    Participant’s Consent to Basic Guidelines

    We expect participants to attend the full camp- this will create a stronger sense of community and allow you to experience all the programming we have planned. In addition, we will be facilitating transportation to and from this remote location from one or more regional meeting points at the beginning and end of camp.

    Will you be able to stay for the entire duration of the camp?* If not, please explain.

    The following non-negotiable guidelines have been established for participants of IndigenEYEZ gatherings to create a safe and respectful environment for everyone.

    • No leaving the program grounds without authorization • No coupling/no sex • Check-in all valuables including money, electronic equipment, passports, etc. with the camp manager for safe keeping at registration? • No drugs, tobacco or alcohol

    *PLEASE NOTE* DO NOT BRING: I-Pods, CD players, headsets or other electronics. If you forget and bring them, or need them for your travel to and from camp, we will ask you to check them in with the camp manager at registration (along with any other valuables). We will put them in a locked area for safe-keeping during camp. If you do not check in your valuables, and something goes missing at camp, we will assume you have misplaced, not that it was taken by anyone else. Please help us keep the positive energy going at the camp by checking in your valuables.



    Participants will be expected to bring their own tent and sleeping gear. After registration we will send out a detailed list of what to bring.

    Please tick the items you do not have access - we may have spare items.

    I understand that by signing this Form, by typing my name in the field below, I am agreeing to follow these guidelines, and that not following them could result in the loss of my ability to participate in the program.
