BMC club guidelines

Setting up and managing a climbing or walking club can throw up many questions. These guidelines for BMC clubs will help answer some of them.

The advice below is intended not to constrain club activities but to help clubs manage their affairs effectively so they can enjoy the established freedoms of the mountains and cliffs and protect them in their natural state for future generations to enjoy.

If you are looking for further advice, wish to chat through support for your club or have a query on a different topic then please contact Jane Thompson, BMC Clubs Officer on 07885 910606 or jane@ thebmc.co.uk
