It’s Worth Noting
It is important to consider the safety aspects of any activity and to address the concerns that each one presents.
Be aware of your environment, hazards and terrain, medical issues and abilities of your group, readiness, clothing, etc, to prevent the potential for any harm.
In particular, we wish to underline your responsibility as a program provider to ensure the physical, emotional and mental health and well-being of your group.
It’s too easy just to focus on the potential for physical harm with many experiential and adventure-based activities. The emotional and mental dimensions of any group-based activity are often overlooked, and yet, they can do the most long-term harm.
