Cancellation Policies


In order to minimize our environmental impact, maintain facilitator-to-participant ratios, meet permit criteria, and transportation logistics, OP trips are often programmed for small groups. Late cancellations can seriously impact our ability to accommodate others and recover costs.

  • Refunds will be given for cancellations made 1 week prior to the trip leaving for day trips and 2 weeks prior to the trip leaving for extended trips.

Trips are open on a first-come, first-serve basis. Pre-registration and pre-payment is required. For more information, e-mail outdoor.pursuits@unco.edu. To sign-up, visit the Campus Recreation Gear Shop.
