Alaska Mountain Guides has worked with Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts from around the world since 1992. We pride ourselves in providing the highest quality technical training, logistical coordination, and leadership in our scout programs. Alaska Mountain Guides has the expertise to take your scout troop to the next level of adventure and technical training!

Why Scouts Choose AMG?

When it comes to remote wilderness areas that require significant technical expertise or cumbersome logistics, many Scout troops find it best to entrust the safety of their scouts to proven professionals. Whether ice climbing in the wilds of Alaska, climbing above 19,000 feet to the roof of Africa, or exploring remote canyons of the desert southwest; Alaska Mountain Guides has the experience to arrange a custom adventure that meets the needs and goals of your Scout troop.

Here are a few snapshots from AMG’s history of working with Scouts:

“We were up early again this morning to say a sad farewell to our mountain guides in Haines. They’ve done a magnificent job – one of the most professional and thoughtful outfits we’ve used – and they’ve really pulled out all the stops to make sure the scouts have a cool time.”

“I am the adult supervisor and leader of crew 71, Venturer Scouts. We are very fortunate to have Alaska Mountain guides based in our Alaskan town. Their professional guides and well planed excursions have made it possible for our kids to enjoy safe and quality adventures that most people only dream of. Recently our scouts and parents spent a year fund raising and planning for a trip to Africa with AMG. All 11 scouts and 7 adult successfully made it to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. This is far above the average success ratio on this mountain. We have also completed ocean kayaking and rock and ice climbing instruction with these good folks. If you are a parent or leader of a youth group, feel free to contact me for recommendations and questions about this organization. As a leader it’s SAFTY first, and that is Alaska Mountain Guides.”

You and your staff’s attitude, service, and willingness to assist our Scouts with an affordable and memorable experience are the “HIGHLIGHTS” of Alaska Mountain Guides & Climbing School lnc.”
