Whether your true passion lies in exploring the far edges of the world, or you want to better get to know the national and state parks around Boston, whether you’re an experienced adventurer or a beginner weekend warrior, this club is for you if you feel happier outside than inside, if you are willing to sacrifice comfort for adventure and you want to hang with other awesome peeps such as yourself. We believe that experiencing the wilderness and returning to a simpler environment make us better leaders, citizens, and people. We head outdoors with love for adventure, our world, and each other.
