Mosaic Outdoor Club of Ontario (MOCO) is a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization. It’s a community of Jewish people who participate in activities, who embrace nature and who love to explore the great outdoors.
We provide quality group experiences to foster the development of outdoor knowledge and a respect for the environment in a Jewish context. In addition, Mosaic seeks to provide a positive social atmosphere for sharing those experiences.
We encourage you to join us in order to interact with other like-minded active people.
Love to be outdoors!
What type of activities do we do? We hike the beautiful Bruce Trail and Oak Ridges Moraine, we have Chanukah skating parties, we take city walks along the ravines, we ski the stunning cross country trails of southern Ontario, we play tennis. We enjoy bowling, we feature running clinics and we learn how to dance. And if that isn’t enough – we usually get together for coffee and schmoozing afterwards. Some programs we have done in the past include tree planting, orienteering, baseball and archery, to name a few.
MOCO also hosts fabulous weekend getaways up north summer and winter, complete with bonfires, singsongs and other fun outdoor activities. Our MOPACK club organizes amazing canoe and camping trips to spectacular sites throughout Ontario. Mosaic also has chapters in many other North American cities, and the annual Labour Day event is a fabulous fun-filled weekend with opportunities to meet others who love the outdoors just like you!
