Field Trip FAQs(back to top)
1) What should I wear?
- All adventure activities require closed toe shoes. If you are participating in paintball or horseback riding, long pants are required.
- We recommend that you dress in layers because you may get warm while participating in activities. In the case of cold weather, gloves are recommended.
2) What happens if it rains?
We have several options available in the event of bad weather:
- We can have an adventure in the rain! If the weather is not to the point of being unsafe, many of our activities can still operate in the rain. Adventure is out there!
- We rearrange the schedule. RVR has some indoor activities (climbing tower, ninja barn, archery tag, paintball, gym games) that can be substituted into your schedule in the event of inclement weather.
- We reschedule the trip. Sometimes it is best to reschedule a trip altogether, in which case we will gladly work with you!
3) What if I’m afraid of heights?
You aren’t alone! The RVR facilitators are experts at encouraging you to challenge yourself and overcome fears. Don’t let a fear of heights get in the way of an awesome experience. Why not give it a try?
4) I have a physical disability/injury, can I still participate?
Depending on the activity, we may be able to accommodate special needs and are happy to do so when possible! However, your safety is our number one priority and we will not allow you to participate in an activity that may cause physical harm. If you have a condition or a special request, please contact us before arriving so we can best accommodate your needs.
5) Can chaperones come?
- DAY TRIPS: We allow one free participating chaperone for every 10 students. Beyond this, we ask that any participating chaperones pay the activity fee.
6) Are your activities safe?
One way to guarantee fun is to prioritize safety, and RVR adheres to the highest standards in the camping industry. Visit our camp Activity Safety Page for more detailed information.
7) How long does each activity last and how many people can participate?
Most activities are between 1 and 2 hours. Participant numbers vary for each activity as well. Visit our Field Trip Activities page to see more detailed information.
