Bates Outing Club leads many trips over the course of the academic year! The best place to check out what trips are being offered is on Bates Engage! The link can be found below:

All trips are categorized using a set of criteria that we hope can help folks best identify which trips are the right fit for them. Those criteria are explained in the document at the bottom of this page.

Cancelling/Failure to Show Up: Most of our trips have a limited number of spots, and we understand that things come up. We ask that if you are unable to attend a trip you please cancel your ticket or let either your trip leaders or a staff member know at least 24 hours before the trip so someone else can take your spot.

If you fail to show up for a trip you have signed up for without cancelling your ticket or notifying either your trip leaders or a BOC staff member, you will receive a warning. If you fail to show up without notice a second time, you will prohibited from signing up for BOC trips for the rest of the year.
