There are MANY ways in which you can get involved, from providing administrative support, to managing a program the size of a small business like an outdoor center or climbing program. You can choose to volunteer for a single event like the Banff Mountain Film Festival, help at a beach clean up, or get involved on a deeper level as a leader with one of our activities or courses. The most common way people get involved is by taking one of our courses, joining the committee that offers it, and/or becoming a trip leader or instructor.
