Member Benefits

Membership is not required for Outdoor Adventure Club trips, but it does have its benefits….

To start, all OAC members (does not include online course subscriptions) get discounts on our trips, and free gear rental on our camping trips.  But there’s more. We’ve designed our membership program to provide an option for just about everyone, whether you are looking to join us for one trip, a trip every month or so, or you’re ready to join us more often. The biggest benefit of membership is discounted or free trips, but there are other benefits, as well.
