Waivers can be turned in in advance to the trip OR turned in at check-in on Wednesday morning, June 6th (the first day of the trip). Either works for us! Of these waivers, the only one that does not need to filled out if you have completed in the past is the Photo Consent. The other two are event specific and will need to be filled out for this trip, regardless if you’ve filled them out in the past.
**Please note that the Authorization to Consent to Treatment of Minor requires a notary signature. We will have a notary at check-in for your convenience.
The other three waivers must be filled out online.
They are:
Please have these online waivers filled out by the end of the day June 6th (the first day of the trip). I do not need to be sent any receipt/proof that they have been completed. They just need to be done! Upon arrival, each place will check and make sure that each student’s waiver is in their data base, and if it’s not complete, they will not be able to participate in that activity. So please make sure you fill each one out! Even if you have in the past, please make sure to complete each one. If you have any questions, please using the contact form below.
