General Trip Policies

Expand or Collapse all.
  • Depending on the trip length and activity, certain things may or may not be included. Read the trip description on the registration website for specific information.

  • Pre-trip meetings are mandatory for all participants and meet at the Outdoor Center in Sewell Park.

    Participants who do not attend the pre-trip meeting for the trip they are registered for will forfeit their spot on the trip and will not be eligible for a refund.

    Waitlisted participants should attend the pre-trip meeting and will be awarded a spot if other registered participants do not show.

  • The Outdoor Recreation Program staff makes every effort to provide you with an enjoyable trip. You will assume the responsibility for many decisions affecting yourself during the activity, however, the trip leaders have final authority and will not hesitate to dismiss those whose conduct is detrimental to themselves, the group or the activity site.

    Participants should be aware that outdoor activities can be physically demanding with inherent elements of risk and danger beyond our control. These risks include but are not limited to the potential for accidents or illness while traveling to and from the activity sites, or while participating in activities in rugged mountain, wilderness and river terrain. While we do not assume liability for personal injury or death, every effort is made to minimize these risks.

  • Cancellation dates vary for each trip. This date is typically the pre-trip and registration deadline date. If a trip does not meet the minimum registration amount, the trip will be cancelled and refunds will be provided.

    Transfers may be made to another available activity at full value if done before the cancellation date. No transfers will be granted past the cancellation date.

    Refunds will, in general, not be approved for trip registrations. If your spot on the roster can be filled, a refund will be processed. If you are unable to participate fully in a trip due to inadequate fitness or undisclosed conditions, your registration fee will not be refunded.
