NUcomers 2023

What is NUcomers??

NUcomers is our MASSIVE annual 3-night camping trip for newcomers to our club that goes from Friday October 6th to Monday October 9th at the NUHOC Loj up in Shelburne, New Hampshire!! It’s a great weekend filled with hiking, climbing, beautiful scenery, awesome people, s’mores, camping, swimming, apple picking, and lots more!! NUcomers is the perfect opportunity to spend time outside in the incredible fall foliage, make tons of brand new friends, and learn more about everything NUHOC does!! We bring over 100 students up to the Loj, so its a great way to get involved in NUHOC by meeting tons of cool people!! Group food and transportation is included in the $35 ticket price, and gear rentals will be available on a first come first serve for those who need them. We hope to see you there!

How will the trip work?

Once you’ve purchased a ticket, you will receive email communications with more trip info, including a packing list. Our weekly meeting on Wednesday 10/4 will be dedicated to NUcomers preparation, so make sure to attend for detailed information and an opportunity to ask any questions. We will meet on Friday 10/6 at 6:30pm at BofA on Forsyth St, where everybody will be sorted into vans and cars to be driven up to the Loj. At the Loj you will sign in, receive any necessary gear rentals, and set up your tent! On Saturday morning we’ll have breakfast, then our trip leaders will each announce the trips that they are leading, so you can pick whatever activity you would like to do for the day! After an awesome day of adventures, you’ll return to the Loj for dinner and hanging out around the campfire!! Repeat on Sunday, then pack up on Monday morning (it’s Indigenous People’s day so don’t worry about missing class/co-op) and return to Boston in the early afternoon. More details will be given as we get closer to the trip!

How do I sign up?
Signups will be posted via Google Form in the NUHOC Slack General channel after the club meeting on 9/27. Stay tuned to Slack and meetings for more info as we get closer to the trip!
