Frequently Asked Questions


What kinds of TTC trips are there?

The trips that we lead are hiking, camping, backpacking, caving, climbing, trail maintenance, kayaking, canoeing, mountain biking, and road tripping. Explore more information about our trips by clicking below.

Do I have to pay anything for trips?

The cost of trips will mostly be the (split) cost of gas to drive to your destination. If your trip requires the trip leader to buy food, you may be asked to contribute to that cost as well. Finally, if you borrow club gear, you have to pay a $15 gear fee that covers you for every school year, which is a pretty nice deal!

How do I sign up for TTC trips?

In our Discord, locate the trip-forms channel, and find a trip you would like to go on. Click on the form, fill it out, and the trip leader will be in touch (usually within a week or so) to either offer you a spot on the trip or place you on the waitlist for that trip!

What if I don't have any gear of my own?

You are welcome to buy your own, but it is not necessary at all. We have a storage locker off campus that has all the gear you'll need for any trip, just make sure to let your trip leader know beforehand.

How often do trips occur?

Trips occur at different frequencies depending on the type of activity; explore the estimated frequency of trips by clicking below.

How long are the weekly meetings?

The weekly meetings usually last around 40 to 60 minutes.

Can I lead TTC trips on my own?

Absolutely! This is a student led organization so most of our trip leaders are students. Find out more about the process of becoming an approved trip leader below.

How do I go on trips if I don't have a car?

We carpool! If you don't have a car, don't worry, trip transportation will be provided to you via carpool. Usually the trip leader will organize a meet up spot and time for departure so that everyone is comfortable with their carpool arrangements before leaving.

Who can I contact with any TTC questions?

If you have any questions, please reach out to an officer individually via Discord so that we don't miss your question in the large TTC server. We will do our best to respond promptly and concisely!

What if I don't have any experience?

Perfect! We welcome beginners all the time and as long as you're curious and excited, we'll make sure that you'll learn the necessary skills.

What if I hate nature?

Join us on our Trail Maintenance Trips! You'll be spending your time bashing rocks and tearing up the ground. You can contribute to trails that'll stick it to Mother Nature for generations to come.

What if I can't make the weekly meetings?

It's totally fine. Obviously we would love everyone in TTC to come, but it is not a requirement.
