ADK-GVC Young Members


The ADK-GVC YMs are a group of outdoor enthusiasts in their 20s, and 30s and 40s who like to have fun outdoors—but anyone who is young at heart is welcome at all of our activities! We are interested in conservation, education and, of course, recreation.

We host many activities including local day trips, as well as weekend trips, hiking, paddling, backpacking, camping, and biking. ADK-GVC YMs also do a lot of fun stuff like ice skating, happy hours, and monthly social gatherings. Attend one of our upcoming events, and be prepared to have fun, meet new people, and share ideas for future activities.

We cater to all ability levels, from first-timer to advanced. You don’t need to be a member of the ADK club to attend events—all are welcome. See you outdoors!

Just like any other part of the Club, none of the Young Members activities would happen without volunteers. We need you to get involved by leading an activity or organizing a social outing. Do you have an idea for a fun activity? Let us know!

"Everyone must believe in something--
I believe I'll go canoeing" -Henry David Thoreau

Our objectives are to enhance the ADK experience by:

  • providing opportunities to meet other members
  • encouraging participation in activities sponsored by the chapter and club
  • educating new and young members about programs and events sponsored by the Education, Conservation, Trails, Waterways and other committees.

We have been very active over the past few years, and this year we are looking to have many more activities! Please follow our events and come out to an activity. You can find all of our events listed here on our website or follow us on Facebook or join our Google Group.

If you have any questions about what we do, ideas for activities, or questions about how you can get involved, please to hesitate to email me.

Hope to see you outdoors!
