Ottawa Outdoor Club

Pay trip fees - participant

Types of fees

As a trip participant, there are occasionally some fees that you must pay to the Club. The Club charges fees for the following:

  • non-member activity fees
    • if you become a member within 7 days of paying this fee, you can deduct the amount paid from your membership registration fee
  • rental of some equipment

You can pay either by Interac email transfer, by PayPal, or (not preferred) by sending a cheque to the treasurer.

How to make a payment

To pay, calculate the full amount of non-member activity fees and equipment rental fees owing and either

  • pay by Interac email transfer
    • please use your bank's website to send the Interac etransfer amount to payactivityfees(at)
    • please indicate what the payment covers, including the date(s) of the activity; it helps our Treasurer immensely
    • there is no security question; the payment will be deposited automatically
  • pay by credit card or PayPal via PayPal
    • detailed instructions for paying by credit card (via PayPal) or by PayPal directly are provided below
  • pay by cheque (only if necessary - electronic payment is strongly preferred)
    • write a cheque to “OOC” for the amount that you collected
    • write the date and activity information (e.g., "hike" or "snowshoe rental") on the Memo line of the cheque
    • snail-mail it to the OOC Treasurer at the Club's postal address
    • inform the Treasurer by email (treasurer(at) that you delivered a cheque, if you did not deliver it to the Treasurer directly

Pay by credit card (via PayPal) or by PayPal directly

To pay by credit card, we use PayPal. You don't need a PayPal account to pay by credit card.

Each time you click on an Add to Cart button, your PayPal shopping cart will be displayed. There, you can adjust quantities of or remove any chosen items. When you view the cart or when you check out, you will be taken to the PayPal page, where you will have the opportunity to adjust / correct the quantity. We recommend selecting one of each of the payment types you need to make and then adjusting the quantities when you check out.

All financial transactions occur on PayPal's secure site. No credit card or contact information is seen by or recorded on the Club's site. PayPal will notify the Treasurer once the transaction has completed successfully.


As an example, if you are a non-member ($5) using one of our canoes ($5) for a day trip, do the following:

  • click on the Add to Cart button for Single-day activity and then return to this page
  • click on the Add to Cart button for Canoe usage fee / Single-day usage (one person) and then return to this page
  • click on one of the Check Out buttons to make your payment

If, as a slightly different example, you're paying both for you and your partner, increase the count of each to two on the shopping cart page.
