The trip is full but taking standby candidates for cases of illness or injury

This is self guided and self catered trip. Evening meals will be group meal; kitchen is too small for all doing own meal. Breakfasts and lunches done individually.

Potential mountaineering objectives are Mt. Lefroy, Mt. Huber, Mt. Victoria, Glacier Peak and Ringrose Peak.

Alpine rock climbing of some of 10 pitches on south ridge of Wiwaxy Peak an alternative.

Wiwaxy col, Osea Lake, Opabin Plateau, Lake McArthur and Cathedral Basin are good day hiking trips.

Our section budgets these camps on break even basis. Cost is $395 per person (the website shows 17 participants as does not add in the  trip trip co-ordinator)

If trip gets cancelled or delayed after participants have paid the funds may be non-refundable.

All participants will need to follow any public health guidelines in effect at time of the camp.

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Rocky Mountain Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
