McGill Outdoor Frosh is an alternative frosh option running from August 28th to September 2nd for those wishing to explore the wilderness surrounding Montreal. There are 6 activity options: Canoe, Whitewater Kayak, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Climbing, and Camping. Each option has a different location and focuses around their outdoor activity, and every option includes an overnight trip that takes you outside Montreal to the wilderness of Quebec. All options except Whitewater Kayak (which requires a strong swimming ability) and Mountain Biking (which requires that you are comfortable on a bike) are beginner-friendly and all are about having fun outside and making connections to start off your university life.

Before each Frosh option froshies will participate in three days of pre-frosh activities. These involve races throughout Montreal, apartment crawls, movie screenings, and many other surprises!


Outdoor Frosh is committed to supporting new McGill students who want to increase their outdoor involvement through the provision of unique adventure opportunities guided by outgoing, inclusive, and safety-orientated leaders, with a focus on engagement, development, and environmental stewardship.
