BearCamp® Terms and Conditions

Itineraries and scheduling:

* Whenever possible, Great Alaska Adventures and Alaska BearCamp® (collectively shall be known as “operator” for terms of this form) endeavor to follow our itineraries as written, however they are only a guideline, and routinely our trips deviate from the written itinerary due to weather conditions, acts of god (storms, tides, Volcanoes and the like) or other unforeseen circumstances out of our control- collectively what is known as “the Alaska Factor”.  Our managers work diligently with you regarding changes as they arise, but operator strictly reserves the right to have final decision on any and all itinerary decisions.

Deposit Schedule:

50% of the trip total is due at the time of booking to confirm space.  Trip balance is due 60 days prior to your trip departure date.  Any trips not deposited by 30 days out can be cancelled by operator. Base rates do NOT included gratuities, Kenai Peninsula Borough sales tax and any and all other taxes that may be levied without advance notice to operator, or items of a personal nature..


Refunds and weather related delays

Travel delays can be a factor in any Alaska wilderness Travel. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND extra time in Anchorage prior to and after your time with us to account for any weather related delays, acts of god, etc.  Operator is strictly not responsible for any additional expenses due to travel delays of any kind.   Overnight BearCamp guests especially can be affected by travel delays, so don’t be caught unprepared.  Your safety is our #1 concern, and we will not fly if conditions do not safely allow it, regardless of the actions of other operators.  We often do not receive prohibitive weather information until the last minute, and thus decisions must be made quickly.

We highly recommend all BearCamp® clients read and understand our cancellations and refunds policy.   All BearCamp trips are weather dependent, and all who book this trip will be required to sign an acknowledgement of risk form, as well as to confirm they have read and understand our terms and conditions. Understanding that and planning for it will help you to better enjoy the experience).
