Release and Consent *
I, the parent or legal guardian for the children named above and I hereby give my permission for my child(ren) to participate in the Talcottville Congregational Church Vacation Bible School (hereafter referred to as TCC VBS). In this agreement, “TCC VBS” means teachers, volunteers, governing board, officers, employees and agents. I understand that participation in the program involves risks that TCC VBS cannot eliminate, including, among others, risk of property damage, illness, bodily injury, permanent disability, and death. I voluntarily take responsibility for all risks of participating in the program. In exchange for TCC VBS allowing my child to participate in the program, I release TCC VBS from all legal and financial responsibility for any harm that I, my child, or our property might suffer as a result of my child’s participation, even if the harm is caused by TCC VBS’s negligence. I agree to indemnify and hold TCC VBS harmless from (that is to say, I agree to pay or reimburse TCC VBS for) any costs, penalties, legal fees, or judgments (“Costs”) that TCC VBS has to pay related to my child’s participation in the program, even if the Costs resulted from TCC VBS’s negligence. I permit TCC VBS to utilize photographs and videos of my child taken during his/her involvement in the mentoring program and waive all rights of compensation.
