Junior MAC - Seattle - 2022

Youth Program

Junior MAC

Jr. Mountaineers Adventure Club (Jr. MAC) is a year round program for youth ages 12 - 13.

Info
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

THE CLUB

Jr. 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. The program is designed to expose youth to a variety of outdoor activities, including climbing, hiking, paddling, xc skiing, and more. While both parents/guardians are not required to attend outings, parent/guardian chaperone support is required for all trips (this could be another Jr. MACer's parent/guardian). This is a great opportunity for you to get outside with your Jr. MACer!

We also offer climbing skills sessions and leadership opportunities for the parents! Starting this year, parents will have the opportunity to take part in a climbing skills series, learning what it takes to set up and take down ropes from the top of a climb. We will also be offering a leadership series, providing the tools and guidance in planning and leading trips for the clubs.

PRICING

Jr. MAC membership is $1000 for families joining in October. 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 page to register. Be aware that the price displayed on this page is the price of the 1st installment and that the program costs $1000. Interested members will have the opportunity to join in on at least one meeting and trip before paying and committing.

We offer financial assistance! To apply for financial assistance click here.
