The mountains are calling and I must go
- John Muir -
Although this quote does get overused in some ways, it’s relevant to the very question you might be asking. Since its inception in 1906, the community within the club is our greatest strength and our volunteers serve as the foundation that fuels that strength. As you attend events you will not only gain a culture to be a part of but also a greater appreciation for the behind the scenes work that goes on. Before you know it you’ll find yourself deeply involved in a rich and rewarding experience! When the mountains call, the club always stands up to answer.
The largest mountain culture film festival in the world happens for one night in Winnipeg.
Several months of planning goes into this, and numerous volunteers are needed to help ensure the night goes smoothly.
One of the best ways to learn is through leadership. We host many activities throughout the summer and winter, from rock climbing and hiking to ice climbing, snowshoeing and cross country skiing.
Perks of being a trip leader include discounts with Outdoor Research, subsidized Wilderness First Aid training, and a candidate for The North Face Leadership Development Course.
Each year ACC Manitoba hosts a cliff cleanup at several of Northwestern Ontario rock climbing crags, which is usually an engaging and fun weekend of rappelling, scraping, fixing, building, and camping around a fireside.
ACC Manitoba is governed by the Section Executive, which is a group of dedicated members who commit to a minimum of a two-year term, which are staggered to provide opportunities each year for members to join the team.
