SAFETY RISK ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
Tree climbing safely is fun, exhilarating, healthy, and educational: “Tree climbing involves many life skills, testing muscles and strength, improving hand-eye coordination, building confidence, assessing and taking risks, facing fears, learning about gravity, problem solving and having FUN!” Kids of the Wild
Tree Climbing takes place in a variety of habitats and these environments are never completely hazard free. While Wild Tree Adventures makes every effort to minimise risks, we will not be held liable for accidents, death, injury or loss of property that are not a result of negligence on the part of Wild Tree Adventures, or for any accidents or losses which are due to participant’s failure to follow the instructions of the Instructors.
The activities are of a substantial and physically testing nature and this is an outdoor activity so please note that there will always be a risk of injury from hazards such as tree branches, the environment you are in and the challenging nature of the activity, climbing ropes, improper use of equipment and other users climbing as well as the inherent risks associated with being at height. You will required to sign our Safety Acknowledgment form before you can start climbing. If Under 18 years of age a parent or guardian must complete and sign the form for you.
