PARTICIPATION IN DEER HILL PROGRAMS:
Deer Hill is not wilderness therapy; while a little nervousness or apprehension is natural, we are not an appropriate choice for individuals dealing with behavioral, motivational, or rehabilitation issues.
Please read through the following list of essential eligibility requirements (“EEC”). These requirements are not intended to be exclusionary, but to honestly identify the basic and fundamental elements of participation – integrally tied to safety and risk management considerations.
These EEC do not encompass all criteria for participation in a Deer Hill expeditions (“DHE”) program. As detailed in our Terms of Agreement, an applicant’s final enrollment and participation in a DHE program is conditioned on, among other things, DHE’s receipt of full payment and receipt and review of all completed and signed forms. In addition and importantly, these EEC are intended to be helpful and constructive for all participants who are considering attending our programs. However, these EEC are only intended to give an overall ‘snapshot’ of EEC for DHE activities and do not encompass every criteria or function of the various activities you may encounter on a given program.
If you have any questions or concerns about the applicant’s ability to meet the criteria, please call the Deer Hill office. We would be happy to answer your questions and give you more details about the demands of Deer Hill in general, and details regarding specific programs.
