Where to pay for an Outdoor Club membership or trip/event

De Anza College students/staff can pay for a De Anza College Outdoor Club membership, trip or event at various places.

You can meet us and do required paperwork at one of the locations/ times listed at Outdoor Club Coming Attractions

OR, once you are sure you are going on an event/trip, and have done the paperwork and are sure what you should pay for it, you can go to Student Accounts, located in the lower level of the Campus Center

Please note:

Interesting weather does not cancel club events.***NO REFUNDS, except if the club cancels the trip before the trip starts ***.

You can’t just show up for an off-campus event and expect to participate without having signed up (trip agreement/releases) in advance in person. If you pay for the trip before doing paperwork and then do not get the paperwork done and in the hands of the faculty advisor before the trip, you will not get a refund and can not just show up for the trip and try to participate.

If you sign up and pay for a trip the quarter before the trip and it turns out that are not a student during the quarter the trip happens (and/or are not a DASB card holder) and therefore can’t go on the trip, you will not get a refund and can not just show up for the trip and try to participate.

You can’t sign up on-line, by email or at this website, each student must appear in person to sign up. Your friend or even your spouse can’t sign the required trip agreement. If you are under 18 a parent/guardian will also need appear in person to sign the paperwork.

It can take a lot of time to fill out all the needed paperwork. Signing up for off campus events will go faster if you have done one of the releases in advance, go to: field trip release form.

You always need to bring proof you are a De Anza student to be able to sign up for an event. Please read details at the individual trip webpages before you come to sign up.

Only currently enrolled De Anza students can go on club events. Even though Foothill is in the same district, enrollment or employment at Foothill does not qualify anyone to go with us. People who want to go on an event between quarters must have been enrolled the previous quarter, or already be enrolled in the following quarter. For example, to go on a late summer trip you need to have been enrolled summer quarter or be already enrolled in fall quarter. To go on a spring break trip you need to be already enrolled in spring quarter. Faculty are subject to various rules depending on whether they are full time, ten month, part time, on sabbatical or Article 19 and should contact the club advisor well in advance of an event they want to participate in.


The Outdoor Club is a completely volunteer organization, neither the officers nor the advisor are paid. As a result you will not get the same ‘service’ from us as from a professional group. We can’t always find a way to sign up people who can’t make it to our regular meetings, to a class when we are there, or to a table we have on campus. If none of the times we have available for signups are convenient for you, we don’t have enough people to be able to meet personally with you and sign you up.

People who wait until the last minute to sign up are sometimes left out.


Years ago the college made the club remove a Facebook page that some club members had made without consulting the club Executive Board (officers), and did not maintain. So now the De Anza College Outdoor Club does not have a Facebook page. Anything you find about the De Anza Outdoor Club on Facebook is not endorsed or sponsored by the De Anza Outdoor Club, De Anza College or the De Anza Foothill District.
