Volunteer-led Camps and Cabins

Volunteer Camps and Cabins

Meet life-long friends and enjoy the splendor of AMC's region at one of our volunteer-led camps and cabins.

Our seasonal, full service camps are managed by experienced volunteers and located in places like Acadia National Park and New Hampshire’s Lakes Region. All offer private cabin or fixed tent accommodations and family style meals. Guests stay for a week in summer, and many families return year after year to enjoy daily activities, evening programs, and the company of other outdoors people. AMC also offers a variety of roadside and backcountry cabin rentals, some of which hold volunteer-led programs in summer and fall. These locations are ideal for groups looking to explore on their own and cook their own meals, or for people looking for a remote, backcountry experience.

August Camp

August Camp, a long standing AMC tradition, is located in a different location each summer, and offers daily excursions, tent camping, and group meals. Recent sites have included: Canadian Rockies, Central Cascades in Oregon, the Olympic Peninsula; the High Sierra in California; the Columbia River Gorge and Mt. Rainier in Washington.
