August Camp


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, Yellowstone vicinity of Wyoming; the High Sierra in California; North Cascades in Washington, Mt. Rainier in Washington.

In 2017 August Camp is located at another new location, this time near the Columbia River Gorge, just north of the Bridge of the Gods, where the Pacific Crest Trail crosses the mighty Columbia River. Camp lies west of Stabler, WA, in the shadows of Mounts Hood, Adams and St. Helens and offers not only great hiking but also the opportunity for rafting, biking and other excursions.
