I.               Transportation.


You have signed an agreement to participate in Canaan Christian Church’s summer camp program (“Camp”). You will be transported to and from Skycroft Conference Center, 9621 Frostown Road, Middletown, MD 21769 (“Skycroft”).  We will depart from Canaan Christian Church, 2100 University Blvd West, Silver Spring, MD 20902 (the “Church”) to Skycroft.  By executing this agreement, you agree to be at the Church at the designated time, transported to Skycroft, and returned to the Church at the end of camp, hereinafter referred to as the “Transportation”. You will be responsible for being at the Church on time.  The pick-up and drop off time schedule has been previously provided to you.  In consideration of having me transported as provided herein, I hereby agree to release the Church from any liability and waive certain rights as set forth below.


A.              Assumption of Risk. I knowingly, voluntarily, and understand that the Transportation provided to me as set forth in this agreement involves inherent risks and dangers of accidents, rescue operations, emergency treatment, property loss or damage, serious personal and bodily injury, death, and severe personal and economic losses. These may result from actions, inactions, or negligence during such Transportation, but also from the actions, inactions, or negligence of others, or the condition of the facilities, equipment, or vehicles. Further, there may be other risks not known to me or reasonably foreseeable at this time. I understand and I have considered the risks involved, and I voluntarily and freely choose to assume these risks for myself.

B.              Release from Liability. I fully and forever release and discharge the Church and its respective affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, and insurers, and all others involved in the Camp from any and all injuries, losses, damages, claims, demands, lawsuits, expenses, and any other liability of any kind, of or to me, my property, or any other person, directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with the Transportation as provided in this agreement, even if it is due to the negligence, omission, or other fault of the Church.

C.              Indemnity. I will defend, indemnify, hold harmless, and reimburse the Church from and for all damages, losses, costs, or expenses (including legal fees) incurred by the Church or paid by them to any person (including me or my insurers) in respect of any accident, injury, loss, or property damage, however caused resulting from, arising out of, or otherwise in connection with my consent to have myself being transported as provide herein. I will reimburse the Church if anyone makes a claim against the Church in connection with said Transportation, including, without limitation, any accident, or any injury, loss, harm to my child, other parties, or property, however caused.

D.              Covenant Not to Sue. I will not initiate any claim, lawsuit, court action, or other legal proceeding or demand against the Church nor join or assist in the prosecution of any claim for money or other damages which anyone may have, on account of injuries, losses, or damages sustained by me or other parties in connection with being transported as provided herein and I waive any right I may have to do so. This means that I cannot sue for myself to hold the Church responsible for any injury, loss, or damage sustained by me, other parties, or my (or others') property in connection with the Transportation, even if it is due to the negligence, omission, or other fault of the Church. I waive my insurers' right to make a claim against the Church, if applicable, based on payments by insurers to me for any reason. This means my insurers have no rights of subrogation against the Church.

E.              Medical Treatment and Expenses. I hereby consent to receive medical treatment which may be deemed necessary in the event of any illness, accident, or injury, or medical emergency resulting from or in connection with the Transportation of myself and understand that I am solely responsible for all costs related to such medical treatment, medical transportation, and/or evacuation.


II.             Publicity.


I hereby grant to the Church and its affiliates all right to use any photographs, videos, name and other likenesses of myself for any purpose, including, the purpose of making, providing, performing, advertising, promoting, marketing, selling, and otherwise commercializing services, including without limitation, in, as part of, or in connection with any advertising, promotional, marketing, any other purpose whatsoever.


III.           Rules and Regulations.


I have read the rules and regulations regarding participation in Camp and agree that I will comply with any and all rules and regulations established by the Church and at the Camp location.  I understand that failure to follow the rules and regulations may be a basis for the Church to terminate my participation in the Camp. 


IV.           Miscellaneous.

This agreement shall be binding upon and enforceable against me, my personal representatives, spouse, assigns, heirs, and next of kin without limitation. It is my desire and intent that the words, terms, provisions, covenants, and remedies contained in this agreement shall be enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by the laws of the State of Maryland. If any portion of this agreement is held invalid, the remainder shall not be affected and shall continue in full legal force and effect. That shall include modifying the agreement to allow any remaining claims to be waived, released, and indemnified against in the event that the inclusion of any particular provision is found to be invalid or contrary to public policy. The terms of this agreement shall continue from this date forever. This document constitutes the entire agreement between the Church and me and supersedes any previous or contemporaneous discussions or agreements between us in respect of these matters.

I specifically acknowledge and agree that this document is not intended to be a general release subject to limitations and conditions that would otherwise apply under applicable state laws, ordinances, statutes, rules, and regulations and additionally agree to waive any and all general release limitations provided by applicable law or any rights granted to me under applicable law.
