This year we have Brent Peters ACMG Guide and a
practicum guide running a week of Section Camp!
This will be an instructional week suited to
people who have either taken part in the AMP
mentor program or wished they had!
The goal of the AMP program is to develop
stronger mountaineering base of trip leaders
and participants in the Alpine Club. Since this
is a mentorship event, participants are
expected to make decisions and actively
participate in trip organization.
For more details on the AMP program refer to
the ACC site http://www.acccalgary.ca/alpine-
This instructional week will be suited to
AMP Level 2 - “advanced beginners” to
“intermediate” mountaineers who have done a
handful of alpine and lots of scrambling or ski
mountaineering trips in order to allow them to
move from PD to AD level and AMP Level 3 -
intermediate members to increase their
confidence in leading alpine trips at the PD+
and AD level. There will be a few days of
instruction followed by some peak days with the
more experienced participants leading a rope
with Brent and the practicum on hand to observe
+ comment, (this of course would be dependent
on the skill level of the participants).
Interested? Then sign up for the week
and download the application form, once
completed please email it to Clare
