MOAC is an all-volunteer member organization. Members organize and lead all trips and activities from beginner to expert. Our outdoor activities range from peaceful and relaxing to challenging and full of excitement. From the extremes of winter camping, ice/rock climbing, strenuous hiking, mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, to the gentle sail, walk or snowshoe, MOAC has something to offer everyone. We are a diverse group with members of all ages and experience. Join MOAC to challenge yourself, share your outdoor skills and meet other outdoor adventurers!












Individual Memberships $20/year and Family Memberships $30/year

  • Volunteers Needed

    MOAC is a 100% volunteer organization. Things only happen if people step up to do them. MOAC needs:

    Keeper Of The Inventory – MOAC doesn’t own much but we need someone to keep what we do have under control. Mostly consumables we use at events (paper products, plastic silverware, etc).

    Please email board@moac.org if you are interested in helping out. MOAC only works because volunteers decide to make it happen!
