Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to be a member of AMC to participate in activities? No. We even encourage you to first participate in a few different activities with different leaders to get a real understanding and feel for how the club works. Then after you realize how much fun you are having, we do encourage you to become a member and support the AMC and its mission of outdoor recreation, education and stewardship.

Can I be affiliated with more than one chapter at a time? No.

Can I participate in the activities of other chapters? Yes, as an AMC member you may participate in any of the other 11 chapters’ activities. You may be screened by a leader who will ask about your fitness, skills and equipment, depending on the type and difficulty of the activity.

Why am I screened by a leader before I am allowed to participate on certain trips? Some of our activities involve a little more risk and difficulty. And so not only for your enjoyment of the trip but your fellow participants as well, leaders will screen you to be sure you are up to the adventure. Some activities require special skills and equipment, and the leader may ask about theses.
