The Appalachian Mountain Club is the nation's oldest outdoor recreation and conservation organization. Local AMC chapters sponsor thousands of activities a year, many for families. Anyone can participate.

Since 1876, the AMC has promoted the protection, enjoyment, and wise use of the mountains, rivers, and trails of the Northeast. The AMC has nearly 90,000 members in 12 chapters, and over 450 full time and seasonal staff.

The AMC hosts 8,000+ outings each year, from local chapter activities to major excursions worldwide, for every level and outdoor interest from hiking and climbing to paddling to snowshoeing and skiing.
