The Varsity Outdoor Club (VOC) is a student run club of the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. We are avid outdoors enthusiasts and enjoy hiking, rock climbing, mountaineering, back-country skiing, paddling, bike-touring and all self-propelled outdoor adventures.


We Need Your Help!

The VOC maintains four huts for the benefit of non-motorized recreation in BC. Recently, the roof at our Brian Waddington Hut failed and will need an extensive overhaul.

If you’d like to donate to the project, please visit the link below and select “Brian Waddington Hut project” in the dropdown menu under “FUND”. Tax receipts are generated automatically.
