Frequently Asked Questions:
To make sure no one is excluded from Y.E.T.I. adventures, we offer flexible pricing on every activity. When you register on our website you will be prompted to select a price that fits your budget with no minimum requirement. You will complete the registration and payment the same way no matter which price option you select. Y.E.T.I. does not share payment information with anyone including activity leaders, and the price you select will not affect your student’s experience in the program. If you still have questions, or trouble completing registration, please contact us via our “Contact us” page.
All Y.E.T.I. staff complete safety and group facilitation training in each activity they lead regardless of their previous experience. This includes obtaining a Wilderness First Aid certification and assisting on several adventures before leading their own.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all students and staff are required to wear a mask and maintain 6 feet of social distancing when possible. To help facilitate this, group size for all adventures is limited, all gear is sanitized in between activities, and gear is not shared among students during an activity.
Students should bring food and water for themselves, appropriate clothing for the weather, any medication they may need, and a positive attitude! Students do not need to provide their own activity-related gear.
Y.E.T.I. will provide all activity-related gear for each adventure. This includes everything from backpacks and sleeping bags to climbing equipment. Students are welcome to bring their own gear if they have it, but it is not required. If you have more questions about gear for a specific adventure please reach out to us via our “Contact Us” page.
Most Y.E.T.I. activities do not require any experience. We practice “challenge by choice” which means that no student will be required to participate in an activity they are uncomfortable with. If students do choose to challenge themselves in a new way, all of our staff and volunteers are trained to support them. Activities that do require some experience will describe the type and amount of experience necessary in the description.
