I, the undersigned, hereby acknowledge that I have been advised and fully understand that certain elements of danger are inherent in the activities sponsored by Quiet Heart Wilderness School, which are beyond the control of the instructors, agents, officers, students and employees of Quiet Heart Wilderness School, and that participation in any program activities may entail unavoidable risk of personal injury, death, and loss of or damage to property.
