May 17 - May 23

Hello WOC family!  Come check out some of the awesome outdoor events we have going on this week. All events are open to the Williams College community. 



Are you able to lend gear to WOOLF leaders? 

Many of our WOOLF leaders don’t have their own gear, so we’re looking for YOUR help! If you will be on campus by 9/01/21 and have boots, backpacks, rain jackets, fleeces, headlamps, etc. that you’d be willing to share with others, please fill out this form!! WOOLF leaders with extra gear are also welcome to fill out the form! Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Interested in leading WOC trips???

Fill out this form to get connected with WOC’s trip leader program! There will be an info session shortly to talk through the trip leading process and meet some other folks that are interested in putting trips on WOC’s calendar. We’d love to gauge interest and extend our leader community for the spring! Email Rachel at [log in to unmask] with any questions!!


The WOC Equipment Room will be open M, W, & Th, &  by appointment only.  Hours will be 12 -2 and The Equipment Room is open to all members of the Williams community.  Please go to this appointment schedule and sign up for a slot.  Be prepared to show a “CLEARED” status on your CoVerified App when you come for your appointment.  Equipment is due back one week later so sign up for that appointment also.  

We want your feedback on trips! Have you recently gone on a trip and want to give us feedback on COVID-19 precautions and how things went? Fill out our feedback form after your trip so we know how we’re doing!
