Queen's University Outdoors Club

 Est. 1970 - Keep it Wil

The QUOC website is currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION! 

However, here are the basic details of the club:

Simply, we are club for Queen's Students that like to escape the concrete, and play Outdoors.

Philosophically, we are a club to enhance physical and mental health through active self-propelled engagement of the Outdoors, while enhancing environmental awareness and connections to our natural surroundings and to peers that share these common values.

You may join the club (register and pay) at any time throughout the year, but must do so before going on a trip! 
You can always do so at our weekly meetings: Wednesdays @ 5:30pm in Dunning 12

Steps to register:
1. Complete the Queen's Recreation Club Registration: http://bit.ly/1rU5mgW (select 'Outdoors Club')
2. Complete the QUOC Membership form: http://bit.ly/1EXATiW
3. Come to a meeting and make your payment.
For students: $30/ year or $20/ semester
For Queen's alumni, faculty/ staff + spouses: $40/ year or $25/ semester plus an active ARC membership

To go on an awesome trip:
1. Fully register as a member
2. Receive weekly emails "The Scoop!" with upcoming trip descriptions, hopefully something interests you! These are sent to paid members only. 
3. Come to a weekly meeting (Wednesdays @ 5:30pm in Dunning 12) to sign up on an "interest list" 3-4 weeks before a trip
At meetings we also share pictures and stories from the weekend, and occasionally host movie nights and potlucks!
4. Secure your place with payment for a trip 2-3 weeks in advance (at a meeting or contact your trip leader)

*Note: we cannot rent canoes, kayaks, or mountaineering equipment outside of official club trips*
