We try to make our camp as safe as possible but of course we cannot foresee or control every possible factor. Use your good judgement to know the limits of your body and don’t push it too far. In case of accident or injury we will do our best to get you the care you need, including getting you to a doctor or to the hospital if necessary, but please be aware that we cannot have a full-time doctor on site and that travel time to the hospital can be long, especially on dark bumpy roads after a late-night social.  After all, Ferme Les Costes is a country retreat.​

And now please enjoy reading some legalese in this lovely waiver:​

By submitting this registration, you confirm that you understand and agree that in participating in any dance class, workshop, rehearsal, or performance, there is a possibility of physical injury or death. You voluntarily agree, therefore, to assume all risks and responsibility for any such injury or accident, which might occur to you during any SwingStep classes, workshops, events, or activities. You also exempt, release, and indemnify SwingStep, its proprietors, agents, volunteers, assistants, employees, guest artists, members, and/or students from any and all liability claims, demands, or causes of action whatsoever from any damage, loss, injury, or death to you or your property which may arise out of or in connection with participation in any classes or activities conducted by SwingStep. You also expressly acknowledge that injuries received may be compounded or increased by negligent rescue operations or procedures of the releases. You further hereby voluntarily agree to waive your rights and that of your heirs and assigns to hold SwingStep, its proprietors, agents, volunteers, assistants, employees, guest artists, members, and/or students liable for such damage, loss, injury, or death. You understand that you should be aware of your physical limitations and agree not to exceed them.​


We love to share the Swing Summit experience with the community, including sharing pictures and videos of the event. Of course we will do our best to show everyone at their best – and it’s to your advantage too: you and everyone else get mementos of the camp and all the people you trained and danced with. So, by registering for the camp you hereby grant Swing Step permission to use photographs and videos of participants for publicity purposes.
