Qualified Youth Leader Resources

Junior MAC is a year-round outdoor adventure program for youth ages 12-13 who want to learn new outdoor skills and make lasting friendships with fellow adventurers. While there is a focus on developing climbing skills for those who are interested, the program and activities are driven entirely by the participants’ areas of interest. While both parents/guardians are not required to attend outings, a parent/guardian chaperone support is required for all trips. This is a great opportunity for you and your family to get outside together!

Note: Junior MAC membership is $900 for families joining in September. Students joining in the winter will be prorated. Members will have the option of paying up front or paying the annual fee in a series of installments. This is an annual club.

To join, members must pay the 1st of 4 installments (non-refundable) by October 31. They do so by using this website page to register. Be aware that the price displayed on this page is the price of the 1st installment and that the program costs $900. Interested members will have the opportunity to join in on at least one meeting and trip before paying and committing.
