My Medical Form is
My emergency contact information has changed

We need new med forms at the start of every school year OR the first conference a participant attends. Med forms will be kept on file for the duration of the school year and attenders do not need to submit a new form for each subsequent conference they attend. Medical forms from camp, annual session or the previous school year do not count as they have already been filed away over the summer. Friends that do not submit a med form are not allowed to stay at the event without the proper signed documentation. Copies of insurance cards are helpful but not necessary.

Junior Young Friends Gathering Expectations

JYFs try new things, attend all community meetings and events, and participate in color group activities and chores.

JYFs practice enthusiastic consent - asking for, and getting, permission before touching other members of the community or using their stuff - and treat community members, their belongings, and conference venues with care.

JYFs are kind and encouraging, don’t exclude people, listen to and respect others’ opinions - and their need for rest.

JYFs think before acting, use good judgment, and practice self-care. And they abide by any other decisions or rules made at a particular conference, particularly those involving sleep schedules and spaces.

Behavior that threatens others or makes them uncomfortable, or disrupts or destroys community, will not be tolerated. Nor will bringing or using any form of tobacco, alcohol or illegal drugs - or engaging in any form of sexual activity or harassment.

If a problem arises, JYFs notify the Youth Programs Manager or a FAP.

Consequences for violating these expectations are decided by the Youth Programs Manager, in consultation with the DFAP, other FAPs, and the JYF or JYFs involved.

Parents of JYFs are informed of any serious transgressions involving their child, either immediately or at the end of the conference.

I willingly agree to comply with the Gathering Expectations. If I observe any unusual significant hazard during my presence or participation, I will remove myself from participation and bring the issue to the attention of the FAPs and/or the Youth Programs Manager immediately.
I, for myself and on behalf of my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and next of kin, whereby release, indemnify, and hold harmless the Baltimore Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, Inc. their officers, officials, agents and/or employees, other participants, sponsoring agencies, sponsors, advertisers, and, if applicable, owners and lessors of premises used for the activity, with respect to any and all injury, disability, death, or loss or damage to person or property associated with my presence or participation, whether arising from the negligence of the releasees or otherwise, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
I understand transportation to and from conferences is my responsibility and release BYM, staff, and volunteers from responsibility unless transportation is provided by the program.Furthermore, I will notify the Youth Programs Manager in advance if my arrival and departure times are outside the designated conference schedule.
