Teen & Young Adult Group Registration

  • Please identify an individual other than yourself that we can contact in case of an emergency.
    I authorize my child to participate in Children’s Clinics Childhood Experiences Programs. I acknowledge the risks inherent in the participation by my child. In my absence, I further authorize the staff representing Children’s Clinics to act for me according to their best judgment in any emergency requiring medical attention for my child and I hereby waive and release those staffers, and volunteers of Children’s Clinics from all liability for any injuries or illnesses, that may be incurred while participating in Children’s Clinics Childhood Experiences, while in attendance, except for injury directly resulting from gross negligence or willful misconduct.
    COVID-19 Waiver of Liability: I also authorize my child to participate in Children’s Clinics Childhood Experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. I understand the COVID-19 virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be highly contagious. It is impossible to determine who has it and who does not without a test to confirm. I understand that due to the inherent nature of exercise, sports, and group events, and based on the evolving knowledge of the virus, my child has an elevated risk of contracting the virus simply by participating. I understand that my child contracting the virus may place others he or she comes in contact with at risk for contracting the virus as well. I confirm that I will not send my child to the program if my child or anyone from their household are known to be carrying the virus or have any of the following symptoms of COVID-19: • Fever • Shortness of Breath • Dry cough • Runny Nose • Sore Throat • Diminished sense of smell or taste. I also understand the CDC recommends social distancing of at least 3-6 feet, but this will not be possible for the entire duration of Children’s Clinics Childhood Experiences Programming. In an effort to mitigate risk, Children’s Clinics staff and volunteers will wear a mask and it is required that all participants and adults accompanying the child wear a mask that covers both their nose and mouth. I understand that while Children’s Clinics staff and volunteers will follow mitigation procedures to reduce risk, a risk still remains. As the parent/guardian, I agree to assume all risks and hazards associated with my child’s participation, including the risks associated with the COVID 19 pandemic. To the fullest extent permitted by law, I agree to waive, release, and discharge any and all claims against Children’s Clinics. I have read, understand, and accept the COVID-19 Expectations and Waiver of Liability.
    I consent to the photographing/video recording/ audio recording of the above-named patients by Children's Clinics staff at this event. I agree the resulting images or recordings may be used for Children's Clinics publicity or marketing purposes (brochure, pamphlet, lobby display, social media posts, printed material, etc.). I understand that I have the right to reverse this consent, in writing, at any time before the image or recording is used for the purposes indicated above.

Integrative Touch for Kids (ITK)

Integrative Touch for Kids (ITK) shared many special moments with us this year. Not only fo they offer services in our pediatric palliative care clinic, but they also hosted their first two “Healing Circles” at the Clinic in 2017. Healing Circles are a place for families to receive integrative wellness therapies, play, and find a sense of community- free of charge. Therapies include bodywork, acupuncture, sound healing, energy therapies, play, art, and movement therapies like Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and many more.

Art and Sienna

Art is no stranger to volunteering, he has donated hundreds of hours of volunteer service to different organizations, ranging from juvenile detention centers to assisted living centers. Upon hearing about the Children’s Clinics from a friend, he began volunteering with the Children’s Clinics in summer 2019.

Art does not work alone, he and his loving golden retriever, Sienna, donate a morning each week to spend time with patients, families, and the Children’s Clinics staff. At our clinic events, you will see them dressed to impress for our patients and families.

Sienna was rescued by Art from the Southern Arizona Golden Retriever Rescue in 2018. Her calm and affectionate demeanor spreads joy to anyone who interacts with her.

Sienna’s favorite past times include ear pets and eating cheeseburgers.

Art’s favorite part about volunteering at the Children’s Clinics is the home-like feel and interacting with those who need a little joy in their day. Art and Sienna have an innate ability to make anyone smile. We are incredibly grateful for their service!
