Get Ready for your TreeTop Adventure!

Thank you for planning your field trip with us! We can't wait to have your group climbing in the trees!

The information below will hopefully answer any questions you may have, so that you and your group come fully prepared for your TreeTop Adventure!

Important: Waiver Instructions

All climbers at TreeTop Adventures need to have a signed Liability Waiver on File. Parents/Guardians must sign a waiver for any minors under 18 years of age.

Your group may choose to use our Electronic Liability Waiver or our Hard Copy Waiver. Electronic Liability waivers remain on file and are valid for 1 year from the date they are signed. Hard Copy Waivers are valid only for the day of your Field Trip.

Electronic Liability Waiver:

When you book your reservation, we provide your group with a unique liability waiver link which can be accessed through your confirmation email. When guests complete the liability waiver using this link, submitted waivers will be automatically attached to your reservation. Please do not direct parents to complete the generic waiver link on our website.

To access your “trip specific”/unique electronic liability waiver link:

  • • Click "View/Manage Reservation" at the top of your confirmation email
  • • Go to "Waivers" tab
  • • Press the button, "Copy Link to Clipboard" and paste the url onto your website or any trip specific email communications to Parents/Guardians and climbing chaperones.
  • • You can keep track of submitted waivers by clicking the "Waivers" tab of your dashboard.
  • • If you are bringing a group that consists of one single age group (i.e. a grade level field trip)- Please bring a master roster that lists out the names of your climbers sorted alphabetically by first name.
  • • If you are bringing a camp group or other type of group with climbers of different ages, please organize your master roster by grade. If you are a camp group this means the grade your climbers will be entering in the fall. (i.e. Please group by 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th grade etc.)


  • If your program prefers to use Paper Waivers:
  • Click Here to download a PDF of our hard copy waiver.
  • • On the day of your trip please bring the following:
  • 1. A master roster listing out all of the climbers in your group including climbing chaperones. If you are bringing a camp group or other type of group with climbers of different ages, please organize your master roster by grade. If you are a camp group this means the grade your climbers will be entering in the fall. (i.e. Please group by 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th grade etc.)
  • 2. Please return only the 3rd page (signature page) of the waiver. Please organize the waivers in the same order as the names listed on the master roster. This organization helps us quickly check in your group and hand out appropriate field trip climbing passes.

  • • Long hair needs to be tied back.
  • • No loose jewelry - all jewelry should be taken off while climbing to ensure nothing gets caught in your equipment or lost.

  • • You are welcome to bring food and drinks with you into the park. We recommend bringing some snacks and plenty of water!

  • Course Availability & Age Guidelines

    TreeTop Adventures has 10 trails that span 4 levels of difficulty. The chart below shows the 4 course levels, how many trails are available at each level, and which trails climbers can access based on their age:

  • • Please remember, you will need to climb the courses in order: beginner or intermediate (yellow or green) then difficult (blue) and then expert (black).

  • • TreeTop Adventures staff reserve the right to close courses based on weather or other hazards. The Platform Monitor will inform you of any course closures.

  • • Once you are finished climbing, you'll return to the black mats where our staff will help take your gear off.

  • climbing chart with age guidelines

  • "Supervised from Ground" - Climber can be by themselves on the trail, but needs to have a parent/guardian supervising them from the ground and guiding them verbally when needed.

  • "Climb with Adult" - Climber needs to have an adult (18+) accompany them on the trail.

  • "NA" - Not allowed on the trail due to the difficulty and height of the elements. No exceptions can be made.

  • "Solo" - Can climb on the trail without an adult or active supervision on the ground. Climbers under 18 still need a parent/guardian to be in the grounds of TreeTop Adventures.
  • Field Trip Closing Procedures

    Based on when your group needs to leave the park, our staff will begin to close trails in order to allow climbers enough time to complete the trails they are on.

    Five of our trails (Black, both Blue trails, and two Green Trails) will be closed to your group 40 minutes before you need to leave the park, in order to allow students/campers enough time to complete those more difficult trails before your group needs to leave.

    Cancellation/Inclement Weather Policy

    Field Trip Inclement Weather Policy:

    We are open rain or shine! Please arrive dressed and prepared for the weather.

    We have decided to not require a financial commitment/deposit for your reservation, however, we do ask that you make a formal commitment to this trip date. Please understand that we will be booking staff and turning away other groups once this date has been finalized.

    In the event of a forecast of unfavorable weather leading up to your trip, we request that you notify us within 48 hours of your trip to discuss possibly rescheduling your trip.

    In the event of extreme weather (thunder/lightning or high winds), the courses may have to temporarily close--similar to a swimming-pool--until the weather passes. TreeTop Adventures staff have full discretion on high wind closings and will inform climbers of any closures at the main platform.

    If a full park closing due to weather should occur during your visit, you will be given the option to extend your ticket time and wait it out (depending on availability), or receive a prorated voucher (depending on the time left in your climb) for your next visit.

    Payment

    The most up to date invoice for your reservation can be found by clicking the “View/Manage Reservation” link in your confirmation email and selecting the “Payments” tab.
