Directions & Program Area Information
What to expect when you arrive
A staff member will meet you in the parking lot whenever you arrive.
We encourage individuals participating in our Guided Program Experiences to
arrive at least 15 minutes early. This will help ensure participants
have time to use the bathroom, complete paperwork and ask questions prior to
the start of each program.
Once paperwork has been completed and reviewed, a staff member will guide participants
to the program start area. This is just a short walk from the parking area.
Trained guides and facilitators will then conduct an orientation/introduction prior
to the activity. This is the perfect time to ask questions and ensure you understand
the activity entirely. All necessary gear is provided and no prior experience
: If you believe you might arrive late to your program, please call: 304.293.7407
