Risk Management

IN DETERMINING COURSE AREAS, DESIGNING ITINERARIES, HIRING STAFF, AND WORKING WITH CONTRACTORS, SAFETY IS OUR PARAMOUNT CONCERN.

At Dragons, we believe that a healthy engagement with risk is essential for learning and growth.  We also know that stepping out of your comfort zone and traveling may feel daunting. While real risk can exist at all junctures of our travel experiences, our job is to understand and minimize those risks, and to respond with exacting professionalism and care if an incident arises.

Traveling with Dragons not only provides a high quality educational travel experience, but also a valuable safety net. Having worked with students over 500,000 + field-days, we’ve developed an expertise in managing risks and responding to emergencies. We have a dedicated emergency response team on call 24/7 and trip leaders trained in wilderness emergency medicine, as well as shared operational procedures that ensure the highest level of attention and care.

Adult programs vary in physical rigor and all participants should be in reasonably good physical condition prior to attending any Dragons outing. As some journeys are more strenuous than others, prospective participants should carefully read individual program descriptions for details.

At Dragons, we have an excellent safety record and we take pride in the attention we give to participants’ health and safety. Please read all our program materials thoroughly, and call us if you have any questions.
