The Colby Outing Club is your Mayflower Hill home for all things skiing, hiking, and whitewater.

The Colby Outing Club is an entirely student-run organization that exists solely to get people outdoors. We are the largest club on campus with over 300 members annually and a mailing list of over 1,000 people. We run trips every weekend, operate a sugaring program on campus, maintain an extensive inventory of outdoor equipment, and are always excited to help you plan your own expedition. We cater our trips and gear to all levels of experience, so whether you took a gap year to hike the Appalachian Trail or have never ventured beyond the arb, you can be sure to find something for you at the COC. 

We also operate a cabin on the shore of Great Pond of Belgrade lakes which is available for day and overnight use.

You can use this website to find out a little more about what we do: sign up for upcoming trips, find the gear you need, become a part of the club and lead trips, or learn more about outdoors opportunities in Maine and plan your own trip.

Or, better yet, come see us in person! We hold meetings every Sunday at 7, in the COC office in the basement of Mary Low, and we’re open for gear rentals and skills clinics Monday through Thursday, 7pm to 8pm. Come to ask questions, borrow gear, rent the cabin, or just hang out. We hold a weekly meeting every Sunday evening at 7pm to plan upcoming trips, discuss club business, and tell outrageous tales of adventure. Everyone is welcome to come.

Any Questions? Email coc@colby.edu for more information, and be sure to add yourself to the mailing list for up-to-the-minute info on the latest and greatest of outdoors at Colby.
