Welcome to the Outing Club, we are an organization open to all Macalester Students. We organize trips to the outdoors, including backpacking, hiking, canoeing, snow shoeing etc. We also try to serve the Macalester community by offering our equipment for personal use (accessible to anyone with valid Macalester ID).

We believe that the outdoors environment is a unique space for self-reflection and self-exploration, development of strong relationships, simply for learning. We hope that our services will assist students not only to relax but to find out more about themselves by challenging themselves and learning to cooperate with others during our trips.

Mission Statement/Purpose:

The purpose of the Macalester Outing Club is to make the outdoors accessible, safe and affordable to the Macalester community. The club promotes outdoor/ wilderness skills and resources, educates students in outdoor leadership and then in turn offers the leadership to those who seek outdoor experiences, provides cheap rental equipment to the student body, and organizes and leads a vast array of amazing outdoor activities. Through education and experience, we help others to experience and hopefully come to value the outdoors as a realm worth learning about and protecting.
