We’re in the kid business and our goal is to create trips of a lifetime. Here at Moondance, we strive to deliver amazing adventures, the opportunity to travel the world, and the chance to further develop one’s love for the outdoors. In doing so, we prepare well in advance for the success of our programs and an integral component of the preparation of our programs involves the collection and organization of data on Moondance applicants and their families. Obviously, the more we know about our students, the better we can customize and improve their experience. As we plan our programs, we will ask you for personal information (some mandatory, some optional); in turn, we promise to protect this information and ensure that it remains confidential. We also promise never to sell your information to anyone.
What We Ask For & Why
You can enroll in a Moondance program by enrolling online or by contacting our admissions team in the Moondance office. At that time, we will ask you to provide some basic information (such as your name, your child’s name/gender, their school, your phone number, and credit card number and expiration date) so that we can identify you, follow up with you and process your application and/or enrollment. In some instances, we may need more information than what is traditionally required required for a standard enrollment, as we strive to offer an unparalleled level of customer service. Below is a description of some of the extra information we may require:
We understand that many people prefer or are required to follow certain diets. While many of our programs take place in a backcountry setting, we try to accommodate these choices and needs whenever possible. To accomplish this, your dietary preferences must be communicated with our office and recorded in your application. This information is then transferred to your Moondance leaders and guides, who will in turn make the appropriate adjustments and/or contact the various suppliers and facilities to ensure that your requirements can be met.
Physical and Health Details
We need to obtain information about your child’s age, gender, height and general health so that we can provide him/her with the appropriate equipment, care, and ensure their personal health and safety. Medical forms and a physical will be required prior to your child’s summer program with forms to be submitted to the Moondance office.
Flight and Passport Information
We require your child’s flight information in order to orchestrate and organize airport retrieval and/or drop-off services with the Moondance leaders. For international trips, we request passport information because it is required by our administrative office and often local service providers to facilitate your further transportation while on a Moondance trip.
Moondance Adventures constantly strives to provide you and your children with the highest level of personal service. Our admissions team will record any special requests or preferences that are specified at the time of your application and/or enrollment. This information is passed on to your student’s leaders and enables the organization to meet and exceed all of your expectations. Also, our leaders may pass on information about special requests or preferences expressed by students while on a trip. We maintain a record of this information to ensure that on subsequent programs, these personal preferences continue to be accommodated. We also keep a record of past trips your child has taken with us, which allows us to understand the type of activities or trips your child prefers, leadership characteristics, and to determine what information (i.e. about new or revised programs) your family might find interesting.

From time to time, Moondance will retain the assistance of external service organizations to help us understand our students, travellers, and any trends in our industry. We may disclose some of your personal information to those companies solely for the purpose of conducting research and analysis on behalf of Moondance Adventures. We use contractual and other means to protect your information while our agents are processing it. We are always interested in how our students and families first heard about Moondance, and we may ask you for information about how you discovered us and what types of media you watch and read. We gather this information to enable us to understand which marketing and advertising tools are most effective for our business.

Our Promise to You

The information we request from you will enable us to provide you with the highest levels of personal service on every Moondance trip. We will not disclose any personal information to any external company or person, except as described above, without a family/parent’s informed consent unless we are required by law to do so. With the growth of electronic media, we recognize that it is necessary to take further steps to protect the privacy of the individual. We maintain the security and confidentiality of the information disclosed by our families according to the strictest standards. We are continually looking for additional ways to ensure that the personal information we hold is secure and used in a responsible and respectful manner.
