Trip Planning

Before You Go

Your trip doesn’t start when your plane takes off and heads overseas.

The real beginning is when you’re huddled over a computer, agonizing over which flight to book, about the logistics when you land, and what your budget will look like. It’s that string of conversations and decisions that really kicks thing off. In order to make the most of your expedition a little planning will ensure you have an enjoyable time.

In order to participate in any Outdoor Leadership Institute (OLI) program, participants must complete the appropriate waivers and medical information forms. All participants must review, complete, and sign these forms. Participants under the age of 18 will need a parental/guardian signature. Once completed, forms must be scanned and sent to your staff representative. Participation is contingent upon completion of these forms, as well as successful review and screening of the forms by an authorized OLI staff member.
