All parents must read and agree to the following terms and conditions prior to registering their child.
CONSENT TO TREATMENT, WAIVER, RELEASE AND CONDITIONS OF ENROLLMENT
Health Coverage: Each guest, including non-residents, must provide evidence of coverage under Ontario Health Insurance or equivalent. Non-residents will be charged for the costs of hospital out-patient visits [emergency room, X-rays, etc.]. If for any reason my child receives special medication or services beyond that furnished by Muskoka Woods Health Care Centre, I agree to pay for or seek reimbursement from my own insurance company for all such expenses. Non-residents agree to provide a Visa or Mastercard number to Muskoka Woods and/or the chosen Health Care Provider or Hospital for all medical charges.
Medical Treatment: I hereby give permission to the physician and nurses selected by Muskoka Woods Director to assess and give medical treatment, including prescriptions, when necessary to my son/daughter. In the event that a guest requires special medication, transportation, X-ray or treatment beyond that which is possible at the resort, the parents will be charged with the additional expense. In case of surgical emergency, I hereby give permission to the physician selected by the Director to hospitalize, secure proper treatment for and to order injection, anesthesia or surgery for my child as named above and will be responsible for any additional expense that may result from such services.
Liability: While every precaution is taken for the safety and good health of our guests, some sports and activities carry with them the inherent risk of personal injury beyond the risks associated with many of the recreational activities at Muskoka Woods. I understand and accept these risks and agree that by allowing my child to participate in those activities, he/she may be taking part in a recreational activity that presents the potential for personal injury. Also, while I understand that Muskoka Woods does its best to protect against exposure to nut products where there are allergies of which I have given written notice, I recognize that Muskoka Woods does not accept responsibility or liability and I hereby release Muskoka Woods for any illness or injury which may occur as a result of exposure by my child to any such food or other item to which my child has an allergy. By signing below, you are releasing the employees, Directors, Officers, and staff volunteers of Muskoka Woods, Gwitmoc Foundation, Muskoka Woods Youth Foundation, Inspiring Youth Foundation and the employees of facilities outside the resort grounds (the "Releasees") from any and all actions, causes of action, claims and demands resulting from any loss, injury or damage to person or property which has arisen or may arise from any and all use of Muskoka Woods including any programs or otherwise, including programs on Muskoka Woods property and programs/trips off property, notwithstanding that any such loss, injury or damage may have arisen by reason of negligence of the "Releasees". This release constitutes a waiver of legal rights and by signing below, you are also indicating that you have read carefully and understand the contents of this waiver and release.

Governing Law and Jurisdiction Agreement for Non-Residents of Canada: I hereby agree that the relationship and the resolution of any and all disputes arising therefrom between myself and the Muskoka Woods appointed Medical Doctor (as well as his or her agents, delegates or employees), including any issues related to this Agreement, shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Province of Ontario and the laws of Canada applicable therein.I hereby acknowledge that the treatment will be performed in the Province of Ontario and that the Courts of the Province of Ontario shall have exclusive and preferential jurisdiction to entertain any complaint, demand, claim, proceeding or cause of action, whatsoever arising out of the treatment. I hereby agree that if I commence any such legal proceedings, I will do so only in the Province of Ontario, and hereby irrevocably submit to the exclusive and preferential jurisdiction of the Courts of the Province of Ontario.
Dismissal and Behaviour: The Director reserves the right to dismiss a guest without a refund who, in his opinion, is a hazard to the safety or rights of others or who appears to him to have rejected the reasonable controls of the resort. I certify that I have no knowledge of any physical or mental impairment that would be affected by the named guest's participation in the Muskoka Woods program. I also give permission to the Director's of Muskoka Woods to search my child's belongings for items prohibited by camp, if suspected. I agree to reimburse Muskoka Woods for any intentional damage or defacement of camp property caused by my child. The Director also reserves the right, at any time up to the date camps starts to not allow attendance of the child if it is deemed in the camp's sole discretion in the best interests of the other campers. Refusing to allow a camper to come to camp could be as a result of health concerns such as an infectious disease or other medical/psychological reasons.
