Why do activities leaders ask all those questions?
When you sign up for Chapter activities, our leaders ask questions about your experience, fitness level, and equipment because we want all participants to enjoy the trip. If you are not fit or adequately experienced for an outing, or have inadequate or inappropriate equipment, you and the group may not enjoy the experience. Lack of fitness, experience, or equipment may also endanger you, our leaders, and others. Asking these questions should inspire confidence that we are working to provide a safe and enjoyable trip for all. If our leaders feel you are not ready to join us for a specific activity, ask for recommendations for more suitable activities or workshops. This will enable you to gain the experience, fitness level, and skills necessary for an exciting, invigorating, and enjoyable growth process!
