Outdoor Recreation, Education and Leadership Program
Assumption of Risk, Release of Liability, and Indemnification Agreement

Assumption of Risk

I have chosen to participate in the above-described Event sponsored by the Outdoor Recreation, Education, and Leadership Program of Westminster College and do so in full recognition and appreciation of the dangers and hazards inherent in an Event of this type and voluntarily assume all risks associated with such participation. I understand and acknowledge that the term “participation” is defined as any and all activities related directly or indirectly to the Program,

I understand that risks include, but are not limited to, travel hazards and hazardous activities that may expose me to illness, serious physical injury, extreme weather conditions, mental trauma, drowning, loss of limb, or death.

I understand and accept that this event may be planned, led and managed by one or more Student Leaders and, if so, I understand no faculty/staff member will be present.

I am freely participating in this event with knowledge of the danger involved and hereby agree to assume and accept all associated risks and responsibilities to which I may be exposed or subjected.

I accept the sole responsibility to be familiar with the physical and/or mental demands associated with the above named event. I represent that I am physically, mentally, and emotionally able, with or without accommodation, to participate in the Program and have no physical, mental, or emotional medical condition which, to my knowledge, would endanger others or myself as a result of my participation. Should I require emergency medical treatment as a result of accident or illness, I consent to such treatment. I agree to be financially responsible for any medical bills incurred, including, but not limited to, transportation to a health care provider.

I agree to act in a reasonable manner and to follow all applicable laws and college policies; I also agree that my failure to do so, whether by accident or design, does not change, alter or void my intention to assume all risk and responsibilities associated with the Program nor does it change, alter, or void my intention to release and indemnify Westminster College as set forth below.

I understand and acknowledge that Westminster College is not an insurer of participants’ behavior and actions and that the College assumes no liability for personal injuries to myself or to third persons arising out of my participation in this activity, including any loss, damage or injury caused by the use of a College vehicle, including, but not limited, to College vehicles operated by Students.

I understand and accept that the vehicles used for transporting participants, equipment, or supplies on may be driven by Students.

If transportation is provided through the voluntary use of private vehicles, I understand and accept that the owners and operators of such vehicles are not agents or employees of the College. In that situation, I assume full responsibility for the selection and use of my own transportation in connection with the Event and release the College from all responsibility and liability for any injury or damage which may arise from this transportation.

Release of Liability & Indemnification

I do, for myself, my heirs, successors, assigns, and personal representative(s), hereby agree to release, waive, covenant not to sue, indemnify, and hold harmless Westminster College, its Board of Trustees, officers, agents, employees, and volunteers from any and all liabilities, claims, demands or actions, whether in law or in equity and whether in tort, including negligence, or in contract, on account of any property or personal losses, damages and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, or on account of personal injury, death, or emotional distress which may result, directly or indirectly, from my participation in the Westminster Outdoor Recreation Program, unless any such damage or injury is primarily the direct result of gross negligence or intentional misconduct of Westminster College or any of its officers, employees, volunteers, or lawful agents and not caused in part by my own negligence.

It is my intention and I do hereby agree to be financially responsible for any property damage/loss or injuries, physical, mental or emotional, that I may suffer. I acknowledge and understand that Westminster College carries no insurance for personal injury, illness or property damage/loss.

This Agreement and Release, in its entirety, shall run to and be binding upon me and my heirs, assigns, and estate. It shall be governed by the laws of the State of Utah. Should any provision of this Agreement be found to be unenforceable, all remaining provisions will remain in full force and effect.
