We are all in this together.
Jana and the SUP YO Team
Please understand that safety is our #1 concern and responsibility. We believe that two of the best social distancing activities we can do is paddleboarding and hiking, so we plan to offer both to you this summer. Please note that we will be diligent in disinfecting equipment before and after each use and that all students will be anchored during classes more than 10′ apart. During hikes, we will keep our distance and practice social distancing. We encourage students to social distance and wear a mask, gloves and bring their own sanitary wipes on any event that is attended. As we carry out our stay at home order through May 18 and await Gov Baker’s decision to re-open Mass, here is our forecasted plan moving forward, safely, this season:
Cancelled Adventures: Opening Weekend, Back to Earth Retreat, Peru, Italy.
Local SUP Yoga Classes and Hikes: We forecast getting outside sometime between June 6-13, pending our re-opening plan guidelines. We will begin with a limited capacity in all classes and on all hikes through June 30. For this reason, class #s will be limited so we will be opening up the SUP schedule next week to allow for people to register early to secure space. Full refunds for cancellations up to 24 hours before the activity will be issued.
Travel and Retreats:
Adventure Travel trips to Peru and Italy have been moved to 2021. The website is now updated with the new dates and registration is open for both. We feel this is the smartest, safest decision for all. Our trip to Croatia is still ON and has been reduced to 50% capacity. Please visit our website for more info or to register for this trip. Full refunds for cancellations due to COVID-19.
Wilderness Retreats: Our Back to Earth Retreat in NH is cancelled for 2020. and Maine. Our Acadia retreat in July will resume as normal (20 max) as will our white water retreat in August (14 max). Full refunds for cancellations up to 14 days prior to the retreat will be issued.
