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.
On a typical year, HOC leaders will organize and lead hiking, biking, walking, or other outdoor excursions in the Boston area or to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. This year with a remote semester, leaders are contributing to one of six projects including HOCtube, Humans of HOC, Justice Equity Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI), Responsible Outdoor Recreation, Social Committee, and/or Training. Information on how to apply is included in the application. It is not a requirement that you have extensive outdoors experience but is is required that you have enthusiasm for getting outside! Again, if you’re interested in leading with us, the best information is included in the application linked in the title.
This guide is perfect for freshmen new to the area! It covers several ‘natury’ (but what is nature?) parks and spaces near Cambridge that will help you escape your quarantine cabin fever. Also, feel free to reach out to any of us on HOC board with questions about the area. The link is in the title.
