Six  Essentials to Spring Hiking
Always check with your doctor or pharmacist first 

  1. Keep your cool: Quick fix for heat exhaustion: make an electrolyte solution of 1 tsp.#* salt to 1 tbsp.#* sugar # dissolved in a liter of water, drink slowly.
  2.  Stay hydrated: Always carry plenty of water and to stop often and drink fluids—even if you don’t feel thirsty.
  3. Watch for ticks: Wear long pants and long sleeves and use a tick repellent for clothing and skin. Always do a spot check after hiking!
  4. Limit sun exposure: Safeguard skin and eyes with sunscreen, sunglasses and protective clothing. Treat sunburn with aloe vera gel.
  5. Blast those blisters: Carry moleskin, adhesive bandages, or gauze and tape. Cut a circle of moleskin and remove the center to relieve pressure on the blister.
  6. Tell bugs to bug off: Use a topical hydrocortisone 1% cream (or a cool mud paste) for insect bites and stings.* Ibuprofen or acetaminophen will help reduce swelling. *     #  unless  restricted                *If Doctor allows
NEW POLICY ON JOINT  ACTIVITIES (6-8-2017)

      There is  now  an  updated official   policy on  joint  activities.  This  policy  is  based on input  from  our insurance  company and  liability  concerns.
      

       Joint trips will only be permitted if the other   entity has   liability insurance. Proof of the coverage   must be obtained by the OCSJ leader.

      Participants in overnight activities charging money must be a member of OCSJ or a member of the participating club in the case of a joint trip with another club.

       The leader of a joint trip with another club must be a recognized leader of both clubs or have a co-leader who is a recognized leader of the other club.

        Our Insurance agent has stated all OCSJ members and members of the other organization involved in the joint activity must sign our Sign In &   Waiver form. 

        If other   group has a similar form and requests   OCSJ members sign   OCSJ members should follow their policy.

        The guest policy will still allow a non-member to come on 1 activity before membership is required.


     


OCSJ Non-member participation Policy

 

 

1.  OCSJ is a member organization. Membership funds pay for insurance and other Club overhead. However, prospective members and guests of OCSJ members may try one regular activity from each of our activity sections without joining.  Thereafter they must join to be eligible for the hundreds of activities and events available every year.

 

2. Participants on trips which charge money must be members of OCSJ, except where the trip is a joint trip with another club and the participant is a member of that club.  Members of OCSJ may bring guests on a day trip charging money.  Participants on overnight trips charging money must always be an OCSJ member.
