RISK AND LIABILITY
Our programs involve time spent in the wilderness and are include an element of risk; participants should carry their own health and accident insurance, and must fill out a medical history form and sign a liability release form. Rites of Passage cannot assume responsibility for the behavior of other participants on our programs. People under age 18 may participate with parental permission. Those who take prescription medications, or have other health concerns, should check with their physicians before registering.
Rites of Passage carries liability insurance and obtains permits with land managers on Bureau of Land Management, National Forest Service, and National Park lands. One or more staff are certified Wilderness First Responders for all back country programs.
