Founded in 1982, The Central Indiana Wilderness Club (CIWC) is a non-profit volunteer-run club organized for the purpose of providing affordable wilderness adventures. Each year CIWC conducts trips ranging in length from one to ten days to destinations as diverse as southern Indiana, the Grand Canyon and the Smokey Mountains. We have trips for beginners and those with lots of outdoor experience. On a CIWC trip you will have the opportunity to explore new places and meet new friends. Our trips are small and friendly, averaging eight people per trip, organized by a CIWC member. Our membership includes members who vary widely in age, experience and ability.
Based in central Indiana, our activities include backpacking, camping, hiking, bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, cross-country skiing, and spelunking.
