August Camp

The AMC’s August Camp changes its location each year to take advantage of hiking opportunities throughout North America. 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.

In 2018 August Camp returns to a special site in the North Cascades of Washington State on the banks of the Skagit River in Concrete, WA. Opportunities for hiking, biking and water-based activities abound. Camp in the shadow of glaciated Mount Baker and hike in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.
