BSSC is committed to maintaining a pleasurable, comfortable and safe recreational environment and therefore expects its participants to adhere to a code of conduct with respect to other participants and agents carrying out services.  The following are examples of unacceptable conduct in BSSC activities:

  • Illegal activity
  • Threatening, intimidating, harassing or violent verbal or physical behaviors
  • Excessive, inappropriate or disruptive actions and/or profanity
  • Excessive drinking or disorderly conduct
  • Any other behavior which, in the sole discretion of BSSC, the tour escort and/or agents carrying out
    services, is deemed to be in any way inappropriate

Any person considered to be in violation of this code of conduct will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including expulsion from the current activity, banning from future activities and termination of membership, in each instance without refund.

Unless otherwise stated in the specific activity confirmation, the following applies:
  • All prices and arrangements are subject to change without notice.   Changes include, but are not limited to, a change in schedule, destination or cancellation of the entire trip if it is decided that circumstances, such as weather, pose potentially unsafe conditions.  BSSC is not responsible for additional costs which may be incurred as a result of these situations.
  • There is no refund on unused services.
  • Participants must be 21 or older.  Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis subject to the discretion of the BSSC Travel Director.
