What we're about

Join Outdoors Club around the New York City area. Visit interesting places and meet new people. Some activities are easy, and others difficult. Most of our events are easily reached by public transportation.

Joining this Meetup group does not make you an Outdoors Club member. Non-members pay one-day dues of $3 to attend an Outdoors Club event. By becoming an annual dues paying member, you won't have to pay $3 per event, you'll receive our semi-annual hike schedule in advance, and be notified of Member-Only events not posted on Meetup. http://www.outdoorsclubny.org/membership/

RSVP Policy: There are often more people wanting to join than spots available. Sign up only if you intend to show up. If you have to cancel, please change your RSVP as early as possible to allow someone on the waitlist an opportunity join. Thank you for being a considerate Outdoors Club community member.

If you have any questions about an event, please contact the leader directly (email / phone included in event description). For general questions about Outdoors Club (volunteer-run non-profit 501(c)(3) open to adults), please call Lenny Morgenstern at 917-842-9490 or email us at outdoorsclubny@yahoo.com.

Your participation in any of our activities is your acknowledgment that you are solely responsible for your own assessment of your abilities and your physical fitness to participate in that activity. Participants in any Outdoors Club activity are encouraged to discuss with the hike leader any limitation they may have that could affect their ability to fully participate in an event. The hike leader may refuse to take anyone who lacks proper equipment or adequate ability. Walkers must be physically fit and by joining any event you agree to waive all rights and claims for damages against Outdoors Club, its hike leaders, officers, directors, employees or volunteers.

Outdoors Club does not tolerate inappropriate behavior during its events. If you are subject to or witness any inappropriate behavior during an Outdoors Club event, please report the behavior to us at outdoorsclubny@yahoo.com. We will investigate any reports of inappropriate behavior and take necessary action.

We encourage and appreciate the posting of photos taken during Outdoors Club events and we reserve the right to use the photos in any manner and for any reason, except for commercial purposes, without remuneration or credit.
