• The GMC is The Alpine Club of Canada's flagship program and has been the quintessential Club experience annually since 1906. Despite its name and focus on classic mountaineering, anyone has the chance to be a part of this piece of Canadian mountain history - whether you're an experienced mountaineer, a budding hiker or just wanting to enjoy the alpine environment and basecamp atmosphere.

General Mountaineering Camp

For 2020, we are excited to announce the GMC will be visiting the unique and beautiful alpine wilderness surrounding Mt. Mummery in the Western Rockies. This spectacular peak which stands just shy of 11,000 feet is surrounded by glaciers and several peaks with no recorded ascents. We also hope to gain access to the glacial expanse of the Freshfield Icecap from basecamp which offers several more 10,000 feet peaks including Mt. Freshfield.

Dates: Weekly from July 4th to Aug 15th

Artists Week at the GMC

Each year, the final week of the ACC’s General Mountaineering Camp is focussed on those seeking to push their creative, rather than mountaineering, boundaries. This camp is for the artist at heart! You can expect all the good things about a regular GMC week (helicopter access, fantastic food, ACMG guides, basecamp comfort etc.) but with a few slight differences designed to tailor our camp to the artist's tastes.

Dates: Aug 15th-20th, 2020
