ALP Information

How do I apply to the Adirondack Leadership Program?

  1. Submit an application online.
  2. After we have reviewed your application, we will contact you about acceptance into the ALP program. Confirmation of a spot in the ALP requires a $100 deposit.
  3. Once we have received your deposit, we will send out an acceptance packet with more information about preparing for the program.

What is the cancellation policy?
Although we hope that a cancellation does not happen, we know that things come up and you may not be able to go on the trip. Because many of the costs for your expedition are paid for before your arrival, we have established the following cancellation policy:

  • The $100 deposit is non-refundable
  • Cancellations made before April 1: $650 refunded
  • Cancellations made between April 1–May 14: $375 refunded
  • Cancellations made on or after May 15: No refunds given
