The City of Cincinnati and the Parks Department (together “Parks”) have created new protocols and put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19; however, Parks cannot guarantee that you or your child(ren) will not become infected with COVID-19. Further, attending any program may increase your child(ren)’s risk of contracting COVID-19.


By signing this agreement, I acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19 and voluntarily assume the risk that my child(ren) and I and other members of my household may be exposed to, or infected by COVID-19 by attending the Parks program, and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and death. I understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at the Parks program may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to, Parks employees, volunteers, and program participants and their families. I understand that, based on the inherent natures of children and children’s activities, it is likely impossible to prevent all potential sources of transmission of COVID-19 despite all reasonable efforts of the Parks.

I voluntarily agree to assume all of the foregoing risks and accept sole responsibility for any injury to my child(ren), myself, or members of my household including, but not limited to, personal injury, disability, and death, illness, damage, loss, claim, liability, or expense, of any kind, that I or my child(ren) or members of my household may experience or incur in connection with my child(ren)’s attendance at the Parks program. On my behalf, and on behalf of my child(ren) and members of my household, I hereby release, covenant not to sue, discharge, and hold harmless Parks, its employees, agents, and representatives, of and from any and all claims, including all liabilities, claims, actions, damages, costs or expenses of any kind arising out of or relating thereto as a result of my child(ren)’s attendance at the Parks program. I understand and agree that this release includes any claims based on the actions, omissions, or negligence of Parks, its employees, agents, and representatives, whether a COVID-19 infection occurs before, during, or after participation in any Parks program.
-I am 18 years or older
-I hereby release and save harmless the Cincinnati Board of Park Commissioners and its employees from any and all liability for any injuries, loss, or other claims arising out of this camp and its program.
-In the event I cannot be reached in an emergency, I hereby give permission to the medical personnel selected by the camp director to administer treatment, including hospitalization, for my child as named above.
-I give permission for my child to be photographed and for his/her picture to be used without identification or compensation in Park publications.
-Camp fees are non-refundable and cannot be reduced for partial attendance. If a registered child cannot attend, you can DONATE your spot by calling 321-6208 . We will provide you with a donation letter.
-In the event that a camp session is either cancelled or postponed, Cincinnati Parks will make every effort to contact every patron via e-mail, time permitting. While we regret the inconvenience caused by these circumstances, Cincinnati Parks cannot be held responsible for any cost or damage such postponement or cancellation may incur. All patrons purchasing from Cincinnati Parks must do so in the light of the above limitations.
