some are part of adventurous sports. I agree to assume the inherent risks and all other
risks in the activities.

expenses, which may arise from my use of the Lake Lehow premises during the program.

participating in the activities safely. I certify that I have no medical condition or
restriction that prevents me from safely participating in this program.
