The Tufts Mountain Club (TMC) motto is “Go Outside”. More specifically, we help members of the Tufts community connect with resources, knowledge, and friends to safely explore the outdoors. Our aim is toÂ serve as aÂ hub for people interested in the outdoors, so they can share skills and opportunities with each other.
TMCÂ is one of the largest student organizations on campus. Founded in 1939, the organization is also one of the oldest on campus. We carry on many traditions from year to year, but also look for opportunities to offer brand new experiences to members.
Members must register on this website in order to be added to our email list and receive club resources. Our email list is vital for communication about deals, trips, clinics, and events that may not be otherwise posted on our website!
TMC hosts events and trips locally, near campus, andÂ at our Loj in New Hampshire.Â Trips and rides are publicized on our activitiesÂ page, and events are publicized on our home page and on the events page. We encourage club members to attend as many or few of these events as they wish (though we hope they wish to attend many).
Trips are generally divided into four technical programs: aqua, hiking, skiing, and climbing. The TMC board includes directors for each program, who ensure that skill sessions and trips are offered at a variety of levels over the course of the year. We also have a stewardship program to help TMC give back to the communities we are a part of through outdoor activities.
Just about everything you need to connect with TMC is here on this website! Poke around for resources and contact info about trips and our history, and see our trips board or trip leader database if you want to learn more outdoor skills. Clicking the links on this page or contacting us may be a good place to start answering your questions.
