Adventure Trip Guidelines
Current FSU students, faculty, staff, and non-students who have previously taken an OP trip, can register immediately by signing into Rec Connect with their FSU login. Go to Programs, then select the Outdoor Pursuits category to show the list of OP trips. Once you login to Rec Connect (upper right of screen), students will see discounted pricing with each trip. You can sign-up and pay immediately in Rec Connect.
Non-students who are first-time OP participants should sign-up for a Rec Connect account to register online. Account creation is a two-step process in which you must confirm the account from an email sent after you sign-up. Once you have an account, you can register online in Rec Connect.
Payment is due at registration. Cash, check payable to FSU, or credit/debit card are accepted at the FSU Reservation for in-person registrations.
There are NO refunds.
For paid adventure trips, cancellations must be received by 5:00 pm at least 3 days prior to the trip departure (i.e. Wednesday for a Saturday departure). An 80% credit is available only when the space on the trip is filled by another participant. If the space cannot be filled, no credit is given. All cancellations by participants are assessed a 20% cancellation fee, hence only 80% is available for credit.
For free adventure trips, cancellations must be received by 5:00 pm at least 3 days prior to the trip departure. Late cancellations are assessed a $10 cancellation fee, collected from the participant or assessed to the student’s University account.
Adventure trips may be cancelled by the program if minimum registration numbers are not achieved prior to the start date. In this case, a full credit or refund will be issued. If a trip is cancelled by FSU Campus Recreation or due to weather, participants will be contacted regarding reschedule options.
Contact the Outdoor Pursuits staff at 850-644-2449 to cancel a registration or for more information.
Drugs, alcohol, and firearms are prohibited on all Outdoor Pursuits trips and programs.
Alcohol, drugs and firearms can make the backcountry into a very dangerous place. You put not only yourself at risk, but also other trip participants and leaders. Participants will be required to sign a Drug and Alcohol Policy Consent Form upon trip registration.
Transportation is provided for all participants on an Outdoor Pursuits trip to and from FSU campus.
For most trips, we hold a short pre-trip meeting to cover everything that will happen on your adventure trip. It gives us a chance to meet the group and go over expectations. And, it gives you the opportunity to get involved with some of the planning and ask questions. You are required to attend the pre-trip meeting. Meal planning, equipment fitting and other timely information is covered, so don’t miss it.
All staff is trained in First Aid and CPR. The cost of any rescue or treatment beyond first aid will be borne by the participant.
Outdoor Pursuits is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal equipment.
