Parent Camp Authorization Form
The parental consent form for a child’s camp gives an organization or individual the freedom of liability during the time of the trip. The party that is traveling will need to be aware of any health conditions that minor has as well as all emergency contacts in the chance that something goes awry or if a medical procedure is needed. The form is usually required for organizations in an effort to hold themselves harmless from any accidents during a the child’s stay at under their care.
