If I am an Adult/Rover, I agree to complete all necessary steps to undergo a National Police Records Check. I understand that still and video photography of people and events will take place at the Jamboree and agree that this material may be used to promote Scouts Australia without my permission or payment. In consideration of Scouts Australia (which term includes each Branch thereof and the Jamboree Organising Committee) accepting this application for the Jamboree: I acknowledge that the activities conducted at the Jamboree will involve physical tasks, which inherently may contain risk of injury. I/We understand that those activities are carried out on a challenge by choice basis, and that the applicant may decline to participate in any one or more activities should he/she so desire. I agree that in the event of accident or illness, I/ We authorise an officer, servant, agent or Leader of Scouts Australia to obtain on my/our behalf, and at my/our expense, such urgent medical or dental assistance, treatment, nursing, hospital and/or ambulance service as may be considered appropriate by such officer, servant, agent or Leader of Scouts Australia, and (should it be advised by a duly qualified Medical Practitioner that it is necessary) to authorise a general anaesthetic. I agree to pay on demand to Scouts Australia, all such medical, hospital and other fees and expenses incurred or to be incurred by Scouts Australia in such circumstances other than such fees and expenses recoverable under any policy of insurance taken out by Scouts Australia. I understand that the Applicant is expected to act and behave in accordance with the acknowledged principles and rules of the Jamboree and the Scout Association. Should the Jamboree Camp Chief or Contingent Leader determine that the Applicant has not acted or behaved in such manner, I understand and agree that, at the discretion of the Jamboree Camp Chief or Contingent Leader, the Applicant may be returned to their place of residence by the most direct means at my/our expense, including expense such as return fares and accommodation for accompanying adults, and no claim can or will be made by me/us for any compensation or damages. I understand that in the event of circumstances beyond reasonable control of the Jamboree Executive Committee, e.g., a major bushfire, the Jamboree may be cancelled in part or in full, with a resultant loss to participants in funds paid and personal equipment. I further understand it has been recommended that participants insure against such a risk.
