Due to rapid spreading of the COVID – 19 virus and acknowledging my desire to bring no harm to others, I affirm to the best of my knowledge I am healthy without any symptoms of illness which might be transmitted to others. Should I or those with whom I am camping develop symptoms of illness, I agree to promptly leave Camp Avalon Spiritual Nature Retreat (hereafter “Camp Avalon”). While on the grounds of Camp Avalon I will observe the CDC and Arizona guidelines set forth in the Rules & Regulations. My initials show my agreement: (initials)

I also waive the benefits of any state, federal or local laws which may allow protection against unknown or unanticipated claims, damages, liabilities or other actions, whether contractual, tortious or statutory in nature.
