I agree I shall assume all such risks, as well as any other risks involved in any activities sponsored by or involving NorthBay.
I also agree to release and discharge NorthBay and all of its employees, agents, and representatives, as well as all other persons, corporations, or other entities that might have any liability to or me (the "Released Parties"), from and against any and all damages, actions, claims, and liabilities, whether known or unknown, anticipated or unanticipated, suspected or unsuspected, relating to or arising from me attending camp or being involved in any activity, occurrence, or event connected to Northbay.
This Release is intended to release and discharge the Released Parties from all damages, actions, claims, and liabilities arising from or related to the negligence of the Released Parties. I further agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend NorthBay from and against any loss, damage, liability and expense, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by NorthBay that is related to or arise from me attending camp or being involved in any activity, occurrence, or event connected in any way to NorthBay. I hereby grant permission to NorthBay the right to use, reproduce, and/or distribute photographs, films, video-tapes, and sound recordings of me, without compensation or approval rights, for use in materials created for purposes of promoting the activities of NorthBay.
