Navigate to Outlook and go to the calendar tab (if it doesn't open automatically). You will now see a new calendar under 'Other Calendars' with the name of the calendar you selected.

***NOTE: The calendar will automatically sync between Outlook and SharePoint.  So, if you make changes in SharePoint, it syncs back to Outlook; if changed in Outlook, it syncs to SharePoint.***
