Appalachian Mountain Club

Open Houses

Each month take advantage of an opportunity to join us at an open house in our NYC office next to Central Park. It doesn’t matter if you’re totally new to AMC, just joined, or are a veteran of the club; everyone is welcome to attend! We’ll be giving a quick presentation about the AMC and activities the New York-North Jersey Chapter offers.

You’ll be able to ask questions to and hear from current AMC members, volunteers, and employees. We’re always excited to help connect you to the outdoors and find out what makes you passionate about the natural world.

Light refreshments will be provided.

AMC’s Expedition Socials:

Each month the AMC Expedition Social team will select an interesting location to meet up with members from one of our activity committees. Then we’ll invite everyone any anyone to join us in a discussion that highlights topics like Hiking, Climbing, Biking, Skiing, Backpacking, and more. We’ll discuss what interests us in that activity, how to get started, and why it’s great to get out with the AMC. Our mission is to provide you with the knowledge, tools, and confidence you need to get outdoors!
