Established in 1967 the Outdoor Club of South Jersey is a not for profit organization dedicated to promoting hiking, bicycling, kayaking/canoeing, xc skiing, backpacking, camping and trail maintenance for fun, fitness and friendship. These outdoor activities are all found on the respective Meetup calendars and are lead by volunteer members of the club.

ATTENTION OCSJ MEMBERS The 2020 OCSJ photo contest has begun.
We are doing things a little different this year, as this is a year unlike any other.
Sorry to say, we will not be printing a calendar, but we will make it available for printing it at home.
As usual, there will be the twelve month winners plus the top photograph for the cover.
Now, here is something new.
All thirteen winners will have their photographs reproduced on canvas.
So, hang on to your best pictures from any OCSJ outing taken between September 1, 2019 until October 31, 2020.
Your photo could be selected to appear on the pages of our 2021 OCSJ calendar and reproduced on canvas to be hung on your wall with pride.
