A refund packet must be completed by the participant and turned into the Outdoor Pursuits Coordinator within 2 weeks of the canceled trip. Once the Outdoor Pursuits Coordinator receives all forms, a check will be mailed to the participant’s home within two weeks.
  • Each trip is different, but usually included in the trip price is transportation, activity specific gear, vendor/guide for the activity, trip leader service and some food. For more details about a specific trip feel free to contact us!
  • Pre-trip meetings are the Trip Leader’s opportunity to provide relevant information concerning the trip to all participants. Trip Leaders should use this opportunity to have participants’ complete paperwork, give trip specific information, review safety protocols, check gear, and establish time deadlines. Trip Leaders should be confident that participants know and understand the dangers/risks associated with a specific trip at the end of this meeting. Pre-trip meetings are mandatory for all participants. If a participant doesn’t attend a pre-trip meeting and does not contact and meet with the Trip Leader prior to the pre-trip meeting s/he will not be allowed to attend the trip and will not receive a refund.
