I have read the description of the Homeschool Thursday program experience offered at Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium and understand the information listed above. Pickups after the end of the program will be charged by the 5-min increment ($5 for every 5 minutes past the designated pick-up time). I also understand that activities will be involved in my child's camp program; I find them acceptable for my child’s participation. Recognizing the educational benefits of this program to my child, and acknowledging that it is completely voluntary, I, the parent/guardian, do hereby agree to release, indemnify and hold harmless the Calusa Nature Center & Planetarium for any loss, injury, or damage resulting directly or indirectly from my child's participation in this program. Pictures of the program, not identifying my child, maybe used online to illustrate program activities and promote future programs. My acceptance and submission of this form constitute my digital signature (paper waiver will be signed on the first day of the program).
