Outdoor Adventure in the World of COVID-19
As we move forward in this new era of COVID-19, we want to let you know that your safety is the No. 1 Priority for all of us in Nicolet’s Outdoor Adventure Program and at the college as a whole.
To that end, all classes currently have a maximum of 10 people, including instructors. Any classes that have an indoor component have been moved to larger classrooms to accommodate at least six feet of physical distancing.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own cloth face coverings and hand sanitizer. The college will also have masks and sanitizer available for those who do not have their own. All participants are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings when in indoor settings and when practicable when outdoors.
All participants will also need to sign an Acceptance of Risk form and complete the Health Questionnaire and bring those to class. Note that there is also an Assumption of Risk form for minors under the age of 18. That form will need to be signed by a parent or legal guardian. Links to the forms are below.
“We all know things can change fast and we are monitoring the situation daily,” said Terry Rutlin, Outdoor Adventure Coordinator. “If conditions improve with the COVID-19 virus, we will increase the maximum number of students for each class as appropriate. Conversely, a local surge in case numbers will trigger additional safeguards and or restrictions.”
Strenuosity Rating - The number after each course title lets you know how strenuous we rate each course.
S1 = Not strenuous, most likely a stationary experience.
S2 = Slightly strenuous, does not require prior physical conditioning
S3 = Some physically demanding aspects, requires some endurance
S4 = Challenging and requires a good physical condition
The Right Boat
Which boat is right for each class?
C = Canoes Only
SK = Sea Kayak (16-18 Foot)
RK = Recreational or Shorter Kayak (12-14 Foot)
