Ridgway Adventure · Outdoor activity courses for schools
Code of behaviour

Participants are expected to follow all safety instructions and advice, both written and verbal, and not to act in any way that may compromise the safety, enjoyment, learning or well being of themselves, other participants, or Ridgway Adventure staff.

We do not permit smoking while participants are in the charge of Ridgway Adventure. This includes travelling on transport organised by Ridgway Adventure or while travelling to an activity run by Ridgway Adventure. Smoking presents a fire risk at all times to our working environment, wooden buildings and other areas in our remote location. Please note that it is now illegal in the UK to smoke in public places.

We do not permit the consumption or possession of alcohol, drugs or banned substances when participants are in the charge of Ridgway Adventure. This includes travelling on transport organised by Ridgway Adventure or while travelling to an activity run by Ridgway Adventure. Participants who choose not to recognise this will not be allowed to take part in any activity and will be repatriated immediately.

We do not permit any form of anti-social behaviour, bullying, intimidation or rudeness to other participants or to our staff. Though rarely a problem, we will be firm with participants who show signs of anti-social or problem behaviour. If problem behaviour persists, we will reserve the right to send any participant home immediately at the expense of the organising body (e.g. School, College, University) and to charge for any additional costs incurred. It will be for the organising body to arrange for transport and/or accommodation for the person/s involved. No refunds will be considered for any participant sent home.

Participants will be required to pay for any damage caused by wilful behaviour. If damage to property or equipment occurs where nobody admits responsibility then we will seek collective payment from all persons deemed to be involved in the act of damage.
