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.

Special General Meeting

The COC will be conducting a Special General Meeting on February 8th at 6PM. See the event for complete information.

Device/Phone-Friendly Web Site

COC is pleased to announce our new device/phone-friendly web site, but we need some feedback/input! Read all about it on COC Life.

Club Funding Changes

Effective December 10, 2020, the COC returned to a “voluntary donation” funding model. Full details on our first-ever post on our new COC Life blog.
