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.

RSVP Policy: We appreciate you being a considerate Outdoors Club community member. There are often more people wanting to attend 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 attend.

By becoming an annual dues paying member, you won't have to pay $5 per event, you'll receive our semi-annual hike schedule in advance, be notified of Member-Only events not posted on Meetup and support Outdoors Club operations. http://www.outdoorsclubny.org/membership/
