SMUX Trekking Team
Got an Attitude for Altitude?
The SMUX Trekking Team started as a platform for members passionate or interested about trekking, to prepare and build camaraderie for treks together.
Join us on our #TrekRunWednesdays or Saturday hikes, to meet new people and get your weekly dose of exercise! We also organise exciting special events during the midterm, summer, and winter breaks that will bring you and your friends to interesting places around Singapore! This is also a great opportunity to experience outdoor adventures and pick up some fun outdoor skills!
Look out for our upcoming events, hikes, runs and overseas expedition!
A 2-part event that introduces participants to the basics of navigation and camping skills while enjoying the outdoors.
One of our more popular events, where we hike from midnight and end just in time to catch the breathtaking sunrise!
Haven’t travelled overseas in years? Come scratch that itch with an extra dose of nature this coming winter break! Join us on our Instagram and Telegram channel to get the latest details.
OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
HOW TO JOIN THE CLUB?
Students do not need to audition/ interview to join SMUX Trekking. We are a club that is open to anyone with a readiness to explore the outdoors!
"In the recent months, I've been clocking 10k steps daily around my hood. This actually grew my interest to hike and explore even further/venture out into new places I've never been to before! Also, I love love nature, and would love to make friends over such activities" :)
- Lim Zi Qi, School Of Accountancy Year 1
"I enjoy hiking as I get to unwind in nature, I hope to find like-minded peers who share the same interests."
- Apple Lim, School Of Business Year 2
“It’s all about the first step! I never knew I could conquer a mountain, but I did it anyway! I joined SMUX Trekking by myself. Trekking is not just about sceneries, it’s also about introspection and thinking about life! SMUX formed a large part of my social circle in SMU!”
“I went to four different countries, camped overnight in Pulau Ubin thrice, found really peaceful & pretty places in SG to hike, and had my weekly dose of exercise, all with people whom I see around school! Loved every bit of it, truly some of my favourite times in SMU!”
