Pre-Trip Meetings

Cascades Adventures trips require a pre-trip meeting.  The purpose of these meetings is to discuss trip logistics, planning, equipment, risk management, curriculum, and any other information that will help make the trip a success.  If a student is unable to attend, that person must be in contact with Cascades Adventures program to make other arrangments.


Trip leaders may cancel a trip/outing at any point prior to the start/meeting time. The Cascades Adventures coordinator reserves the right to cancel any trip for reasons including but not exclusive to weather, lack of appropriate gear, and low group numbers. Participants will be notified as soon as possible by the trip leader or Cascades Adventures coordinator by email and/or phone. Outings may be cancelled as late as the start/meeting time.

The use of either drugs or alcohol is prohibited on Cascades Adventures trips.
