To be “stoked” is to be completely and intensely enthusiastic, exhilarated, or excited about something. Those who are stoked all of the time know this; being stoked is the epitome of all being. When one is stoked, there is no limit to what one can do.
The Excursion Club at UCSB is an entirely student run, volunteer organization that is committed to getting people stoked on the outdoors. In a society drifting towards complete technological inundation, it is becoming ever easier to lose sight of the beauty and fulfillment that nature provides. The Excursion Club exists to combat this through the connection of like-minded individuals and by providing all of the necessary gear to partake in outdoor activities as inexpensively as possible.
The existence of the club is based entirely upon the concept of connecting those who already enjoy the outdoors, as well as providing those with little to no outdoor experience with the knowledge, resources, opportunities, and support to step outside of their comfort zone and realize what they’ve been missing out on.
The Excursion Club has tons of gear and equipment available to our members for free. All gear and equipment has limited availability, and members are allowed to check them out for a limited time on a first-come, first-serve basis.
