AMC Vaccination Policy
AMC will require program participants be fully vaccinated, or share the results of a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of your program start. Any COVID-19 vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) is an acceptable vaccine for the purposes of this policy. Fully vaccinated is defined by the CDC here. Campers will need to submit a copy of their vaccination card with their registration forms once they have been accepted to camp (in late January).


August Camp is the longest-running tradition in Appalachian Mountain Club’s history, dating all the way back to 1887.  The location of camp changes every year, ranging from Maine to Washington and many points in between.  Learn more about why so many people return year after year to be part of such a unique summer camp experience – exploring nature, hiking, meeting new friends and sharing the day’s adventures surrounded by the beauty of North America.
