First Descents is committed to bringing communities together through our local Tributaries. Our goal is not only to put on “official” Tributary programs, but also connect you with other FDers in your area. With this in mind, please read over our ground rules for signing up for this trib event.
These spots are coveted. If you cannot make this trip, please do not sign up. If you sign up then cancel, not only are you costing FD money, but more importantly you’re taking a spot away from someone else in your community who wants to go. For these reasons, if you cancel within 5 weeks of the program, we will suspend your participation from official Trib programs for a year.
What about cancelling for cancer/health related reasons? If you know that you may have health complications within that 5 week window, please reach out to us as soon as possible and we’ll work with you to figure out the best option. We know that sometimes these situations are unavoidable. The sooner you can let us know, the sooner we can come up with a plan for you to attend or to backfill your spot if we need to.
If you are not selected:
We select participants in as fair of a way as possible. That being said, we often have many more people apply for Trib programs than we have spots. If you are not selected for this program, we will move you up the list for the next time around. Along these lines, don’t get discouraged, get outside! We love seeing groups of our alumni OutLivingIt on their own. We’re currently working on resources for your local area to help you plan adventures on your own. If you need any tips, tricks, etc. shoot us an email or give us a call.
