Being a Mazama doesn’t stop at membership. Hikes, climbs, and education programs are led entirely by volunteers who have pursued additional, rigorous training over the course of their lives to become highly experienced in outdoor recreation and safety.

Volunteerism is one of our core values. When reviewing applications for education programs like BCEP and ICS, leaders may take into consideration whether you demonstrate your commitment to the time involved through prior service to the Mazamas. Consider joining a committee, tending trails, or jumping in on projects wherever you hear a need, and you’re bound to go far.
