Drawing of the future cabin

Camelot Bunkhouse Project 2024

A core part of the MITOC community, and in particular our access to the mountains, continues to be our well-loved “Camelot” cabin, located in central New Hampshire. As you may know, Camelot was built in the 1970s (on a shoestring budget), and it is nearing the end of its useful life. Since 2013, the Outing Club has been working to build new, safe and modern sleeping quarters on the Camelot property, which will ensure that MITOC can fulfill our mission for decades to come.

MITOC partnered with Maclay Architects to design a new bunkhouse for Camelot which will be located approximately 100m from the existing cabin. The new bunkhouse will contain five bedrooms (sleeping ten persons each), a large central hallway, and a covered deck. We anticipate the cost of the new bunkhouse to be approximately $500,000.

With the design now complete, we are actively seeking donations. If you are able, please consider donating to help us hit our fundraising target in 2023. We are breaking ground on site preparation in 2023, and fundraising permitting, we will build the new bunkhouse during 2024. This project will ensure we can fulfill our mission for the next generation of MITOCers.

Become a Club Officer

Interested in become a club officer? Join the Board of Directors (BOD)! We are a group of members and volunteers who all care deeply about the club and enabling the MITOC community to enjoy being outside. We do everything from organizing Winter School, maintaining our gear and cabins, to recruiting new leaders and members.

We have elections for positions each year, generally in late spring. Nevertheless, anyone excited about committing time and passion to the club is welcome at any time. BOD is not a fixed size or a closed club, but a fluctuating group of fun folks, constantly looking for more people to get excited and integrated into the MITOC family. Keep an eye on the email lists for announcements of monthly meetings, which are open to all MITOC members. If you have a specific idea you want to spearhead, email mitoc-owner@mit.edu.
