Fall 2019 Dino-Snore
Assumption of Risk, Release from Liability and Indemnification

My child(ren) is/are not yet 18-years-old and will participate in the Yale University (“Yale”) Yale Peabody Museum Winter Dino-snore, from Saturday, November 9, 2019 to Sunday November 10, 2019 (the “Program”). The Dino-Snore program is an overnight program that will be held at the Yale Peabody Museum at 170 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, CT 06511 and will provide the opportunity to participate in fun and engaging hands-on experiences. Participants will participate in multiple hands-on activities.  This document (“Agreement”) covers all aspects of my child’s participation in the program. In this Agreement, “Yale” means Yale, its trustees, officers, employees, trainees, students, volunteers, and agents.


1. Program Risks. I understand that participation in the Program involves risks that Yale cannot eliminate, including, among others, risk of property damage, illness, field trips or transportation to and from field trip locations, use of non-motorized tools, bodily injury, permanent disability, and death.

2. Assumption of Risk. I voluntarily take responsibility for all risks of participating in the Program.

3. Release. In exchange for Yale allowing my child to participate in the program, I release Yale from all legal and financial responsibility for any harm that I, my child, or our property might suffer as a result of my child’s participation, even if the harm is caused by Yale’s negligence.

4. Indemnification. I agree to indemnify and hold Yale harmless from (that is to say, I agree to pay or reimburse Yale for) any costs, penalties, legal fees, or judgments (“Costs”) that Yale has to pay related to my child’s participation in the Program, even if the Costs resulted from Yale’s negligence.


5. Governing Law and Jurisdiction. The laws of Connecticut shall govern and the courts of Connecticut shall interpret this Agreement.

6. Binding Agreement. This Agreement shall legally bind me, and my child, family members, spouse, estate, heirs, administrators, or personal representatives.

7. Severability. If a court decides that any part of this Agreement cannot be enforced, I agree to change that part to make it enforceable. If the unenforceable part cannot legally be changed, it will be severed, but the rest of the Agreement will remain in effect.

8. Signature.  I agree that I have read and understood this Agreement, I am competent to sign it, and I do so voluntarily and without relying on anything Yale wrote or told me except what is written above. I understand that I am free not to sign this Agreement and to find a different program for my child.


Before you sign this Agreement, please read it carefully because it affects your legal rights.
