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.

Support Local

Two great opportunities to support local: COC Life Blog.

Carpool Survey Completed

80% of the club members who responded to our carpool cost survey indicated that we should not lower the maintenance portion of our carpool calculation. We are, therefore, considering this matter resolved at this time. In spring of 2023 we will be doing a full review of the carpool amount calculation and potentially making some changes at that time. Stay tuned. Thanks everyone!
