This release is intended to discharge the Church and Premises Entities from any and all liability whatsoever arising out of or connected in any way with the Activity even though that liability may arise out of the negligence or carelessness on the part of the Church or any of the Premises Entities.
Indemnification: I agree to defend, indemnify, and hold the Church and the Premises Entities harmless from and against all claims, demands, causes of action, suits, damages, costs, losses, expenses, injuries, losses, damages, and liabilities of every kind and nature as a result of, arising out of, associated with, or resulting directly or indirectly from my child’s participation in the Activity. This indemnification includes, but is not limited to all amounts incurred by the Church or the Premises Entities for defending any such all claims, suits, damages, costs, losses and expenses, including all attorney’s fees and costs incurred.

Authorization and Consent to Medical Treatment: I certify that I may receive medical care and dental care pursuant to California Family Code Section 6550. I further certify that that I am medically fit to participate in the Activity. In the event that I am injured any time during my participation in the Activity, I hereby authorize and consent for the Church to administer general first aid treatment for any minor injuries or illnesses I may experience.

I understand that this authorization and consent is given in advance of any specific diagnosis, treatment or hospital care which may become required, but is given to provide authority and power to the Church to render care in the best judgment of the Church upon the advice of any such medical, dental, or emergency personnel. I understand that efforts shall be made to obtain my consent prior to rendering treatment, but that treatment will not be withheld if I am incapacitated, unavailable, or otherwise unable to provide consent. This authorization is given pursuant to California Family Code Section 6910, and authorization is hereby given to any medical, dental, or emergency personnel who have provided treatment to me. I acknowledge and understand that the Church does not provide medical, or dental insurance coverage for me in connection with my participation in the Activity and I agree to assume all responsibility for payment for any treatment I may receive.
In addition, our Medical Staff will be with us all week at camp (as they are each and every year) and they take great care of every situation that arises.
