Expectations of Good Expedition Behavior
A big trip like this is a huge privilege to go on and we're super excited! However, it is expected that each group member contributes to the work associated with a trip like this. As a future club leader there is an expectation to not only be a positive participant but actively engage in the leadership development activities planned. This would include help doing the dishes, packing the gear/cars, helping with cooking, picking up garbage, being an active participant in group decisions etc. What's also important is having a good attitude and being flexible. For example, if a hike gets long or a car ride gets long or if weather doesn't co-operate with us or if something goes wrong, etc...... a good attitude and those positive vibes will make the trip more enjoyable for both you and the people you are with.
I understand, for the success of the trip, that I should impart excellent expedition behavior as described above.
Yes, I understand
No, I do not understand
Is there anything else you would like us as trip leaders to know or any questions or concerns you have?
What is a good phone number for us to reach you at?
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
