Event Information


Sign-up Process:

  • Read details below
  • Press "sign-up"
  • Rank your trip preference* and complete other information
  • Receive a sign-up confirmation email

*We do our very best to get each participant into their preferred trip, however weather and other circumstances can change trip availability and practicality.

Your Trip and SOAR:

Trips can be coupled with SOAR.  Sign up before April 17th and email us. We can help you link your preferred SOAR and Basecamp combination.  This is an opportunity for you to get your preferred SOAR date, but only if you are signed up for the Basecamp date that begins the day after your SOAR date ends.  (Note: SOAR normally ends at 12pm, so please do not schedule SOAR to end on the first day of your Basecamp Trip!)

After April 17th, you can link these on your own.  Just make sure your SOAR date ends the day before your Basecamp trip begins. It does not work to have them overlap. Some participants will choose to do SOAR and Basecamp independently—either way works.

Cancellation Policy: 

Your deposit is non-refundable.  Your trip balance is due 30 days prior to your trip. Any participant registering after 30 days before the trip must pay in full, unless differently arranged.  In the instance your trip is cancelled due to low enrollment, weather or any other circumstance, we will make every effort to help you change your trip.  If no other date is available, we will complete a full refund.  If you need to cancel your trip, you will not receive a deposit refund and no refunds will be given 30 days prior to your trip. 

Typical Itinerary:

Trips meet at 8:00am the first day and end at 4:30pm the last day. See a typical trip itinerary here.

After signing up you will receive a confirmation email with many details to help you prepare.
