CORE: A Hiking Club… and More

Hiking – Scrambling – Urban Walks – Cycling – Skiing – Snowshoeing – Camping – Social Events

CORE (Calgary Outdoor Recreation Enthusiasts) was formed in November 1999, primarily as a hiking club. Our activities now include: X-C skiing, snowshoeing, winter hiking, cycling, urban walking, occasional scrambling, camping, canoeing, tennis as well as social events. The club organizes scheduled in-person meetings with presentations. We also run summer and winter weekend getaways. We are a smaller club with a range of age groups and skill levels. We all, however, share an enthusiasm for and love of the outdoors.

COVID-19 – yes it is still with us – and the new variants mean we must still take it seriously. So continue to distance everywhere – and keep our members safe.

Thanks from the CORE Executive
