Questions from New Adventurers:
Do we have to pay for each hike?
No. The Friday evening Adventures are free to everybody. All of the Saturday Adventures are included in the $4.00 fee. This lets you to choose your Adventure and talk with the leader to be sure that the Adventurer is right for you.
Do we have to decide which hike when we sign up?
No. The Adventure leaders will be available to answer your questions before each hike. They will be holding signs to help identify your Adventure. If you have any questions or concerns about how difficult or wet or Xtreme the Adventure will be, this is your chance to ask the leader. If it doesn’t sound like what you are looking for, then go ask about another Adventure. We want this to be an enjoyable learning and fun outdoors Adventure for everybody.
Do I (mother) have to go with them on the hikes?
Yes. A responsible adult must accompany the kids. The leaders will be teaching and exploring and leading the group. They will not be able to watch all the kids at all times.
