Parent and Guardian Commitment
I have read and understood the Pathfinder Club Membership Application and have signed that application on behalf of the minor named on the application. I understand that while participating in or attending Pathfinder functions the child is subject to the rules, guidelines, policies, instructions, directions, and orders of the Falcons Pathfinder club and its staff. I agree that I will not interfere with the Pathfinder staff in the conduct of its duties while participating in or attending such events with my child; I agree to this because I understand that to do so will undermine the purpose of the Pathfinder organization.
It is my right and duty to inform the senior staff or director of the Pathfinder club immediately should I observe action taken by any Pathfinder or staff that I believe to be inherently dangerous or potentially harmful or inappropriate.
I understand that the participation of my child in the Pathfinder club is “at-will” and the club or I may remove my child from the rolls of the Pathfinder club at any time. I understand that this will not disqualify my child from future participation in Pathfinders although there may be a specified period of time for temporary disqualification should it be deemed appropriate. I understand that if I remove my child from the Pathfinder club or my child is expelled by the club I am not entitled to any reimbursement of funds paid for joining the Pathfinder club.
I agree to assist the club according to those items delineated in the Pathfinder Club membership application and handbook. I further agree that my signature on the application is my contract to pay fees associated with the Pathfinder club and those fees must be paid as agreed unless waived by the Director or Treasurer as a result of my specific request for financial waiver or assistance.
I understand that if I seek a financial waiver or assistance the information I supply to the director will remain the property of the Pathfinder club. The Pathfinder club will use this information only for the purpose of considering my request for financial assistance and will not without my foreknowledge share this information with any other department of the church or outside entity public or private. I understand that in some cases as a result of financial accountability to the church Pastor(s), Treasurer, and/or board may be made aware of this information and that they will not use the information for any purpose other than auditing and will not share the information within the church or make the provided information public.
I understand that the medical information provided to the club during this process will remain confidential. The information will be carried on and to all outings and campouts and will be made available to any Pathfinder or conference medical officer or any medical or emergency professional in the case of an accident or emergency. The information will be shared with doctors and medical facilities as required for the treatment of injury or illness.
