The Big Kid Contract
Why am I signing this? Like anything in life, Capital Camp has a few rules. And despite the old cliché, these rules are not meant to be broken. But, they also shouldn’t stress you out. The fact of the matter is that when you bring a group of people together who all have the resources to sue you, it’s a good idea to lay down some ground rules ahead of time.
Who does it affect? The contract is between you, the Guest, and us, the Camp. But the hope is that it helps all involved have a great time.
What does it say? Keep reading for the specifics, but the gist of the rules are: (1) don’t break stuff, (2) don’t ruin anybody else’s fun, and (3) take responsibility if you break the first two rules. More specifically: Part 1 says follow the rules on our website, don’t lie to us about your info, and tells you if and how you can get a refund; Part 2 says you assume the risks of going to Camp, you can’t sue us if something goes wrong (for the most part), and if someone else sues us because of something you do, you get to pay!; Part 3 lays out the specific rules and allows us to charge your credit card if you break them; Part 4 says the Event provides some really cool experiences that can only happen if Guests keep certain details to themselves, so don’t ruin it for future attendees by sharing what you shouldn’t; and, lastly, Part 5 says a bunch of stuff that most contracts say, including to check the rules again before you show up and that if you want to sue us you’ll get to make another trip to good ol’ Columbia, MO.
What now? Our lawyers really don’t like contract summaries like the one we just gave you (apparently neither do judges), so help them sleep a little easier tonight and keep on reading…
And now, onto everyone’s favorite part of going places and doing things, the contract legalese:
This Big Kid Contract (the “Agreement”) is entered into by and between Capital Camp, LLC (the “Camp”) and the undersigned Capital Camp registrant (“Guest”) (collectively, the “Parties”) and shall be effective as of Guest’s date of registration for the Event (“Effective Date”).
Purchase. By registering for the Capital Camp 2020 (the “Event”), Guest agrees to the terms of this Agreement and any other agreements found here. The terms of this Agreement may be altered by Capital Camp, LLC at any time prior to or during the Event by the posting of altered terms on the Terms and Conditions page of the Capital Camp website. By attending the Event (or continuing to attend the Event, as the case may be), Guest is acknowledging and agreeing to abide by such altered terms.
Guest Information. Guest represents that its registration information is true and accurate in all respects. In order to check in to the Event, Guest must present a valid photo ID and either (i) Guest’s ticket, or (ii) Guest’s confirmation email from Capital Camp, LLC, and the name on Guest’s photo ID must match the name on Guest’s ticket/confirmation email.
Cancellations and Refunds. Guest may cancel his or her registration subject to the following terms and conditions:
If Guest emails a refund request to firstname.lastname@example.org, Guest shall be entitled to a refund if and only if Guest is able to find a new attendee acceptable to Camp to take the place of Guest (a “Replacement Attendee”). Camp reserves the right to approve or disapprove of any Replacement Attendee, in its sole and absolute discretion, and Guest may not under any circumstance unilaterally transfer its ticket to a third party without the knowledge and consent of Camp. In the event Camp approves of a Replacement Attendee, Camp will provide the refund, less any applicable credit card processing fees, to Guest within thirty (30) days of receipt of Replacement Attendee’s registration payment.
If the Event is cancelled by Camp at any time and for any reason, each registered Guest shall be entitled to a full refund of the registration fee, less any applicable credit card processing fees, but any and all travel and other costs associated with attending the Event are not reimbursable by Camp and shall be the sole responsibility of Guest.
Assumption of Risk; Waiver of Liability; Indemnification
Assumption of Risk. Guest understands and acknowledges that certain portions of the Event involve significant risk, including the risk of serious injury and even death. Guest hereby agrees to fully assume all such risks without condition or limitation.
Waiver of Liability. In connection with the foregoing Assumption of Risk, Guest hereby agrees to release Capital Camp, LLC and its managers, officers, employees, agents, and representatives (each, a “Covered Person” and collectively “Covered Persons”) from any and all liability for injury arising out of any aspect of the Event, except for injuries resulting from intentional misconduct of a Covered Person.
INDEMNIFICATION AND HOLD HARMLESS. GUEST AGREES TO INDEMNIFY ALL COVERED PERSONS AND HOLD ALL COVERED PERSONS HARMLESS FOR ANY CLAIM, COST (INCLUDING ATTORNEYS’ FEES), EXPENSE, LIABILITY, OR LOSS OF ANY NATURE WHICH IS ASSERTED BY GUEST OR ANY THIRD PARTY RELATING TO OR ARISING OUT OF GUEST’S REGISTRATION OR ATTENDANCE AT THE EVENT. THE FOREGOING INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT SHALL NOT EXTEND TO ANY INJURY RESULTING FROM INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OF A COVERED PERSON.
