Description

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

Michelina is thrilled to be sharing her passion for adventure with the Western Outdoors Club this year. Michelina is a fourth year student with plenty of past camping and hiking experiences under her belt – she even spent a summer living in Jasper National Park! Michelina has been a member of the club for the past two years and hopes to create the same positive experience she had with the club for members this year. Her mission is to allow Western Students to experience some of the beauty the Ontario outdoors has to offer.
