Founded in 1939, the HOC exists purely to help the Harvard community get outside and have fun in the outdoors. We both run trips and loan gear. We also have a super awesome cabin in the White Mountains that our members can pay a small fee to use. Any Harvard affiliate is welcome to join. Membership is $10.00 per semester, which allows you access to all of our gear.
