Leader Resources

AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.

Welcome to our Leader Resources Pages!

Our trip leaders are all volunteers and parents experienced in the outdoors. If you are interested in leading a trip with Boston Family Outings, please contact Amy Kelliher, our Leader Development Coordinator, for more information.
