Recreation at Your Leisure
If a scheduled trip does not fit into the time frame available for our customers, be it family or group, ODR will tailor a trip that does fit into their time frame. Keeping high deployment and high workloads in mind, ODR will provide recreational opportunities to those that may not have had the chance to participate otherwise. There is NO extra fee associated with this program, in fact, if an individual schedules 10 or more persons on their private group trip they go for free unless it is an outside contracted trip where they will only pay at cost. Please note that private group trips must be scheduled within the open date availability of the established trip schedule and must have a minimum of 6 customers. Private group trip ideas include any and all current established trip ideas to include such trips as horseback riding, bike riding trips, ropes course outings, hiking trips, deep sea fishing trips, ski trips, via ferrata trips and many more high adventure trips. We are limited only by your trip idea imagination!
