MedCamp is an incredible weekend; we hope it is one of the best you have this year!
The Adelaide Medical Students’ Society (AMSS) encourages you to come and get to know the new first year students at an afternoon at the beach, with the Saturday night party following. The AMSS wants you to have the fun time for which MedCamp is renowned; however it is also important to take your safety seriously. We aim to provide a fun, relaxed and safe environment for all attendees. Therefore we have a series of guidelines we would like you to understand.
It is important that all attendees to MedCamp understand and acknowledge that:
- There are some risks associated with MedCamp;
- These risks could result in personal injury or, in extreme circumstances, death, or damage or loss of personal property;
- The AMSS does not accept liability for these risks; and
- There are associated requirements for attendee behaviour.
The areas of risk, the safeguards put in place by the AMSS, and the associated requirements for attendee behaviour are outlined under the various headings below.
If there are any questions or concerns regarding the safety of MedCamp, you can contact the MedCamp Convenors at firstname.lastname@example.org the Executive at email@example.com.

MedCamp is a licensed event; alcohol is provided to attendees in accordance with the relevant legislation and the AMSS Drug and Alcohol Policy. It is expected that attendees drink responsibly throughout the event. Alcohol will not be served to attendees under the age of 18, or anyone deemed to be intoxicated. Attendees must not bring their own alcohol to MedCamp.
The AMSS has a zero-tolerance policy to illicit drugs and does not accept any liability for any consequences of the use or possession of illicit drugs at MedCamp. Any students found to be using, or in the possession of, illicit drugs will be required to leave the premises immediately. They will be required to arrange their own transport back to Adelaide.
Attendees are required to arrange their own transport to the event. The AMSS encourages students to car-pool to the event. Attendees under the influence of alcohol will not be given unsupervised access to their vehicles, and must not under any circumstance drive their vehicles. It is expected that all attendees drive with care and respect in and around the campsite.
Sports and activities
Attendees that participate in sports and activities provided at MedCamp do so at their own risk. The risk of exposure from inclement weather should also be acknowledged and managed appropriately by attendees.
The AMSS will not tolerate any forms of harassment (physical, social or sexual), bullying or other social misconduct during the course of MedCamp. Furthermore, attendees that engage in irresponsible or reckless social behaviour do so at their own risk. The AMSS does not accept any liability for the consequences of irresponsible social behaviour at MedCamp. At MedCamp this year no access will be allowed to the car park or cars after 8pm. The result of this occurring will prevent the further use of Camp Dzintari in the future and possibly jeopardise the future of the event.
Theft / damage to property
Any person that is caught damaging or stealing property, including but not limited to the property of Camp Dzintari, will be required to leave the event and will be required to arrange their own transport back to Adelaide. Additionally, they will also be invoiced in the case that any cost has arisen as a result of their actions, as well as the possibility of exclusion from future AMSS events. The AMSS will not be liable for any damage to, or loss of, personal property brought to MedCamp. Attendees should not bring valuable goods, such as laptop computers. Any possessions are the responsibility of the owner.
Medical conditions and allergies
Attendees with known medical conditions that might influence their health at MedCamp must make these known to the MedCamp Convenors via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) before Friday 8 March 2013. This is particularly important for those with conditions that require regular medication.
Attendees with known allergies must make these known to the MedCamp Convenors via email (email@example.com) before Wednesday 6 March 2013. If any allergies are not made aware to the appropriate convening persons and an event occurs in which an attendee’s health is compromised as a result, the AMSS and any convening persons are not responsible for the event and will not be held accountable.
There will be doctors and older students acting as Welfare Officers for the entirety of MedCamp. If you have any concerns about your own safety, the behaviour of other MedCamp attendees or any other problems, please make sure you speak to one of these Officers.
