The National Park Tour
Dates: May 28-June 1 | June 4-8 | June 18-22
Our experiences are an adventure. While a lot of planning goes into our trips, there are certain elements that are out of our control. We encourage you to maintain a positive attitude and be flexible while on the trip (it goes a long way). We ask that you be respectful to the other participants and to those we volunteer alongside of. Our National Park tour is jam-packed! We see a lot in a short amount of time. HAVE FUN. Laugh and enjoy the experience. It goes fast!
We encourage an atmosphere of trust, honesty, integrity, and openness. We're all about building community and fostering new relationships.
We reserve the right to send participants home based on the following: use of illegal drugs or paraphernalia, stealing or vandalism, possession or use of any weapons, guns, explosive devices or knives, sexual harassment, and verbal harassment.
NOTE: While we do our best to adhere to the planned itinerary, there are certain elements that are out of our control. Volunteer opportunities, weather, travel times, etc. make itinerary subject to change.
Please e-sign this mandatory waiver as soon as possible.
