GENERAL RELEASE AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT

In order for the below named Participant to be allowed to attend and participate in Weeki Wachee Christian Camp, the Participant and the Parents/Guardians of the Participant hereby agree(s) as follows: 

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the State of Florida, excluding its choice of law principles; 

If any provision of this Agreement is found to be invalid or unenforceable for any reason, the remaining provisions will nonetheless continue to be valid and enforceable. If a court or arbitrator holds that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, but that by limiting such provision, the Agreement would become valid and enforceable, then such provision shall be deemed to be written, construed, and enforced as so limited.

I/we for myself (ourselves), my/our heirs, successors and assigns, do hereby agree to release as well as  indemnify, save and hold harmless the following organizations and persons (referenced hereinafter as “Releasees/Indemnitees”) 

Christian Activities Inc. d/b/a Weeki Wachee Christian Camp, its Board of Directors, its employees, officers, agents, servants and volunteers acting for or on its behalf;
ORANGE STREET CHURCH OF CHRIST OF AUBURNDALE, INC., its employees, officers, agents, servants and volunteers acting for or on its behalf

from ANY and ALL claims of liability for compensation or damages that arise from or are in any way related to participation in Weeki Wachee Christian Camp and its related activities by the named Participant, including claims that are predicated on or related in any way to the negligent conduct of any of the Releasees/IndemniteesI/we understand that in the event such claims are asserted against the Releasees/Indemnitees that I/we will be responsible for paying for attorney’s fees defend Christian Activities Inc. and/or ORANGE STREET CHURCH OF CHRIST OF AUBURNDALE INC against such claims and will be further responsible for paying any judgment that is awarded against Christian Activities Inc. and/or ORANGE STREET CHURCH OF CHRIST OF AUBURNDALE INC;   

Specifically with regard to claims predicated on contracting COVID-19 or being exposed to COVID-19, I/we do further acknowledge the following: 

The novel coronavirus, COVID-19, is a highly infectious, potentially life-threatening disease declared by the World Health Organization to be a global pandemic. 

COVID-19’s highly contagious nature means that contact with others, or contact with surfaces that have been exposed to the virus, can lead to infection. Additionally, individuals who may have been infected with COVID-19 may be asymptomatic for a period of time, or may never become symptomatic at all. Because of its highly contagious and sometimes “hidden” nature, it is currently very difficult to control the spread of COVID- 19 or to determine whether, where, or how a specific individual may have been exposed to the disease; 

I/we understand that the State of Florida has put in place safety rules and precautions in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While acknowledging that these rules and precautions may or may not be effective in mitigating the spread of COVID-19, I agree to comply with such rules and precautions that may include, but are not limited to, mask wearing, hand washing, hand sanitizing, and social distancing. I will also comply with whatever COVID-19 related rules are put in place by Christian Activities Inc.

I/we acknowledge the contagious nature of COVID-19, the fact that it can be difficult to identify in another, and the inherent risks of being infected through exposure to those who may be infected with COVID-19. I/we voluntarily assume the risk that I/we (or our child who participates in this activity) may be exposed to

or infected by COVID- 19 by attending Weeki Wachee Christian Camp and its related activities and that such exposure or infection may result in personal injury, illness, permanent disability, and/or even death; 

I/we understand and acknowledge that given the unknown nature of COVID-19, it is not possible to fully list each and every individual risk of contracting COVID-19. I/we understand that the risk of becoming exposed to or infected by COVID-19 at Weeki Wachee Christian Camp and its related activities may result from the actions, omissions, or negligence of myself and others, including, but not limited to the 

Releasees/Indemnitees. I/we recognize that Christian Activities Inc. cannot limit all potential sources of COVID-19 infection. I/we acknowledge that I/we have sufficient information that I/we need in order to determine the risks associated with attending (or allowing our child to attend) Weeki Wachee Christian Camp and its related activities and to make an informed assumption of those risks; 

I/we understand that the wearing of masks does not remove all risks of infection nor does it make it inherently safe to attend Weeki Wachee Christian Camp. I/we alone must determine the sufficiency of any and all precautions that I/we decide to take (for myself or our children) to minimize the risks of contracting COVID-19;  

I/we voluntarily assume full responsibility for any and all risks of illness or injury associated with my or my children’s possible exposure to COVID-19.  

I/WE HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS AGREEMENT AND UNDERSTAND THAT BY SIGNING THIS 

AGREEMENT I/WE WILL BE WAIVING CERTAIN LEGAL RIGHTS, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO SUE AND 

WILL BE INCURRING THE LEGAL OBLIGATION TO SAVE, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS THE 

RELEASEES/INDEMNITEES UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES. THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE BINDING UPON ME AND MY/OUR HEIRS, LEGAL REPRESENTATIVES, AND ASSIGNS, AND SHALL INURE TO THE BENEFIT OF THE RELEASEES DESIGNATED HEREIN.
