Founded in 1939, the Dartmouth Outing Club of Northern California (DOCNC) is a group of Dartmouth alumni and alumnae interested in the great out-o-doors, mountain sports, conservation and good old College spirit. The DOCNC hosts events year-round in the Bay Area and is also the steward of an incredible cabin on the shores of Lake Mary on Donner Summit that is available for members to use. The DOCNC cabin is an incredible legacy of inestimable value to Dartmouth alumni and their families and friends.

1. Gain eligibility by attending a work weekend



The DOCNC community and cabin are incredible assets for all Dartmouth alumni/ae and their friends and families. The cabin is a truly magical place, a piece of New Hampshire transplanted to California. It has served as the entry point to Dartmouth on the West Coast for countless new students and graduates, and it provides a way of reconnecting with the Dartmouth community for more "mature" alumni/ae.

We have a close relationship with the College, but we do not receive any funding from them. We run the club and manage the cabin based solely on rental fees. Our budget has historically been small, as our needs have been few aside from property taxes and liability insurance. We count on your generous contributions to maintain this idyllic cabin in the Sierras.
