If you cancel –
Transferring Reservations –
All reservations are transferable to another person, but not another date. Transferring to another date is the same as cancelling.
Lodging/Camping Cancellation Policy -
For cancellations made up to 14 days in advance of your stay, Zoar Outdoor retains a 25% cancellation fee.
14 days or less in advance of your stay, you forfeit the entire cost of your lodging/camping unless you have cancellation insurance.
Cancellation Insurance allows you to cancel up to 24 hours before a trip or a lodging/camping stay and receive a full refund or transfer your reservation to another date. Cancellation insurance must be purchased at the time that an initial reservation is made and must be taken by all members of a group. No-shows on the date of the trip or last-minute cancellations are not covered by cancellation insurance.
To go at the prices listed, we must have at least 2 students enrolled in a scheduled clinic within 3 days of the clinic’s start date. If only one person is enrolled in a clinic, he or she may pay the private rate or may choose to cancel or reschedule. This does not apply to custom clinics.
Because zipping is a gravity sport, we must adhere to strict weight limits: minimum weight: 70 lbs; maximum weight: 250 lbs. We reserve the option to weigh guests when they arrive to determine eligibility for the canopy tour. Canopy tours leave on a regular schedule, so if you are late you will not be able to join your tour and you will not receive a refund. If, after registering for your tour, you decide not to participate due to fear, we will give you a raincheck. This raincheck will be good for you only, for use one time, within the current season. We encourage you to try again.
Tax will be added to rental and lodging reservations as required by state law. A processing fee of 2% is added to all reservations to support our continued investment in a state-of-the-art reservation system that allows us to enhance our guests' experiences.
While we have an excellent record, the sports of whitewater rafting, zip line canopy tours, canoeing, kayaking and rock climbing have inherent risks; accidents can and do occur. For this reason, we cannot assume responsibility for injury or loss of property. Participants in all activities will be required to sign a waiver stating that they are aware of the risks involved and are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Pregnant women are prohibited from participation in Zoar Outdoor activities. Those with health problems limiting their normal activities may be prohibited from participation at Zoar Outdoor’s discretion.
Zoar Outdoor can not be responsible for supervision of minors when they are not actively participating in our programs. At all time, supervision of minors is the responsibility of the group leaders, parents or guardians.
The following statement is required by state law: "Before placing your order, please inform your server if a person in your party has a food allergy."
The use of recreational drugs or alcohol is prohibited on all trips. If you arrive at Zoar Outdoor under the influence, you will be prohibited from participating in the day’s activity and no refund will be given.
River Trips (Rafting, Kayaking, Canoeing):
We zip rain or shine. The two weather conditions that cause us to cancel tours are excessive wind and lightning. In any case you should show up for your tour. Due to the unreliability of weather forecasts we do not cancel until just before a tour if we need to cancel. In the event of cancellation prior to your trip we will try to get you on another tour the same day or you have the option to refund or reschedule. If your trip is cancelled while you are on the course, you will receive a pro-rated refund or credit based on the location where you evacuated the course.
Rock climbing clinics go out in moderate rain; be prepared for wet weather. Please bring extra layers of synthetic or wool clothing. Cotton clothing is not appropriate for wet weather, since it does not keep you warm when it gets wet. We cancel clinics or move them indoors in the event of heavy rain. This decision will be made the morning of the clinic. In the event of lightning during a clinic, we come down immediately and we may decide to cancel. If we cancel your clinic, we will offer you a pro-rated refund or you may reschedule.
