FAQ: How To Register Kids for Youth Programs

A guide to how to register your kids for Pioneers, Explorers, MAC, and Summer Camp.

To register your kids for Pioneers, Explorers, Mountaineers Adventure Club, or summer camp, you need to:

  1. Become a member of The Mountaineers (with either a free guest membership or a paid family membership)
  2. Add your child(ren) to your membership
  3. Register for the program. 
Seattle MAC Registration is only open for the months of September and January of each year. Registration is closed the rest of the year.

Become a Member

To set up a Mountaineers account, visit the the membership page to sign up for a Family membership. Please note, any person under the age of 18 must be on a Family membership or Guest Family Membership. Your child needs an adult associated with their membership, so Student and Adult individual memberships are not what you are looking for. 

Add Children to your Membership

In order to add your child(ren) to your family membership, click on your name in the upper right hand corner of the screen to select "My Profile". When you get to your profile you will see :

Please enter your child's birthday and your email address in their email field to receive up to date information and to register for courses - our youth programs are age restricted, so you will not be able to register without a birthdate.

Once you have added your kiddoes to your account, you're ready to register your child for their program by visiting the course page.

Please note that under the registration is says "You are Registering: Name". If it says your name, please click on your name to open a drop down menu to choose your child's name to ensure that you are registering them and not yourself.
