Miscellaneous:

m Plan to arrive early to fill out registration forms and waivers and get your equipment and safety briefing. Outdoor Adventures carries insurance, but, like ski lodges and skateboard parks, participants are required to sign a waiver to acknowledge potential risks of injury. Children younger than 18 need a parent or guardian’s written permission to play.

• You’ll be running and hiding in the woods, so wear old clothes, such as blue jeans, and avoid bright colors. High-top tennis shoes or sneakers are useful.

• Snacks, candy and soft drinks are for sale, but feel free to bring your own food. Picnic tables are available. If you’re hosting a group for a party, discuss bringing in pizza or other food with a manager. Besides welcoming walk-ons, Outdoor Adventures hosts birthday parties and corporate retreats.
