Terms and Conditions
By authorizing the participant to attend Bot Camp programs, the parent/guardian agrees to the following terms and conditions:
1) Registration Information. The information we collect is confidential and used to aid our staff, the Camp Director and instructors in assessing crucial information regarding the participant. Please note that Bot Camp is committed to respecting the privacy of our members, their families, and our employees, by adhering to the privacy principles set forth in Schedule 1 of The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.
2) Participant Information. Upon registration, we ask that you provide us with any and all information regarding your participant that will help Bot Camp foster a positive experience at camp. We request the parent/guardian provide current information for least one emergency contact person. All information is kept confidential and is never shared or sold to a third party.
3) Participation. You agree to certify that the named participant/attendee is physically able to participate in all activities, including sports, games, computer instruction, and that you know of no restrictions, physical impairments, or any other factors, which in any manner may limit his/her participation in such a program. If participant should need to be restricted from any activity, you must inform Bot Camp with specifics. Further, you certify that, unless otherwise specified, the participant has permission to participate in all camp activities led by Bot Camp staff.
4) Medical Release. There are times when illness or accident may occur and immediate surgical or medical attention is necessary while participating in Bot Camp activities. This is your permission for the leader in charge, or designate, to make arrangements for qualified surgical or medical attention for your child/ward in the event of an emergency without necessity of your prior approval. You understand that you will be notified by the quickest means possible if this authority is exercised. Parent/guardian gives permission to Bot Camp to arrange necessary related emergency transportation for the participant/attendee. Parent/guardian agrees to release any medical or personal records necessary for insurance purposes. You acknowledge that you are responsible for medical expenses and related emergency transportation due to your son/daughter/ward’s illness or injury.
5) Medication Management. You also agree that no one at Bot Camp is authorized to give any participant over-the-counter medication without permission. In most cases, our camp personnel are not professional nurses or doctors, and have not been trained in medicine. Participants needing injections (insulin, hormones, etc.) will be required to self-administer their medication. Parents/guardians are asked to make Bot Camp aware of any known allergies, and if necessary, you are responsible for bringing an EpiPen to camp. You agree that it is the responsibility of all parents/guardians to retrieve their participant/attendee’s medication from the camp staff at the end of the session. All medication(s) that are left behind will be disposed of at the end of the session. Should Bot Camp dispose of any medication pursuant to this policy, Bot Camp will not be responsible for any damages or liabilities related in any way to such medication, including, but not limited to replacement cost of the medication and any damages resulting from participant’s failure to administer such medication.
6) Special Needs. Bot Camp is not a special needs camp; however, we will make every effort to accommodate special needs participants to the best of our abilities as long as the requests are made within a reasonable time and are within our standard policies. If your child/ward has special needs, please let us know how our camp can help the child/ward have the most positive experience possible. Our instructors have been trained to recognize and accommodate needs that do not require an outside facilitator. If your child/ward requires an outside facilitator in the classroom, a background check must be processed for that outside facilitator at your expense. You will allow at least (14) business days prior to the start of camp to process your request and perform the background check. Meals are not provided for the outside facilitator. The outside facilitator must be over age 18 and should not be the guardian or an immediate family member. It is crucial that parents/guardians provide us with all relevant information so that we can make sure that our staff are fully aware of any needs. Once the course begins, and your child is at Bot Camp and it proves to be not the most well suited program, all tuition and fees are non-refundable per our cancellation policy that applies to all students. You agree and acknowledge that upon observation of the participant at the Bot Camp program, if it is determined by the Camp Director that the program is not a suitable and/or productive environment for your participant, Bot Camp may dismiss the participant and no refund will be issued. Bot Camp will exhaust every opportunity for an excellent relationship with each and every participant, but in some rare cases Bot Camp may not be a compatible environment for every participant. If parent/guardian removes a special needs participant from the program, you will not be eligible for a refund.
7) Dismissal for Inappropriate Behaviour. Bot Camp has the right to dismiss any individuals if their actions or attitudes are deemed detrimental to the general atmosphere of the camp without prior warning and that there shall be no refunds issued for such dismissal. For example, participants may be dismissed for drug/alcohol/tobacco possession/use; viewing pornography or any inappropriate material on the internet; inappropriate language (swearing, using bad words, racial slurs); physical violence or threats of physical violence against other participant or Bot Camp staff; damage to facilities or Bot Camp equipment, stealing property of others; inappropriate use of equipment; sexual harassment of other participant/attendees or Bot Camp staff; internet hacking; or bullying. If use or possession of illegal substances or weapons is suspected, participant will be subject to search and seizure. If use or possession of illegal substances or weapons is found, participant will be dismissed from camp immediately. Participant/attendee (and therefore parent/guardian) is responsible for any personal items brought to and loaned at camp. Participant promises to respect all Bot Camp staff members and participants while treating the facilities and equipment with care.
8) Personal Devices. We do NOT require students to bring any devices to Bot Camp, though we do understand that parents would like to be able to communicate with their children. Should the participant bring a personal device to the program, please note: (a) personal devices may NOT be used during instructional times, unless the Instructor approves them; (b) we recommend that personal devices be stored in the participant’s backpack/bag; (c) cell phones/smart phones can be kept on hand but must be in silent mode during instruction; (d) Bot Camp does not facilitate internet access for non-Bot Camp devices; (e) viewing inappropriate content (including sexual content, inappropriate violence, racism, bullying, etc.) online will result in immediate dismissal from camp, without a refund; (f) any attempts at computer “hacking” will result in immediate dismissal from camp, without a refund. Local authorities will be contacted when warranted; and (g) Bot Camp is not responsible for any lost or stolen personal items.

If any theft of or damage to participant’s property should occur at camp, or in association with the camp, you agree that Bot Camp will not be held responsible.
