I am aware that the activities planned by Call of the Wild entail certain inherent risks and dangers. These include, but are not limited to, the hazards of traveling in mountainous, desert, and other terrain, and they include the risks of injury or illness in remote places, absence of medical facilities, injury by forces of nature, and accidents during transportation by any means.

In consideration of, and as part payment for, the right to participate in such mountain trips and other activities, and the services and provisions provided for me by Call of the Wild, I hereby accept and assume all of the above risks, and I hereby release from liability and agree to hold harmless Call of the Wild and its owners, leaders, guides, agents, and employees for any claims, liability and loss and causes of action which I now have or which may arise in the future as a result of my participation in any Call of the Wild activity. This release is to be binding on me, my heirs, executors, and all members of my family.

I hereby authorize Call of the Wild and its employees, guides and leaders to take any steps necessary for the administration of emergency medical or dental care and for rescue operations. Call of the Wild is authorized to secure, at my expense and risk, said rescue operations and emergency hospital or medical care or treatment.

I understand that Call of the Wild reserves the right to take photographic or film records of any of their trips, and hereby agree that Call of the Wild may use any such photographic or film records for promotional and/or commercial purpose.

I have read the foregoing application, Hold Harmless Agreement, Assumption of Risk, and Authorization to Medical Authorities as well as the Refunds and Cancellations policy and the current brochure which I acknowledge having received and which forms a part of this agreement, and I understand the full meaning of each, and agree to each.

Your Signature:


In consideration of the services of Call of the Wild, their agents, owners, officers, volunteers, participants, employees, and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (hereinafter collectively referred to as "CW"), I hereby agree to release, imdemnify, and discharge CW, on behalf of myself, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representative and estate as follows:

1. I acknowledge that hiking, camping, and backpacking entail known and unanticipated risks which could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity.

The risks include, among other things: Slipping and falling; falling objects; water hazards; exhaustion; exposure to temperature and weather extremes which could cause hypothermia (heat related illness), heat exhaustion, sunburn, dehydration; and exposure to potentially dangerous wild animals, insect bites, and hazardous plant life; equipment failure, and improper lifting or carrying.

Furthermore, CW employees have difficult jobs to perform. They seek safety, but they are not infallible. They might be unaware of a participant's fitness or abilities. They might misjudge the weather or other environmental conditions. They may give incomplete warnings or instructions, and the equipment being used might malfunction.

2. I expressly agree and promise to accept and assume all of the risks existing in this activity. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.

3. I hereby voluntarily release, forever discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless CW from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action, which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity or my use of CW's equipment or facilities, including any such claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of CW.

4. Should CW or anyone acting on their behalf be required to incur attorney's fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.

5. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have.

6. In the event that I file a lawsuit against CW, I agree to do so solely in the state of California, and I further agree that the substantive law of that state shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of law rules of that state. I agree that if any portions of this agreement are found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect.

By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation in this activity, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against CW on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein.

I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.
