Young Members (20s/30s)

young members

AMC’s Berkshire Chapter of Western Mass invites people in their 20s & 30s as well as the young-at-heart to attend our Young Members (20s & 30s) activities.

We offer hikes throughout Western Mass, and usually follow these with an option to stop at a nearby restaurant, bar, brewery, winery, creamery, marketplace for picnic food, swimming hole, or community event.

If you’d like to receive emails about our activities (just sent a few times throughout the year), please contact: YoungMembers@AMCBerkshire.org

To see a list of our upcoming trips, click here.

Have you ever thought about becoming an AMC leader so you can share your favorite outdoor places with others? We’d love to have you join our team! In addition to hikes, we would like to offer other outdoor activities in the future such as cross-country skiing, bicycling, paddling, mountaineering, volunteer activities, and others. Let us know what you’re interested in leading and we can help you make it happen! Just send an email to the above address, and thanks.

The Women of Paddling

The Women of Paddling

By: Leah Brodsky, Social Media Editor

The Berkshire chapter is blessed to have many strong female leaders within its volunteer ranks. This year, two of our officers are women (our vice chair and our treasurer), and women lead our Bicycling, Outings, and Paddling committees. In fact, the chapter’s paddling operation has recently been revitalized thanks to the enthusiastic leadership of three amazing women: Mary Therese Durr, Bonna Wieler, and Dee Dice.
