The Wilderness Center
Backpackers and Dayhikers Club
Backpackers' Trip Blanket Release Form

    As a participant in overnight trips, I am in physical, mental and emotional readiness for the rigors of the experience. As a participant in outdoor adventure sports, I realize that the fun of these sports holds certain hazards and inconveniences. I realize that I am dealing with the forces of nature and that I am dependent on myself alone to survive safely. I have adequately prepared and equipped myself for the challenges of such adventure. And deviation from equipment recommended by the trip leader is my decision, at my own risk.

    I hold harmless The Wilderness Center and the Backpacking Club, their officers, staff, and associates; the trip leaders; and fellow participants; from any physical, mental, or emotional injury which results from participating in a trip. I ask that all relatives, heirs, insurance carriers, and all others consider this document morally, if not legally, binding. I ask that they also hold harmless The Wilderness Center and the Backpacking Club officers, staff, associates; trip leaders; fellow participants; from any injury which results in participating in a trip.

    I agree that if the trip leader determines I am not prepared for the rigors of the trip, or that I am not properly equipped, then I will agree not to participate.
