Course Information: (read everything below to make sure that you are prepared for this trip)

Quest courses are designed for beginners, so you will not be expected to demonstrate high levels of ability, but they provide a physical, psychological, and emotional challenge.  Courses occur in areas that often involve steep terrain, rough and narrow trails, wet or muddy conditions, and inclement weather. Most Quest activities are movement-oriented activities involving some strenuous activity. Quest staff will provide you with a safety briefing to prepare you for the activities and any safety issues you might encounter or skills you need.

Quest will provide all necessary equipment including helmets, ropes, harnesses, and first aid supplies.  You may bring your own equipment and use it with the approval of Quest staff.  If you need boots, Quest will have boots to provide for this course.

Instructors

Quest instructors are professional outdoor leaders, students, interns, and members of the community.  They are trained in specific outdoor pursuits, leadership, and first aid.  All are involved in on-going outdoor leadership training with Quest.

Policies

For safety reasons, participants are required to abstain from alcohol and non-prescription drugs while participating in Quest Activities.  Please respect the rights and health of others with regard to smoking.  Participants will be held responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged equipment belonging to Quest.

Safety

Safety is a primary concern during any Quest course.  A safety briefing precedes each activity, where risks and protection against these risks are explained.  Participants are expected to abide by all safety rules and procedures defined by Quest staff.
