Welcome to the CCM

The purpose of the Connecticut Climbers & Mountaineers is to provide a framework for planning and arranging regular climbing, mountaineering, ice climbing, backcountry skiing and bouldering activities throughout Connecticut and elsewhere. Activities include weekly climbs, monthly regional trips and major excursions. The CCM does not charge any membership fees, and events are led on a committee-wide basis. The CCM is made up solely of volunteers who are a group of friends that share common interests and wish to help coordinate group activities for interested participants.

CCM - Work in Progress & Brief History

The CCM was originally founded by a handful of individuals in 2004. They became known as the Founding Fathers, their mission was to guide the newly born organization (group, club, whatever...). They did a incredible job as history shows. When CCM began to grow it was clear that a more structured form of leadership was needed. The Executive Committee was created, The committee handled organizing, decision making and provide general direction for the CCM.

Now that CCM has reached a point of maturity (or immaturity) the executive committee will be transformed. The purpose of this new entity, the Board of Monks, is simple - organize and facilitate. It will be inclusive and not exclusive. With that in mind, we would like to invite anyone wishing to help to step forward.

The responsibilities are simple:
Show up - Attendance on wed. nights is essential since that is when most decisions are made
Lend your creative thoughts
Help facilitate trips
Have much fun
