Welcome to the Nassau Community College Outdoor Club

NCCOC(On mobile devices this page is best viewed in landscape (horizontal) orientation.)
We go outdoors; hiking, camping, canoeing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, and more.  Our trips are on weekends or during school vacations, single days or the whole weekend depending on the trip and the people going on it.  Most of our trips are to nearby upstate New York and New Jersey but we go as far as New Hampshire and Maine occasionally.  All students prepared to participate are welcome; all of the costs are reasonable with no charges for hikes. We have recently changed our name to the more descriptive "Outdoor Club" from the "Outing Club" so there may be some old links still around (including campuslabs) using the old name.   If you can't make the meetings and want to go on any trip, contact the person indicated in the description on our Trip Listings page for details of meeting time and place, what to bring, etc.
Subscribe to the e-mail notification service by using the box at the lower left.  This Club is sponsored with student activities funds through the Student Government Association (SGA) and Faculty-Student Association (FSA).
