August Camp 2012 has Completed

August Camp  in Whistler, British Columbia  celebrated the 125th anniversary of August Camp, AMC’s oldest tradition. Camp was located near the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and the hiking and other activities are fabulous. August Camp, a full-service tent village for 64 campers each week, offers multiple hikes daily for all levels of ability, several overnights and a number of water-based activities, as well as nightly campfires and plentiful home-cooked meals.

Sanitary facilities and stalls for using your solar showers are provided. Camp runs from July 14 to August 11, 2012, with stays of one or two weeks available.

Included is van transport to and from the Vancouver airport and to/from daily hikes and other offered activities.

Join in hikes or relax around camp and enjoy the scenery. We are planning some fun events to celebrate our anniversary, so stay tuned to our web site for more details.

Week 1: July 14 - July 21
