THANK YOU FOR SHOWING AN INTEREST IN THE WILD BOB'S ONLINE KIDS CLUB!!
Joining our online community is completely free and is a prerequisite to children attending any sessions with Wild Bob's as by joining you will be giving us the information and permissions needed in order to safely run our sessions.
Attendance at our events is not a prerequisite for being part of our community though. By signing up to the online community you will keep up to date with any offers we might have, plus we will keep your inboxes filled with ideas and activities for you and your children to explore the natural world together.
Please do take the time to consider all of the details below and ensure you tick the box to say you have read, understood and are in agreement with the waiver to make sure you are kept up to date. Failure to do so will mean we may not be able to share certain information with you.
If you do not wish to receive emails from us you can up date your settings any time. We understand that from time to time your circumstances may change too so you can keep us up to date here too.
So here goes, the nitty gritty. Please do take time to read this thoroughly and ensure you understand. If you do have any questions please do get in touch and one of our team will get back to you.
Photographic records will only be used by Wild Bob’s if permission is granted by parents/carers of children. Photographs will never be annotated with names or anything that links to the child’s identify. Wild Bob’s will only use unnamed photographs in its brochures, website and social media. We would be grateful if you would fill in this form to give us permission to take photos of your child and use these in our printed and online publicity. I give Wild Bob’s permission to take photographs and / or video of my child. I grant Wild Bob’s full rights to use the images resulting from the photography/video filming, and any reproductions or adaptations of the images for publicity or other purposes to help achieve the group’s aims. This might include (but is not limited to), the right to use them in their printed and online publicity, social media and press releases.

Participation in the activities at Wild Bob’s outdoor sessions, carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries.

The staff at Wild Bob’s will do their utmost to ensure my child’s safety, however I acknowledge that it is my responsibility to ensure that my child participates only in those activities for which he/she has the required skills.
Understanding the risk:

I understand that it is my responsibility to ensure that my child is dressed appropriately for each activity and acknowledge that I have been briefed on the recommended attire.
