You are welcome to participate in one outing before deciding if you want to join the Burnaby Outdoor Club. Simply check the Current Activities and call a trip organizer to get the details. Be sure to let them know you are a non-member wanting to check out our friendly Club.
We share many fun outdoor activities, primarily as "day trips" primarily in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, and Howe Sound/Whistler areas of southwestern British Columbia. The club also periodically organizes multi-day trips to destinations farther away (e.g. Mount Baker, Olympic National Park, and Manning Park, and many others).
Club trips are limited to a maximum of 12 participants. Please let the coordinator know AT LEAST two days in advance if you plan to go on their trip, this is important for arranging vehicles and logistics.
All participants in "back country" hikes must be fully prepared with the 10 essentials in their packs and proper hiking boots. Also see our Activity Guidelines and check with the trip coordinator for specific advice on the gear required for their outing. Winter conditions may necessitate snowshoes, crampons, or skis.
Our Mission Statement: To promote the care and enjoyment of the outdoor environment through year-round hiking, cycling and skiing, supplemented by a variety of sports and social activities.
The Burnaby Outdoor Club has operated since May 1991 and has about 100 members. We encourage all outdoor activities, and are supported and sustained by members planning and leading them on a volunteer basis.
