How to Join

Joining the VOC is a four-part process:

  1. Fill out the membership application.
  2. Bring your membership fee to the clubroom in cash, some time when the Clubroom is open. For times, see the Gear Rental page.
  3. At the clubroom, a member of the exec will activate your membership.
  4. Use the password that was emailed to you to sign in to your account.

Then, you’ll be able to sign up for trips and participate on the message board.

Not sure you want to join yet?

As a non-member, you can go on up to two trips. However, if space is limited members are given priority. To join a trip, fill out the membership application (we need you to sign the waiver) and then contact the organizer of the trip you’re interested in or email [email protected]

I want to join, but I can’t afford the membership fee

We don’t want money to be a barrier to the outdoors. Please get in touch with the membership chair at [email protected] and they will help you out.

I’m not a UBC student, can I still join?

Yes, though it’ll cost you slightly more. Other than that, the only difference is that you won’t be able to vote or run for the executive (you can still get involved in other ways!)

How long does a membership last?

Memberships are for one academic year. They extend until September 30th, unless paid for after May 1st (in which case they extend until September 30th of the following year).
