1 Outdoor activities by their nature involve inherent risk. Every effort is made to provide programs that respect emotional, social, intellectual, and physical safety. However, it is impossible to anticipate all factors that impact safety. Students acknowledge their understanding of and agreement to participate in potentially unsafe programs by signing appropriate risk management forms.
