When you are ready to join, you will need to complete a

We are currently unable to allow individuals under 18 to
come away with us, unless a parent / guardian accompanies
you. Members are welcome to bring their children on club
meets provided they take full responsibility for the safety
and behaviour of their children and maintain close personal
supervision both on the hill and in the hut or camp site.
The club welcomes and encourages enthusiastic new members of all interests and abilities. The club does not undertake to train members in any mountain activities and emphasises that members must take full responsibility for their own safety in the mountains. The club does not run a formal training programme, however experienced members of the club may introduce novices to activities on an informal basis and can suggest training courses people may find useful. We expect members to know the BMC participation statement before they join.
