Harvard Outing Club

Donate TO HOC!

As HOC’s 85th anniversary approaches, we are striving to continue our mission of getting as many members of the Harvard community outside as possible – but this mission has become more and more difficult as transportation costs have risen. We’re counting on your support to keep taking people outdoors!

The people I’ve met, the friendships I’ve built, and the mountains I’ve climbed have all had such an incredible impact on me. I have no doubt my memories from HOC will stay with me throughout my life and I so hope the same has happened for you
