The Harvard Outing Club is the perfect group for anyone interested in joining or leading trips to go hiking, apple picking, cross country skiing, bike riding or other fun outdoor adventure. HOC’s mission is to bring people in the Harvard community outside regardless of prior experience. “All are welcome” is our motto and we strive to live by it. There are two ways to join the club! For the casually interested, you can join the mail list and sign up for trips whenever you want. If you want to be more involved, you can apply to be a leader where you will take a Wilderness First Aid course, complete two training trips, and will need to lead at least two trips per semester. You don’t need any prior outdoor experience to sign up for a trip or to apply to lead, just enthusiasm and a desire to get outside. If you have any questions about the Club feel free to email us or reach out to any of this year’s board directly!
The email list is the best way to find out about HOC events, updates, and is also the best way for you to contact us! With this year being mostly remote and no trips each weekend, your inbox won’t be filled by us, but we will let you know about our upcoming events and challenges. The email list is a great first step and no more commitment is necessary to be part of the HOC community. If you are interested in becoming more involved with HOC, consider applying to be a leader.
Current HOC leaders, this feedback form is for you! This form will always be available for you to provide input (anonymous if you choose) to the HOC board about the future of the organization, problems with safety, problems with inclusion, or other issues. All ideas are welcome (not only limited to pressing concerns) and we look forward to hearing from you. This is the same form included in the weekly newsletter and the form will be permanently available on the JEDI page as well as the For Leaders page.
