The upcoming trip schedule is “tentative” and is subject to change for any reason. Trips are also subject to being canceled due to low participant turnout. The deadline to signup for a trip is typically the Wednesday before the weekend of the event. Contact us for questions about the kayak rolling sessions.

Sign up for any of our trips at the UREC Shop.

Reserving Your Spot

Your spot is not reserved on any trip until you have:

  • Paid the trip fee/deposit
  • Completed the University Recreation Release of liability/medical form

Pre-Trip Meetings

Pre-trip meetings and preparation are mandatory for all participants. If you cannot attend during the scheduled time, it is your responsibility to reschedule with your trip leader(s). You may be prevented from going on a trip due to non-participation in pre-trip meetings and preparations.


Deposits toward any/all trips or courses are non-refundable. Deposits are non-refundable because planning requires reservations and preparations for a set number of participants. If that number changes, it increases expenses for the remaining participants.

Cancellation Procedures 

Unforeseen Circumstances: Due to the unpredictability of nature and other unforeseeable circumstances, trip locations, times, dates and the method of travel are subject to change with or without notification.

  • UA Outdoor Recreation reserves the right to cancel a program due to inclement weather, natural disasters or extenuating circumstances. In the event a program must be canceled, a full refund will be provided.
  • Participant cancellations/registration withdrawal 10 business days prior to an event or trip will result in a 90% refund or credit. However, a 10-percent administrative fee will be charged. Refunds for cash and check transactions will be in the form of a check issued by the UA Accounts Payable Department (this may take several weeks to process). Credit/Debit transactions will be refunded to the original purchasing credit/debit account.
  • Participant cancellations/registration withdrawal on a trip or course with less than ten business days notice will result in no refund.
