Trip Catalogue

Welcome to the BOC Trip Catalogue!

The Bates Outing Club is proud to offer a new resource to the Bates and greater Lewiston Auburn Community. We are in the process of compiling all the outdoor trips in the general area. Follow the links below to search the catalogue by trip type (everything from backpacking to sitting on a beach), trip length (how long you want to be gone from campus), distance from campus (how many miles you’ll need to drive or walk from campus), and the amount of Experience Required (Beginner-Expert based on activity):
