The camp with that form I was talking about was the Toronto Raptors Basketball camp, so the coverage and use of the images etc etc etc. could have been extensive. I am told there would have been media there at the opening of camp, and the kids would have been in a photo shoot on both the Monday and the Friday. Uniforms provided, and they are required to change into them for the shoot.
I was given two choices when they finally responded after I sent a follow up e-mail. I could withdraw my child and they would refund my money, or they could attempt to run the process and keep her behind the cameras. I asked how much filming would be going on - virtually continuously - and how she would be able to participate meaningfully in the program. He didn't have an answer for that.
Can you just see how much fun that would have been for her? OK...Youngest's turn for the drill...cameras off...., OK youngest, you can't do this drill till everyone is finished, and you don't have a partner cause we can't film you! Oh, and don't speak while we are filming either.....
Seems to me that this is more of a marketing event than a camp. The form was certainly designed to protect the marketing rights of the organisation with no concern for the rights of the children.
She won't be attending.
I haven't had a chance to tell her that. SO looking forward to that conversation.
