We host short Pre-Trip Meeting before every trip to review the trip plan and program expectations. These meetings give you the opportunity to get involved the planning and ask questions. 

Pre-Trip Meetings are mandatory and will be hosted in-person or via Zoom. You must be available for the pre-trip meeting date to attend the trip. If you do not attend the pre-trip meeting, you may be dropped from the trip without a refund. 

Drugs, alcohol, and firearms are prohibited on all Outdoor Adventure Trips and programs. Some environments are very sensitive, so there may be additional restrictions as needed. 

Alcohol, drugs, and firearms can make the backcountry a very dangerous place. You put not only yourself at risk, but also other trip participants and leaders. If you bring substances or dangerous materials, you may be immediately removed from the trip and sent to Student Conduct upon return to UCF.
