ACC OTTAWA SUMMER CAMP – AUG 6 to 13

ROGERS PASS – GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, Rogers Pass PromoBC

The 2016 fully-catered ACC Ottawa Summer Camp returns to the A.O. Wheeler Hut in Rogers Pass, located within Glacier National Park – a one-hour drive northwest of Golden, BC on the Trans-Canada Highway or a four-hour drive from Calgary Airport.

The Rogers Pass area offers a wide array of hiking opportunities. The Columbia Mountains are steep and the valleys narrow, allowing for a few easy hikes and a good number of challenging ones. Trail routings reflect their origins, as most were originally built to provide access to mountain climbs and glaciers!  Most of the Illecillewaet-area day hikes involve an elevation gain of about 1,000 meters between the start of the trail and the “End of Trail” sign. However, trails are well-constructed and well-marked; and they will take you to stunning ridges and viewpoints.

Rogers Pass Promo - HutThe Wheeler Hut, named after one of the ACC’s co-founders, is the only alpine hut easily accessed by road – a mere three-minute walk from the parking area. The building is one of the largest of the ACC huts, with a second-floor sleeping area. Downstairs, there is a large kitchen, a separate living/dining room with fireplace and a gear room.

The camp fee includes hut accommodation for the week and ‘three plus’ meals per day (starting with dinner on Aug 6 and ending with breakfast on Aug 13) – provisioned and prepared by our fantastic cook.

Located in the heart of the Selkirk range of the Columbia Mountains, the camp is suited to hikers and scramblers 18 years of age and up.

Estimated cost for the 2016 Rogers Pass Camp is $750 to $800.

Registration is open – for ACC Ottawa members.

You are invited to attend the ACC Ottawa Annual Dinner with Guest Speakers Anda Bruinsma and Arlene Gregoire. It’s an evening with good friends, great food and opportunities to meet and mingle with fellow outdoor enthusiasts. After dinner, our guest speakers, Anda and Arlene, will tell us about their fantastic adventure hiking the Appalachian Trail – end to end.McAfee Knob - Appalachian Trail (Something Original) - Annual Dinner Announcement

1 Trail … 2 Women … 5 Months … 14 States … 3,540 km

Starting in Springer, Georgia – on March 8 2015 – Anda and Arlene took their first step on the Appalachian Trail. Some 5 million steps later – on August 7 – they reached the end of the trail on Mount Katahdin, Maine. The Trail is a long and grueling adventure; only 20 per cent of those who start the hike in Georgia actually make it to the end in Maine. The total elevation gain hiking the entire Trail is equivalent to climbing Mount Everest 16 times! “It’s not something that’s going to be over fast. It was full of highs and lows. It was eat, walk, eat, walk, sleep … we were walking every day, weeks at a time.” says Anda.

Anda and Arlene will tell us about their adventures on the Appalachian Trail – what motivated them to undertake this challenge; how they prepared; how they persevered though the weather and the terrain; the beauty of the trail; some of the thru-hikers they encountered on the trail; and the ‘trail magic’ they experienced.

Anda and Arlene were motivated by another important goal: to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and their walk was a fund-raiser. To date, they have raised nearly $30,000. ACC Ottawa will be making a donation to the Alzheimer Society on behalf of Anda and Arlene.

Cost: $37.50 for ACC Members; $42.50 for Non-Members

When: Saturday January 23 @ 6:00pm

Where: Algonquin College International Restaurant – 1385 Woodroofe Ave, Building H101
