Life’s an Adventure; Join the Club!

What is OutHounds Adventure Club?

Adventure Club is MORE than a hiking group. Although we are based out of New Bedford, MA, we travel all over Southern New England in search of adventure! We are a community of people and canine companions who through curated outings help each other by completing tasks and overcoming obstacles along the way. Our Adventure Guides scout trails from Providence, RI to Cape Cod, MA, create programs, and help guide Adventurers to see their world with FRESH eyes and an OPEN heart. In the spirit of Adventure Learning, we assist and encourage one another to try new things and take acceptable risks. Our marquee Adventures help foster a love and appreciation for the natural environment and thus a desire to enact positive change!

Who is it for? What if I don’t have a dog?

Simply put; OutHounds Adventures is for EVERYONE! We welcome people with dogs; we welcome people without dogs. We welcome all ages and skill levels. As long as you want to GET UP and GET OUT and rediscover your inner child, OHAC is for YOU!

When Signing up for an Adventure, check the description and the coded difficulty level to be sure to pick an Adventure that is right for you!
