There is always a risk when adventuring outdoors but NAC / WAO has strong policies and procedures in place to mitigate and manage risk as much as possible. Camp WĀO staff and partners are experienced in outdoors and group management, trained in their discipline, and 100% committed to your safety. No one will be forced to do anything they do not feel comfortable doing. Participant safety is NAC / WAO’s #1 priority. Additionally, there is a Camp Nurse and Medical Volunteers, who has at least an EMT certification and is there to provide general support and basic first aid if needed. If you’re still concerned, please reach out to our Team who will be happy to discuss this further with you.
