Club Spotlight: Tuck Outdoor Club

Inclusiveness, camaraderie, participation—these are Tuck traditions. From club meetings to student-run symposia to volunteering in the wider community, you'll find ways to get involved at Tuck. And there's no doubt you’ll be able to do a lot of this while outside enjoying the beautiful New England landscape. Spending two years at Tuck provides a great opportunity to embrace all that nature offers.

Perennially one of the most popular clubs in school, the Tuck Outdoor Club encourages people of all experience levels to simply get together and spend time together in the natural beauty of the Upper Valley. Never been on a hike?  No problem, we can show you the ropes!  Climbed El Capitan backwards twice in the same day this summer while blindfolded? Great! We would love to have you share your stories and help some of the aspiring newbies.

Many Tuckies start getting a taste of Tuck Outdoor events at Admitted Students Weekend, but that is only the tip of the iceberg. Historically events include hiking, kayaking/canoeing, biking, cross-country skiing, rock climbing, snowshoeing, ice climbing, and of course cabin nights – start the countdown to Moosilauke now! That said, we are always open to new ideas and want to make sure everyone has a chance to get outside (and perhaps outside of their comfort zone a little) during their time at Tuck. We look forward to seeing everyone on campus in the fall, where we’ll hopefully be able to get outside as much as possible in the beautiful New England fall weather!
