What is the largest club on the Colby College campus, host of the AT Maine 2017 Conference?
Why the Colby Outing Club, of course. With over 500 members participating in outings every academic year, its sole mission is “to get you outside” The club sponsors over 100 trips a year to locations all around Maine and New England.
From backpacking in the White Mountains in New Hampshire and the Bigelow Mts. in Maine to surfing the beaches of Old Orchard Beach, the club has offerings that range in for the experienced enthusiast to even those who have not even left campus to visit downtown Waterville yet.
The club rents equipment, trains trip leaders, offers certifications in many outdoor leadership programs in addition to the trips offered on a year round basis. They even have a cabin in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Maine that is open to rent for campus organizations and outside groups as well to enjoy the tranquil lakeside experience of Maine.
The club has been a leader in providing alternative student offerings while at the same time providing the student leaders of trips the invaluable experience of leadership in the outdoors.
Visit their Facebook Page or their Website to learn more about the club, its offerings and its overall mission and purpose.
Colby’s Campus is a Wildlife Management District
For its first 100+ years, Colby was located in downtown Waterville. Over a 10 year period (1942-1952), the College transitioned to its new larger 714-acre campus location on Mayflower Hill (about 2 miles away). Approximately 90% of the main campus (640 acres) is designated as a Wildlife Management Area by the State of Maine (since 1953). Only about 1/3rd of the campus is developed. Over 7 miles of trails provide access to the undeveloped sections of campus including the 160-acre Perkins arboretum. Here is a link to the campus trails map. http://tinyurl.com/zr7dzcs
