Welcome to the Kamloops Outdoor Club!

 

This hand-out is intended to outline information about the Club.

 

The Kamloops Outdoor Club was founded in 1936 by Jack Gregson now honorary president for life.  The Club members share fellowship and a variety of outdoor interests, such as hiking and cross-country skiing, throughout the year, with an outing planned for most Sundays/weekends of the year.  Pets are not allowed on club outings.

 

The Club owns a cabin, and maintains historical records of its activities.  Early records are kept at the Kamloops Museum.  All Club work is done by members volunteering their time and labor.  The cabin and its surrounding area is a non-smoking environment.

 

The Club activities vary with the season, each having its own unique highlight.  The summer features backpacking and car-camping to both remote and easy-access areas.  The fall brings more day hikes, work parties, and the annual banquet.  Winter is devoted to cross-country skiing, both day trips and the occasional weekend away.  A traditional Christmas party is held at the cabin.  Spring is celebrated with the new bloom of flowers on day hikes and a gourmet picnic above Chase.  All outings are planned at regular program meetings and everyone is invited to attend and share his/her ideas.

 

The club's constitution and by-laws are posted on our website for your perusal. 

 

THESE GUIDELINES ARE FOR YOUR PROTECTION AND SAFETY AND TO ENSURE THAT YOUR OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE WILL ALWAYS BE ENJOYABLE AND SAFE.
