The MIT Outing Club (MITOC) is dedicated to helping the MIT and Cambridge community enjoy the great outdoors. MITOC members are students, staff, alumni, and faculty from MIT and the greater academic community who come together for year-round outdoor recreation in the company of other enthusiasts. MITOC members hike, climb, ski, bike, camp, tramp, backpack, snowshoe, and canoe to the highest, widest, most scenic vistas in New England and beyond. Join us for friendship, adventure, and fun!

If you’re new to MITOC, you should start by joining some of our email lists, which are used to announce club events and organize informal trips. Our calendar and trip signup are also good places to find upcoming MITOC events.

If you’re interested in renting gear from MITOC, please read the gear rental information before coming to office hours.

If you want to sign up for a MITOC-organized trip or rent gear from us, you’ll have to become a member.
