What is Mountaineering Camp?

The Labour Day Mountaineering Camp is an annual VOC trips that first started in 2001. The idea behind the camp began as a fun camp style mountaineering and alpine climbing trip on the long weekend before the school year gets going. The camp is very informal, and is intended only for people who already have some mountaineering experience, but want to improve their skills and have a good time in the mountains.

What do I learn?

The first camp was held in 2001 in the Joffre Group.
