MEDICAL RELEASE FORMS AND VANDERBILT LIABILITY WAIVER FORM:
We must have a signed waiver form on file for each camper. These forms are available when you register for camp online.  Once you fill the forms out online, you will not be required to fill anything out upon checking in at camp.  All walkup registrants should be accompanied by a parent to sign these waivers. 

CAMPERS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE WITHOUT A SIGNED MEDICAL RELEASE FORM and A SIGNED RELEASE OF LIABILITY FORM.

INSURANCE AND MEDICAL CARE:
Professional certified trainers are available at all camp sessions. Each camper must be covered by his or her parent's medical insurance. A certified athletic trainer is on duty at all physical activities during the day. If your son is injured and needs to be taken to Emergency Care, we will attempt to contact you first. If we are unable to contact you immediately, your child's safety is our first concern and he will be taken to the proper medical facility.
