arrow  Additional Information

  • Recreation personnel in charge of each program will have the final decision in all matters where participant safety is concerned.

  • Due to the strenuous nature of some of our activities, program leaders reserve the right to deny a participant entry into a program if they deem the participant is not physically fit enough to partake in said program. If the participant has already paid a fee, this fee will be refunded in accordance with our refund policy.

  • Alcoholic beverages are not allowed on recreation programs.

  • All individuals must realize there may be some unavoidable hazards involved in all recreation programs. At the start of the program you will be asked to sign a Waiver of Liability Form. In order to participate in the program, this form is mandatory.

  • It is the participant’s responsibility to inform staff members of any medical problems that may be a limiting factor to your participation in a program. Please consult your doctor if you are not sure.

  • Please note all return times are approximate. The actual time depends on the ability of the participants, prevailing weather, field conditions, and the unknown.

  • WARNING! Ticks may be present on all outdoor programs. To protect yourself from Lyme Disease, we recommend participants spray their clothing with insect repellent which contains DEET and wear light color clothes. Tuck your pants into boots or socks. Always change your clothes as soon as you get home and check yourself over closely for ticks. Deer ticks are present 12 months a year.

  • WARNING! The rabies epidemic is now present throughout the state. Enjoy wildlife from a distance, report any wildlife acting strangely to park staff.

  • All children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, except programs specifically for children.

  • If program is specifically for children, then it is for children only.
