Trips & Schools - Covid 19


UPDATE: 6/25/20

To our Orvis Adventures Family,

These unprecedented and trying times continue to change rapidly. The health and well-being of our Orvis customers, employees, and partners remains our highest priority. For this reason, our Shooting Grounds, Schools, and Travel experiences are opening in a measured and responsible manner. We are managing customer experiences on a case-by-case basis that is dependent on the health and safety regulations in the region which they take place.

Here is where our businesses stand currently:

Orvis Shooting Grounds: Sandanona, Hill Country, and Pursell Farms are fully operational. Customers are taking part in activities in accordance with both Orvis’ criteria for keeping people safe and all standards set by local or state regulations. We are taking every measure possible to ensure our Shooting Grounds and School locations are run in the safest manner for staff and guests alike. These efforts include a focus on sanitization, enforcement of social distancing, a shift to outdoor-only operations, and other considerations. We can offer private, socially distanced fly-casting and shooting instruction.

Orvis Schools and Orvis Travel: We are booking dates for future schools and travel, and we have developed a new line-up of domestic travel offerings for customers who may not wish to travel abroad just yet. Health and Safety protocols for existing schools are being managed on a case-by-case basis, dependent on the specific location’s regulations. Our Virtual Casting lessons have been receiving rave reviews – these offer a great way to make sure your cast is tuned up while you are at home.

Orvis Endorsed Partner Network: As parts of the United States start to re-open, a number of our Endorsed Partners have resumed hospitality and guiding based on their regional protocols, and in accordance with all health and safety regulations. Every future booking to a lodge, outfitter, or guide helps to ensure that the small businesses and individuals who provide us all with so much joy are here for years to come.

As we move toward increasing our assortment and offering, please know that our Orvis Adventures team is here to serve your immediate needs, and we can help you plan adventures to come. While most of our team is working from home offices, we are still working, and we are dedicated to our customers; should you have any questions about a travel reservation, a school, or if you just want to chat about where your next adventure will take you, we can be reached at orvisadventures@orvis.com or 800-537-4322.

Follow along on the Orvis social media channels as we share stories and images inspired by the adventure and wonder in the outdoors. You’ll find educational content, serene moments to relax the mind, and other great tidbits to keep the adventure fire stoked. Though we know it is challenging to be out on the water or in the field with us now, there are many days of adventure and wonder ahead. We can’t wait to see you soon.

Thank you for your trust in us. Our relationships with our customers and partners are truly unique, and they make life meaningful in times like these.

Be well and be safe.

Sincerely,

Scott McEnaney

Director—Orvis Adventures | The Orvis Company
