Canoe and Hiking Club

About Us

Who are we?
A member-driven sports club, composed of diverse, open-minded individuals who share a common interest: the outdoors!

What do we do?
Our trips include, but are not limited to: backpacking, skiing/snowboard, camping, canoeing, caving, kayaking sea and whitewater, mtn. biking, rafting, and whatever else you can think of. We highly encourage members to lead trips.

Your membership in the UT Canoe & Hiking Club brings you into one of the oldest and cheapest clubs at the University. It allows you to participate in our official trips, which includes free gear rental of necessary gear. Membership entails our bi-annual club getaways and social events of enormous magnitude. Your club membership also provides you with benefits such as first priority on large, planned trips, and of course the opportunity to meet new and exciting people.

To join the Canoe & Hiking Club, simply attend a meeting and sign up. Membership dues are $50 per academic year. Dues cover gas, lodging, and gear on club trips as well as discounts on gear purchases.

If you cannot make a club meeting and still want to join for a trip, contact one of the club officers. Don't forget to sign onto our listserv (Mailbox) to keep up to date with events, social events and other important information. Club memberships are unfortunately limited to University students, faculty, and staff.

On club trips, gear is free and nonclub trips, gear is discounted.
