The Mountaineers Summer Camp program begins late June and runs through late August. Our first group of campers join us from Brettler Family Place, here in Magnuson Park. We are so thrilled to kick off this summer with a fantastic group of outdoor enthusiasts!
Last month we encouraged you to sign a petition in support of the Mountains to Sound Greenway being designated as a National Heritage Area. Over 3,000 of you gave your support, and we are excited to announce that legislation was introduced yesterday in the House and Senate!
A record low amount of snow left the Basic Climbing Course leaders brainstorming ways to evaluate students during their final Field Trip for the course: Hard Snow and Ice Axe Self-Arrest. A peak into the past helped our instructors formulate a plan!
I love the commitment that the Mountaineers has to the community, the environment and its members. We are always trying to grow, improve and lead by example. Volunteers have a voice here and there is such a commitment to excellence it's inspiring to be a part of that process."
