Membership Dues

Our annual club memberships expire on November 30. New members that pay their membership after October 1 get a two-month bonus with their new membership, which is valid until November 30, the following year. Spread the word to your friends who like to hike but have not yet joined a hiking club. Our club dues are a bargain at $25/year!

Multiple days hiking trips in the fall

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we did not have our regular week-long summer camp in 2019 and 2020, although we had several multiple-day outings. The most recent one was the three-day extravaganza in Whistler. For this fall, we are planning at least two more multiple-day days hiking events: Golden Ears and Manning Parks are on our radar for October.

COVID-19 and Club activities

We kept our club’s activities up to date and aligned with the evolution of the pandemic and Provincial Health regulations.

  • Our COVID-19 safety plan is available from our homepage.
  • We strongly encourage all participants to club activities to be fully vaccinated.
