You can check in to your residence hall on Sunday, time TBA. You must come to the Eccles Health, Wellness, and Athletic Center (HWAC) reception desk to get your ID card and check in before going to your residence hall. There will be no residence hall check-in for the Outdoor Experience on Monday. We can store baggage for students arriving on Monday morning until they can check in to their residence hall after returning from the trip.
Outdoor Experience starts at 9:00 a.m. on Monday. Please meet us in the lobby of HWAC with all of your trip gear packed and ready to go. Backpackers and Packrafters will do a little re-packing, and everyone who is borrowing gear from the program will get what they need at this time. We'll start the morning off with a light breakfast and trip orientations. All trips will leave campus around noon.
Airport Shuttle Information
For students traveling by air, the Outdoor Program will provide shuttles periodically throughout the day on Sunday. If you are interested in a shuttle, send your flight number and arrival time to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The shuttle will arrive every three quarters of the hour, beginning at 10:45 a.m. until 6:45 p.m. For example, for flights arriving between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., the shuttle will arrive at 10:45 a.m.
We will be in a Westminster Van and will be at passenger pick up 4 at the specified time. To get to the passenger pick up lane, exit the airport after baggage claim, walk outside and cross to the farthest lane, right before the parking garage—this is the passenger pickup lane. You will see large numbers overhead—you want to make your way to stop 4.
If your flight is delayed, don’t worry—you'll can catch the next shuttle. If at all possible, please call us at 801.832.2866 to let us know about delays. If we don't hear from you, we will wait for you at passenger pick up. Don’t stress if it takes you a few extra minutes to get your bag; we'll wait for about 15 minutes after the pickup time if we don't see you.
If you cancel before the registration deadline (July 10) you can receive a full refund. If you cancel after July 10, but before July 24, you will be refunded 50% of the trip cost. The 50% that we keep may be applied as a credit toward future trips. After July 24, no refunds will be given, but 50% of the trip fee can be applied to future trips.
If a participant needs to leave the trip for a policy violation either on or off campus, that participant is responsible for the cost of evacuation. If a participant needs to be evacuated for other reasons, responsibility for the cost of evacuation will be assigned on a case-by-case basis.
