Philosophy:

Southern Ontario GO! is dedicated to serve our communities as a pathway to explore and enjoy our natural environment with like-minded, fun adventurers. We are a non-profit group, run completely by non-paid volunteers who provide enthusiast leadership in a eco-friendly, in a safety conscious way.

 Our Hikes are run by Hike Ontario Certified Hike leaders in good standing.  Every event is planned to provide a safe, enjoyable event that is respectful and supportive to all members and to our natural environment.

How to Become a Member:

Post a clear photo of yourself, in which your face can be seen (stick men, distance photos, plants, pets are not acceptable).  Please use an initial to signify your last name so we can distinguish members. Also, ensure you answer all the questions.

Your contribution:

This is a small group, and your contribute is appreciated. If you can volunteer we have several interesting areas where you can help out. 

We offer a yearly membership fee of $14.50 (or 7.25 for six months) or you can pay $2.00 per event. This is considered a donation and is mandatory to be a participant in the event.  Those who come to an event without this contribution or membership will not be allowed to join in and may be removed from the group.

Our organizers are volunteers, all members are expected to come to the event with courtesy and a positive attitude.

Guest Policy: 

Guests need to be pre-approved. They are expected to become a member for the day, which includes signing a waiver, providing information, and wearing the appropriate gear (eg. icers in winter).

Three Strike & Three Month Policy

RSVP are your commitment to take a spot for an event. When you don't show up this is counted as a strike. After three strikes you may be removed from the group without an opportunity to re-join.

If you sign up and do not use your membership for three months, you many be removed from the group without an opportunity to re-join.

Pre hikes are the exception, since we are more flexible about who is coming and the times and try to accommodate those who sign up. You must be a full (paid) member to pre-hike.

Conclusion

If you are at a beginner, or at an intermediate, or an intermediate to advanced level of hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking and other fun sports, you will find our activities are run to allow you to enjoy your level of exercise, and know that we always meet at a final destination point for great conversation and great food! 

Take advantage now, and join today to discover the incredible beauty of Ontario with like-minded friends! From Niagara Falls to the beautiful escarpment waterfalls of Hamilton, to the lakeshore of Bronte, we can discover natural beauty throughout the year while gaining health, laughter and friendships!
