Welcome to the Durham Outdoors Club. The Durham Outdoors Club began with a small group of like-minded individuals that got together informally to enjoy outdoor pursuits in each others company. As word of the core group spread others joined, and in 1996 a formal club with an executive, and event coordinators was organized.

Our members enjoy a common goal of learning about and pursuing a broad range of outdoor activities and experiences. Hiking, canoeing/kayaking, canoe tripping, cycling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and winter camping are among the Club's more common pursuits.

During the summer months the Wednesday evening Nosey Neighbour Walks are very popular. These weekly walks explore various urban and conservation areas within the Durham Region. Urban Events include bowling, plays, games nights and local music festivals as well as the yearly December Beaches Walk.

The Durham Outdoors Club is run by members for members. The activities in which we engage are limited only by the imagination of our members, their willingness to become involved, organize and participate.
