Reservation Policy
Groups must make reservations at least 7 days in advance of their scheduled challenge course session. Recreational Services will send an email to confirm each reservation and the reservation details.

Cancellation policy
Groups must declare the number of participants who will be in attendance at least 7 days prior to their program. This declaration of attendance is necessary to schedule staff and program the day's events.

Fees will be based on actual attendance or 90% of the declared attendance, whichever amount is larger. Example: You declare 30 students will attend and only 17 arrive. You will be billed for 27 students since 90% of 30 is 27.

Unless you cancel in writing in advance, you will be billed for the above-mentioned fees. Groups must cancel a minimum of 7 days in advance. Notice of cancellation should be made in writing by email to Travis Redeker at tredeker@k-state.edu or by fax at 785-532-4983.

The exception to this policy is in the case of inclement weather. In cases where inclement weather interferes with or cancels a group's reservation, the billing will be adjusted or cancelled to account for the inclement weather's affects on the reservation.

Rec Services will make the call on whether to cancel a program due to weather. Note that the course is covered in mulch, so rain or thunderstorms prior to a program has no affect on whether to cancel or not.
