Club Policies

Our Mission

Randonnée Aventure’s mission is simply to unite adult outdoor enthusiasts for the purpose of facilitating group participation in outdoor activities. While RA may provide maps, instructions, advice and/or coordinate transportation, it does not closely supervise the actual activities. Consequently, it is essential that all participants be autonomous and capable of carrying out the selected activities independently. Furthermore, each participant is responsible for determining whether or not they are physically and mentally capable of the activities that they undertake. Notwithstanding the above, the club reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to refuse membership and/or to restrict participation in club activities if it believes that the prospective participant may not be capable of carrying out the activities offered in a safe and autonomous manner.

Trips to United States

For club policies regarding trips to US (including border crossing requirements), please consult page RA Trips to US.

Contact in Case of Accident

We recommend that all participants in club trips carry with them the name and phone number of a person to contact in case of an accident. It’s suggested that you write this information on the back of your RA membership card, and also include the phone number of your insurance company and your policy number.

Smoking Policy

The vast majority of RA members are non-smokers. Members who wish to smoke are therefore to do so only where others will not be affected.

Alcohol on Buses

In order to comply with bus company regulations, participants in RA trips are asked not to consume alcoholic drinks on our buses.

Change of Destination

Randonnee Aventure reserves the right, at its discretion, to change destinations at any time.

Occasionally, adverse weather, trail conditions, conflicting activities or other factors may make the advertised destination impractical. In such situations, an attempt will be made to substitute a suitable alternative destination or, if that is not possible, the trip may be cancelled. Refunds will be given if the trip is cancelled by the club.
