The Mountaineers is proud to host an Adventure Club in Seattle and Tacoma. The Adventure Club is a year-round outdoor adventure program for youth of ages 14-20. Currently youth from more than 15 high schools - from Bellingham to Issaquah and West Seattle to Tacoma - make up our Seattle and Tacoma Clubs. Members meet monthly to plan outings and learn skills needed to participate.

The youth members plan all of their outings, with guidance from adult advisers. From single-day outings to week long camping trips, activities have included rock climbing, whitewater rafting, hiking, car camping, snow-cave camping, cross-country skiing and mountaineering. While attendance at all meetings is not required, the more meetings and outings you attend, the more you get out of the program!

From single-day outings to week long camping trips, activities have included rock climbing, whitewater rafting, hiking, car camping, snow-cave camping, cross-country skiing and mountaineering.

PLEASE NOTE: Youth must be Mountaineers Members before enrolling.  MAC membership is $150 the first month, and $80 each month after.  No dues will be collected in the month of September.  Participants must enroll online.  Payment is due by the 5th of each month.  Because MAC is a year-round program, Participants can only enroll in September and January.  If membership is dropped for failure to pay dues, participants cannot re-enroll until the next enrollment period.
