In order to receive all Club-related news, emails and have access to events and the membership list, you MUST set up a groupspaces account via the Join Now button on our home page. It is your responsibility to do this as you set your own password; we cannot do it for you. The Club cannot send you emails or important updates without you joining groupspaces.
All memberships require Club approval and until then are pending. Once we approve your membership and receive payment, we will activate your membership. At that point, when you log in, you will be able to see the member-only content on this site.
We prefer you pay by credit card online. If you choose not to, then mail your cheque + filled in membership form and signed waiver to:
VOCW PO Box 2681 Main Post Office Vancouver, BC V6B 3W8
IMPORTANT: If you mail in your payment and waiver, you still must create a groupspaces account in order to receive all Club-related news, emails, access to events and the membership list. To do so, simply click on the green "New Member? Join Now" button on the home page. It is your responsibility to do this, as you set your own password; we cannot do it for you. The Club cannot send you updates without you joining groupspaces.
Come to a Meeting
You're welcome to attend one of the monthly gatherings of the VOCW as our guest, or one outdoor activity to see what it's like. We plan activities for the month ahead and we usually have a guest speaker or presentation about a recent outdoor adventure. You can also sign up as a member at the meeting.
We meet 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm on the second Wednesday of every month (except July and August) at the ANZA Club, 3 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver. (Door at corner of 8th and Ontario.)
In July, the VOCW hosts a summer picnic for members in John Hendry Park at the covered picnic table area near Trout Lake beach. The picnic supper is followed by summer activity planning. There is generally no club gathering in August.
