In order to maintain high safety standards, all participants are to comply with Outdoor Recreation's policies and procedures explained by our leaders.
A clear head is important to ensure actions are essential for the safety and the success of each trip. Drugs and alcohol on any outing are against Outdoor Recreation Policy.
We work together as a team which means we depend on each other for safety. We work in remote areas. In case of an emergency we may request your assistance.
Participants should respect the fragile wilderness areas we use.
Violation of these principals may result in expulsion. If you are asked to leave a trip because of misconduct, you will forfeit trip fees and receive a charge for evacuation or transportation from the visiting location.
