An important part of the CMC is volunteer-organised trips. Many members will have had their first alpine experiences on club trips. It is thanks to CMC members organising CMC Club Trips that we can share our skills & knowledge with others to enjoy the mountains around Canterbury and beyond.
Lead a Trip!
We are always looking for people to volunteer and lead some trips. The Trips Officer will help you to formulate your idea and advertise it to the club via the website, email and Facebook group. Trips are easy to organise with our slick system!
- Send your CMC Club Trip plan to the Trips Officer: Send Email
- Alternatively, download the CMC Club Trip Template and email it to [email protected].
Any questions, get in touch with the Trips Officer: [email protected].
- Email the Trips Officer to open up your next trip to other members!

Thursday Club Nights
Thursday nights are CMC club nights! Most Thursdays there will be an evening climbing session organised, either in the Port Hills throughout summer or at the YMCA or Uprising during winter. These typically start from 5pm and are finished off at a local pub for food & drinks afterward. Check the CMC Facebook Group for details, these are usually last minute by a club member.
