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.
