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 2024. We are breaking ground on site preparation in 2024, and fundraising permitting, we will complete the new bunkhouse in late 2024 or early 2025. This project will ensure we can fulfill our mission for the next generation of MITOCers.

What’s a Trip Report?

MITOC members embark on all kinds of awesome trips around New England and the world. When they’re back at MIT, they’re encouraged to present photos and stories of their adventures to inspire others to pursue cool trips.

Present Your Trip!

Have you been on a cool adventure you’d like to share with the MITOC community? Email mitoc-owner@mit.edu to set up your very own trip report social.


Typically trip report socials are about an hour long and are held in the MITOC office with food provided by MITOC. They’re generally presented in the form of a photo-rich PowerPoint slideshow supplemented with stories and commentary. Trip report socials are a great way to meet people, get inspired, and inspire others to plan their own epic trips.
