The BOC runs hiking, kayaking, biking, climbing, backpacking, alpine, and skiing trips each school year. The fall break and spring break backpacking trips are the BOC’s longest trips, going to Adirondack, the Blue Ridge, and the White Mountains in recent years. Several subsidized ski trips take place every winter, and rock-climbing trips to New Hampshire occur in the spring and fall.
Every year, the club offers classes in climbing and backpacking skills. The BOC also runs periodic service trips to improve the public’s experience in the outdoors, especially in Rhode Island.
If you’re interested in the community, challenge, and regeneration that the outdoors offer, join our mailing list that includes over 2000 members of the Brown community—faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students included.
Our executive board is comprised of over 40 leaders from the Brown community. Experienced members from the board lead each trip with safety in mind.
