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.

Disc Golf season is officially here! Congratulations to Duane Verity for celebrating his 1100th coordinated event on May 9 playing disc golf at Stanley Park!

As you may or may not know, the fate of the Calgary Outdoor Club is up in the air due to the lack of people interested in filling positions on the Board of Directors. We need members to attend our Special General Meeting on July 11 to vote on the direction of the COC. There are two information evenings available to attend virtually on July 3 and 6 if you want to know all the details before placing your vote.
