If the trip is canceled prior to departure a 100% refund will be given. This may include but is not limited to: not making the minimum group size, travel and/or activity logistics, environmental conditions, staffing and other issues inherent to working in the outdoors. A partial refund will be granted if the participant submits a request prior to 72 hours before the scheduled departure date. No refunds will be granted within or after 72 hours of departure. No refunds will be granted based on participant satisfaction or incomplete excursions as trips may be altered as necessitated by the conditions presented at the time.
If you are unable to attend a trip that you have already registered for you are allowed one no-show without a fee, if you have any further no-shows, a $10 fee will be charged and a hold placed on your student account until payment. However, we encourage all participants to contact OAR and/or trip leaders if/as soon as a conflict arises so that another student may enjoy the open spot.
Please read our participant expectations to familiarize yourself with the standards we hold all participants to while partaking in any OAR related event.
Safety Briefings will also occur during the trip and leaders will outline any additional and/ or specific expectations.
If you have a trip that you would like to see this year please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions.
Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the mountains and the stars up above. Let them look at the beauty of the waters and the trees and flowers on earth. They will then begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education.
