Swaledale Outdoor Club welcomes new members.
Annual Adult membership (18 and over) costs £15 and Junior membership (age 16 or 17) costs £7.50. All children of an Adult member who are aged 17 and under are automatically members of SOC.
Children aged 15 and under must be accompanied by a parent who is a member. Junior members aged 16 and 17 must be accompanied by a parent or nominated responsible adult. The responsible adult must be nominated by the person’s parent. The parent or responsible adult does not need to be a member of Swaledale Outdoor Club in order to provide the support needed.
If you already know what the club does, please click on the 'Join SOC' button on the left side of this page to join the club. Alternatively we would like you to come along to one or two programmed events without obligation, so that you can meet us, try the club out and make sure it is right for you. If you would like to contact activity organisers and arrange to come out then click on the contact us tab above. A full list of club contacts will be shown and, by clicking on the name and entering your information, the organiser will be able to respond to your enquiry.
