The Delaware Valley Chapter of AMC has over 5,000 members in Eastern Pennsylvania, Middle & Southern NJ, and Delaware. The Chapter offers day hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, bicycling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, winter mountaineering, trail maintenance, conservation cleanups, educational workshops, meetings and programs throughout the year. Events are led by volunteers. If you're new to hiking and such outdoor activities, be sure to read our "getting started" pamphlet, How to Survive in the Wilds of the Delaware Valley: A Guide to Day Hiking With the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club.
In addition to the main body of the chapter, centered in Southeastern PA, there are two sub-groups within the chapter to better meet the needs of our geographically dispersed members. The Lehigh Valley Group holds meetings in Bethlehem, PA; the Mid-Jersey Group holds meetings in central New Jersey. Both sub-groups schedule activities and events that are also part of the Delaware Valley schedule. See the social events page for more info.
