What if there is inclement weather during our challenge course program?

If inclement weather is expected in advance of your program, Campus Recreation may cancel the program. If Campus Recreation cancels due to weather, we will use reasonable efforts to provide an alternate date or provide a full refund if requested. In case of inclement weather, the day of your event, facilitators will make a decision on how or if to continue. Programs will be facilitated rain or shine unless dangerous conditions present themselves, in the sole discretion of Campus Recreation. We do not offer refunds to groups that encounter inclement weather the day of their program.

Day of your event: In case of inclement weather the day of your event, our facilitators will make a decision on how or if to continue your program. In most cases, your program will continue under the course pavilion. Programs will be facilitated, rain or shine, unless dangerous conditions persist. We do not offer refunds to groups that encounter inclement weather the day of their program, but we will make every effort to complete it in its entirety.


Will all the people in my group climb?

We understand that many groups expect to have at least one climb during their program. Please keep in mind that the average time per climber is about 10 minutes. We have no way of knowing if your members will all climb quickly. In fact, those people who take 15+ minutes to climb may get the most out of the elements.

Once you provide proof of non-profit status, such as 501c3 or DR14 you will qualify for the non-profit rates.
