WHAT IS A “COOPERATIVE ADVENTURE?”

Cooperative Adventure trips are planned and coordinated by Outdoor Adventures volunteer trip leaders. Trip costs are shared equally by all participants. All group planning, leadership and risks are shared by all participants equally.  Because Outdoor Adventures trips are exciting, physically demanding, and take place in an environment over which we have no control, they can be potentially dangerous. As a participant on a Cooperative Adventure Trip, you must personally accept these conditions and assume full responsibility for your own safety and well-being. Trip size is limited, and registration plus payment is on a first come, first served basis. A non-refundable deposit is required when you sign-up to secure a spot for you. Each multi-day trip has a pre-trip meeting, and your attendance is strongly recommended. If you can not attend the meeting, please call to schedule a time to meet with one of the trip leaders.

UNIVERSITY POLICIES:

University of Utah policies prohibit alcohol, controlled substances, and firearms. These items are not permitted on Cooperative Adventure Trips. Participants are not required to have health insurance, but it is strongly encouraged.
