Welcome to the Calgary Outdoor Club!

Free to join, and open to any adult in Canada, the COC brings people together in a fun, friendly and inviting atmosphere. We strive to offer a variety of events, with some things geared for beginners, some more challenging things, and lots of 'somewhere in the middle' stuff. And, we attempt to keep events as low-cost as possible. A majority of our events take place in the Calgary area, but occasionally we visit our neighboring provinces or travel further away from home.

Each month we have regular outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, biking, inline skating and canoeing (summer) and skiing, boarding, cross-country skiing and snow shoeing (winter), as well as social events, and "special" events such as white water rafting, caving, and dog sled tours.

The COC is 100% volunteer run. Get more general information, see our membership stats, and read our faqs for more information. Still not satisfied? Contact us with any further questions you may have.

2021 Annual General Meeting

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) for 2021 will be held on October 14th. Sign up here and remember to indicate your venue preference.


As of September 16, we have new provincial rules for COVID-19. Outdoor events will proceed, however, the club will not do indoor gatherings of any sort, nor coordinator-arranged carpool (attendees may arrange their own carpool). Please see our COVID-19 Policy for complete details.
