WHO WE ARE



A non-profit conservation, recreation, and education organization

The Adirondack Mountain Club is a non-profit organization that, through its various chapters and lodges, operates exclusively for conservation, recreation and educational purposes and whose assets and earnings profit no member, officer or employee.

The Genesee Valley Chapter is also a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization. We are extremely active in the scheduling of outings. Our trip calendar has something for everyone: hiking, backpacking, X-C skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking, canoeing, rock climbing and cave exploration. The difficulties of these trips range from easy for the beginner, to challenging for the expert. There's always at least one beginners trip in each of the categories so it's a great opportunity to try out a new sport. Through our conservation committee we keep current (and often take active stands) on such issues as acid rain, state land acquisition and local park planning.

Things to do

Participation in Club and Chapter affairs as an active member can be a satisfying and enjoyable experience. From the fellowship of simply attending meetings, to volunteer trail maintenance and litter clean-up, to chairing a committee, there are many rewarding activities in which to involve yourself.

Come to our monthly meetings

Perhaps the best way to find out about the Adirondack Mountain Club is to attend one of our meetings and discover for yourself what membership could mean to you. Our monthly meetings include a program that is both entertaining and informative and they are often preceded by an educational workshop. The meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month from September through June. We cordially invite you to attend our next meeting.
