Looking for info about Wilderness Ongoing Orientation Program (WOOP) trips? Check out this page.

At least a couple weekends a month, the Outing Club runs official trips of varying difficulties and types, from easy day hikes and adventures around Boston to multi-day cabin and backpacking trips in New Hampshire and Maine. All of these trips are led by at least two trained and certified HOC leaders, planned fully in advance, and open to all dues-paid club members. The only costs are to cover trip expenses, and therefore vary based on transportation, food, cabin fees, etc. However, financial aid is always available based on need (just talk to the trip leaders!). Especially for those with limited outdoors experience, transportation, or familiarity with New England, official trips are a great opportunity to escape Cambridge for a few hours or days! All trips are announced at least a week in advance over the email list.

In addition, the HOC is a great resource for helping plan individual or group adventures based on past trip reports and route recommendations. All our favorites are searchable with the HOC Adventure Finder below! If you need more advice, recommendations, or assistance in planning your weekend fun, stop by office hours!
