Come hike and relax in beautiful Evans Notch at AMC’s historic Cold River Camp, jewel of the White Mountains.
The Cold River Camp is happy to announce that they are accepting reservations for the 2021 Summer (June 27 through August 28) and Fall Extension (August 28 through September 5) Seasons.
The Appalachian Mountain Club and its volunteer-led chapters including the Western Massachusetts chapter, are outraged by the increase in senseless and racist acts against Asian and Pacific Islander Americans across the country, culminating in the shocking murders of six women of Asian descent in the Atlanta area earlier this month.
Every year, AMC Volunteers provide over 500,000 hours in support of AMC’s Mission and Vision to get people outdoors, help them gain experience and expertise there so they fall in love with and ultimately act to protect the beautiful places we love in the Northeast and Mid Atlantic.
