The Alpine Club of Canada


We believe mountaineering (in all its forms) provides significant mental and physical health benefits to participants and connects them with their mountain environments so that they’ll help to protect them. For this reason, ACC Adventures aims to grow and develop Canada’s mountaineering community, make it accessible to everyone, and to promote considerate, responsible, best practices amongst its members.


Why Choose the ACC for your Camp or Skills Course?
  • Local Knowledge – based out of Canmore, AB, we know the Rockies region and the best local caterers, guides and porters Experience – organizing fantastic mountain adventures since 1906
  • Dedicated resources – full-time office staff, ACMG guides and group equipment on-hand to ensure your trip runs smoothly
  • Not-for-profit – any money we make on camps and courses is reinvested into providing services for our members and the mountain community
  • Something for everyone – novice or expert, young or old, rich or poor, we have an offering for every activity and demographic

Where does your registration fee go?

For every participant on our camps and courses, $50 goes towards the ACC's Leadership Fund. This fund provides subsidized leadership courses and resources for ACC Section volunteer trip leaders, who are so vital to the ACC at a grassroots level and the mountain community as a whole. Come on one of our camps or courses knowing a small part of your registration fee is securing the next generation of mountain leaders and the ACC's future.
