Register at the Service Desk of the Health, Leisure, and Sports Facility. Full payment must be made with registration. There is no registration deadline, i.e. as soon as a trip is posted on the web or elsewhere you can register, and registration will continue possibly up to a day before trip departure unless the trip has filled.
All trips require some preparation. Much of the needed information is covered in the trip handouts, which participants receive at the pre-trip meeting. More general information is available in the trip preparation section of our online support webpages.
Certain indicated trips have a pre-trip meeting to cover necessary safety information. Participants are required to attend the pre-trip meeting, unless receiving permission in advance, otherwise you will lose your spot, no refund. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are held the Thursday before a trip at 6pm in the Conference Room.
Refund requests must be made prior to the refund deadline, which is the seventh day before a trip starts, unless otherwise indicated. Trips cancelled due to weather or insufficient participation will be refunded. You can register after the refund deadline.
