Trip Time: _9:00am-12:00pm_
Important Information
The Nature of Outdoor Programming: Outdoor programs challenge both mind and body and involve an element of
risk. To manage this reality, Outdoor Programs has developed a risk management strategy that encompasses and
supports all aspects of our trips, classes, and other programming. Outdoor Programs is committed to investing time
and resources into these practices because the health and well-being of our community is our highest priority.

Trip Meeting: Please meet at our boat house at Mission Creek at the time indicated above. Directions are enclosed.
 Limited parking is available on Channel St and also on Berry Street on the opposite side of the creek from our
Boathouse. Allow 5-10 minutes if walking from the 4th Street bridge to our boathouse. If walking from Mission Bay
parking garage, allow 15-20 minutes walk time. Risk and liability forms are included in this confirmation and must be
read, signed, and brought with you to the trip in order to participate. The Leaders will collect all paperwork at the start
of the trip. Those without paperwork will not be allowed to participate. Please arrive and be READY to go by the time
indicated. Late arrivals may not be able to participate.

Itinerary: After a group introduction, we will spend time learning about the kayaks, paddling skills & techniques, and
boating etiquette. We will get on the water as soon as possible. Our paddle will depart from the UCSF boathouse east
through Mission Creek, under 4th & 3rd Street bridges, into McCovey Cove and Northwest along the San Francisco
shore. The route and destinations of these paddles can vary based on weather, group size and ability. Please talk to
your leaders if you have any questions.

Equipment/Clothing: The weather can vary during paddling. Please wear polypropylene/wool/fleece/pile in layers,
and bring a windproof layer to wear on top. Do not wear cotton on the water. Wear shoes that can get wet. Hats
are great for staying warm on the water. Sunglasses (with leash) and a bottle of water (no glass) are also
recommended. You may want to bring additional dry clothes for after the trip. Outdoor Programs will provide double-
closed sea kayaks, personal floatation devices, spray skirts and paddles.

Cancellation Policy: Credit only is issued for all Outdoor Programs activities, less a $30 processing fee, when
requested at least 7 days prior to a class, trip or the pre-trip meeting for all weekend trips. Sorry – no refunds or credits
can be issued for Outdoor Programs after the deadlines stipulated above for any session, program, lesson, activity, or
pre-trip meeting. Credit will be issued as a Gift Card for the amount paid less the $30 cancellation fee, and may be
applied to any Millberry/Bakar program or service. A full refund will be issued ONLY when Outdoor Programs has to
cancel a class or trip. To continue providing our services at such affordable prices we must follow this policy.

Trip Cancellation and Destination Changes: At Outdoor Programs we are dedicated to the success and safety of all
of our programs and participants. Occasionally this requires changing the itinerary after an outing has begun. These
changes are the nature of learning and exploring in the outdoors. While we will always do our best to accommodate
the goals of the outing, we are not able to offer any refunds or credits for changes that occur after the trip has
commenced. Thank you for your understanding.
