The US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit ruled that the insurer of a bible conference center was not liable for injuries suffered by a child who fell from a zip line suspended 50 feet in the air. The case is Great Am. All. Ins. Co. v. Windermere Baptist Conference Ctr., Inc., No. 17-3635, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 22443 (8th Cir. July 29, 2019).

Windmere Baptist Conference center is a Missouri venue that hosts religious camps. Student Life, an affiliate of the Southern Baptist Convention, has hosted camps at Windmere on several occasions. Student Life rents group lodging and campers can access common spaces and recreational activities such as the swimming pool, trails, and miniature golf course. Some recreational areas are not open for campers access, such as the ropes and zipline course, called The Edge. To access those areas, campers must pay an additional fee and make separate arrangements.
