Forms and Policies


All participants in Outdoor Center programs are required to complete one or more forms. Most program participants will complete the General Assumption of Risk, Informed Consent and Medical History Form. Some longer programs, depending on the duration and type of activity, will require that participants complete an Assumption of Risk & Informed Consent form specific to the activity as well as a Medical Information form. We ask that these forms are completed and returned to the Outdoor Center at least 24 hours in advance of your program to allow our staff to review them.

DISCLAIMER: We make the following documents available as a resource for students and staff at GCSU and the Outdoor Center at Georgia College. They are not intended for application to other settings. Any other use of the information contained on this web page, in whole or in part, must be made with attention to industry standards, environmental conditions, organizational policy and the unique mission of the program or service.
