Bowdoin Outing Club

Throughout its history, the Bowdoin Outing Club (BOC) has been a special part of the lives of Bowdoin students. For decades, it has offered students the opportunity to explore and connect with the nature that surrounds the campus. From humble beginnings, the Outing Club has developed into the largest student organization of the Bowdoin campus and offers students more opportunities than ever before.

How to get involved: To learn more about what's happening at the BOC and receive weekly emails from the Officers, please join the Bowdoin Outing Club group on Campus Groups! 

Gear Rentals: BOC members are welcome to borrow gear for BOC trips and their personal adventures. Staff and faculty are also welcome to rent gear. We have everything you need to participate in any of our trips, and we also have equipment to outfit a personal camping trip. If you have questions about what is available to borrow, please email bocGearRoom@bowdoin.edu
