Independent Minds, Working Together


WOODS is The College of Wooster's premiere outdoors club. Our members are welcome to pursue any and all outdoor activities. Whether one enjoys backpacking, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, or any other outdoor adventures, WOODS is the place to be. The club is participant driven. Want to go on a hike? Mountain bike in Utah? Rock climb in West Virginia? Maintain a trail in Wooster? We’ve done it and we can help you do it. No experience is necessary- we love to teach. Beyond our activities, we advocate for environmental issues, access and ethical outdoor recreation.
