Want to head for the hills? Come and join our Mindful Mountain Hiking Program for the summer and early autumn. Here's your opportunity to do day hikes in the Kananaskis and the Rockies accompanied by ACMG Hiking Guide Debbie Maclean and Dr. Maureen Angen. The pace of these hikes is designed to enable everyone to achieve the destination and enjoy the outing while keeping personal safety paramount. Here's how to participate:
STEP 1 - Inform Yourself
Download and read all the information provided in the documents below so that you may decide whether you wish to participate in the Mindful Mountain Hiking Program. All documents are in PDF format:
STEP 2 - Complete the Par-Q and, if required, Parmed-X forms
These forms are required by Wellspring to participate in certain programs. The forms must be on file at Carma House before you can register for any hike. Forms can be downloaded from our Forms page.
STEP 3 - Register for a Specific Hike
Registration for the hikes opens on the following dates:
- August 1st hike - registration opens on July 16th
- August 11th and 15th hikes – registration opens on August 1st
- September 15th and 19th hikes – registration opens the first business day in September (September 4th)
In order to register for the hikes call Jackie at Wellspring Calgary at 403.521.5292 ext.312. If the registration is full, you may ask to be placed on the waiting list. You may register for a maximum of one hike per month, but you can be asked to be on the waiting list for others.
STEP 4 - Go Hiking!
Meet the facilitators at the appointed place and time. There you will sign the ACMG waiver and leave for your amazing day in the mountains.
Important: Please inform Wellspring as soon as you know that you are not able to make a hike. This will allow someone on the waiting list to participate.
