5th West Van The annual Mountaineering Camps are a project of the 1st Mountaineers. We believe that there is nothing that young people cannot do if we give them the chance! These camps are one of the opportunities that we provide for young Canadians to experience a real challenge and a true adventure.

You can track us live on-line on all our adventures via our DeLorme inReach MapShare page (satellite tracking, two-way text communications & emergency rescue beacon) here:


MCamp Badges 2013-2016.

The 1st Mountaineers also organize international expeditions and we invite any Canadian youth to join us on those adventures. To contact us, send an email to this link:  Email 1stMountaineers


In 2016, we climbed Mt. Rainier (14,410’/4,390m), Washington State – the biggest, baddest stratovolcano in the Pacific Northwest!

In 2013, we climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340’/5,985m), Tanzania – the highest free-standing mountain in the world, the highest mountain in Africa and one of the legendary “Seven Summits”!  An eleven minute video of that adventure is available here.

We have trekking and mountain climbing expeditions planned to Nepal (Everest Base Camp and Baden-Powell Peak) and Argentina (Aconcagua) and elsewhere in the future. As always, we invite all Canadian youth to join us on any of these adventures!

in which we really stop to look fear in the face . .  .
we must do that which we think we cannot.”
