The best way to get involved is to attend trips! Monitor the DOS Instagram and trip calendar to make sure you don't miss out. Check our our "Get Involved" tab for up-to-date info on membership, and involvement opportunities!

If you are interested in becoming a trip leader, please keep an eye out for positions opening up in the fall here, or on our Instagram!

Can I bring friends who aren't Dal/King's students on trips?

No, unfortunately for liability reasons, only current Dalhousie and King's students are allowed to attend any of the trips DOS runs.

How do I use the Gear Library?

Check out our Gear Library page here!
If you have further questions, please contact the gear library coordinator— contact info can be found here

When do Grant Applications come out, and who can apply for them?

There are new grants available each semester. Reach out to our general email:, or to the treasurer to inquire about current status of application. 

Do you need experience to attend a DOS trip?

We try our best to make trips as accessible as possible. That being said, we also try to cater to more intermediate and expert students as well. As we offer a wide range of trip difficulties, get in contact with a member of the executive or the trip leader themselves to see if the trip is a good fit for you.
