McGill Outdoors Frosh


What do I need to bring?

You just need to bring personal items- things like clothes, sleeping bags/pads and toiletries. Group gear (e.g. tents, food, cooking supplies) will be provided. You’ll be able to rent any personal gear that you don’t have through the McGill Outdoor Club (MOC)! *The only exception is for hiking frosh: you will need a good pair of shoes (preferably hiking shoes). We do not rent hiking shoes*

Who is eligible to participate in Frosh?

If you are an incoming first year McGill student or a visiting exchange student, you are eligible! 

When is Registration?

Registration for Frosh 2023 will be open July 17th 2023. Follow us on Instagram, @mcgilloutdoorfrosh, to get more updates!

What is the MOC?

‘MOC’ stands for McGill Outdoors Club and is one of the largest clubs at McGill. The execs of the MOC run trips throughout the year, from canoe trips in Mauricie Park to early morning hikes up Mont Royal. Members are also welcome to host trips and use the Listserv to invite others and make some new friends! Your registration fee for frosh will include a $20 membership fee, so you’ll be all set to participate in their events later on in the year! 

When is Frosh?

Frosh will take place between August 24th-27th, 2023!

Can I participate in more than one frosh?

No, you will only be able to register for one frosh option this year. That being said, you’ll still be able to participate in the McGill orientation week (e.g., discovery day etc.) because these events occur before the days of frosh.

Do I have to have specific skills to participate in frosh? 

Outdoors Frosh is open to everyone! All of our activities will be beginner-friendly, and you’ll have lots of capable leaders around you to give you a helping hand. 

How much does frosh cost?

The cost of frosh varies from year to year, based on the expenses involved in planning. We run frosh as close to at-cost as possible to make it as affordable as we can.
If the price will stop you from participating in our frosh please reach out to us with a brief description of why you’d like to participate in frosh, and we will do our best to offer full or partial bursaries (please indicate which one you need when you write to us).
