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?

Some trips are open to non-members! Keep an eye out for them on the trip agenda. You’ll need to fill out the membership application before you go (we need you to sign the waiver).

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).

Can I join at any point in the year?

Yes! See the point above, we accept membership payments year round.

If I don’t get a spot on Very Popular Upcoming Trip, can I have my money back?

Sorry, memberships are not refundable. But there will be lots more awesome trips, or you can even organize one yourself!

The VOC Wiki and FAQ probably hold the answers you seek. If not, email us at ‘information at’.
