I fully understand that it is expected that my son/daughter will attend the trip on the dates shown.
I have ensured that my child understands that it is important for his/her safety and for the safety of the group that any rules and any instructions given by the volunteers are to be obeyed.
Open DofE Centres in West Sussex (ODECS) expects that participants will treat the centre and volunteers with respect. as we do with the participants who attend the Duke of Edinburgh's Award sessions.
It is not up to the ODECS volunteers who have trained the participants to assess the expedition section of the award. Each expedition has an independent assessor, who has not been involved in their training. The assessor will decide if your son/daughter has met the required standards to pass the expedition section of their award.
I understand that, while the ODECS volunteers and helpers in charge of the party will take all reasonable care of the paricipants, unless they are negligent, they cannot be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by the participants arising during or out of the activity, including journeys to and from the venue.
I, the named Parent or Carer, or Participant if over 18, understand that by clicking the "I agree" box, I give consent for the participant to take part in the activity specified.
