  • Participants might learn something, but there is no direct educational component.
  • Registration and signed waiver are required.
  • Rosters must be updated and the activity closed when complete.
  • All trips are in the Find Activities search.

Routes & Places

We use Routes & Places as the starting point for adding all our activities—trips, clinics & seminars, and course lectures & field trips.

Need a new one? Review How to Request New or Updated Routes & Places to learn all about Routes & Place and how to add one.

Found a route/place that needs updated or could be improved? Have new images or resources to add to an existing route/place? Please complete the Route/Place Updates, Images & Resources form.


Clinics & Seminars

  • A one-day or one-weekend, skill-based activity like learning how to roll a kayak or refreshing steep snow climbing skills.
  • They are connected to a route/place to prevent conflicts at that location.
  • Registration and signed waiver are required.
  • Rosters must be updated and the activity closed when complete.
  • All clinics and seminars are in the Find Activities and Find Courses, Clinics & Seminars searches.
  • Clinics or Seminars for which you are registered (participant or leader) are listed on your profile's My Activities page.

Has your committee sponsored this clinic before? If so, find the route/place where the clinic or seminar is happening and choose the "Seminar or clinic" radio button:

COURSES with lectures & field trips

  • Multi-day, multi-part, skill-based education.
  • Includes more than one course-related activity like lectures, workshops, field trips, and practice sessions. If your course is only one day then it should be listed as a clinic or seminar!
  • Registration and signed waiver are required.
  • Ability to manage students, graduates, equivalency candidates, and equivalents.
  • All courses are in the Find Course, Clinics & Seminars search.
  • Courses and their activities, clinics, and seminars for which you are registered (student, graduate, leader or instructor) are listed on your profile's My Courses page.

Because courses have multiple components, they are a bit more complicated to set up then any of other types of programs we schedule. To learn about scheduling  a course, visit:
