The safety of our guests is of the upmost importance to us, that is why Program Staff watch weather and road conditions very closely to determine if a program should be cancelled. Typically, unless interstates and highways leading into the city are closed by the Highway Patrol camp will remain open. In the event of a NovusWay Cancellation a full refund will be given, all other instances will be evaluated on a case by case basis by request.
