Outdoors Club



The Western Outdoors Club consists of a fun group of people who love spending time in the outdoors! The club runs activities for all levels of outdoors enthusiasts whether it be a scenic stroll on hiking trails or overnight backpacking adventures. Throughout the year, we offer hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and even dogsledding trips. In the fall, winter, and spring, the clubs offers a mix of both overnight and day trip adventures to appeal to a wide variety of members! Your membership fee allows you to participate in trips and borrow equipment during our activities (eg. tents, hiking packs, sleeping bags, stoves, first aid kits, etc.). Each trip will have a set trip fee, which will be paid by those attending the trip to cover costs like trip activities, campsite rentals, and bus transportation where applicable. Registration for each trip will be announced throughout the year and trip spots are obtained on a first-come-first-served basis.

About the President

Scott is incredibly excited to lead the club after two years of limited travel and trips. Born and raised in Mississauga Scott’s passion for the outdoors was ignited by camping trips with his dad when he was young and early involvement in Scouts Canada. Scott has a variety of outdoor experience ranging from backcountry canoeing in Algonquin Park to backpacking through the Canadian Rockies. He’s honored to provide the opportunity for people to reconnect with nature, experience the beauty Ontario has to offer, and enjoy unique quality time with a great group of people.
