The Central Alberta Mountain Club was founded on March 8, 2000 by a group of individuals wishing to share in their interests of the outdoors. The club was formed by an organizing committee which evolved into the Executive positions we have today. Alternate names considered for the club included Gaetz Lakes Hiking Club and Kerry Wood Mountain Club. By July 2000 club membership had already topped the 100 mark.
In 2002 the CAMC became involved in the Government of Alberta’s Adopt-A-Trail Volunteer Maintenance Program. A sign with the club name and logo can be found at the Kinglet Lake/Tuff Puff trailhead in David Thompson Country.
In 2005 the CAMC participated in the historic Alberta Centennial Mountain Expedition and placed a new summit canister on Mount Chester in Kananaskis.
