The Adventure Group is pleased to be able to help coordinate and offer events for its members. However, event leaders are amateur volunteers, not paid professionals. In addition, the nature of outdoor activities exposes you to hazards such as cliffs, fast moving water, injuries, temperature extremes, insects, poisonous plants, etc. As a result, you need to take responsibility for your own safety while participating in any event that is coordinated by the group. We do have some reasonable safety guidelines that members are asked to adhere to in order to help insure the safety and enjoyment of the events. However, you should familiarize yourself with appropriate safety guidelines, which are available from numerous sources such as the National Park Service, retail stores like REI, and other similar organizations. In addition, you should bring any equipment necessary to ensure your personal safety and comfort when attending any Adventure Group event.
