Welcome to the ACA's Canyoneering Meetup Group

An open venue for you to meet other canyoneers to share ideas and information, find mentors to help you practice and hone your skills, and of course to have fun exploring canyons. The ACA has always been a big tent. We welcome and encourage participation from all canyoneers regardless of where or how you received your training. We believe it is good for the sport for people to get together to share what they have learned with others.

Since 1999, the American Canyoneering Academy (formerly the American Canyoneering Association) has been the premier source for training, technical information and services for recreational canyoneers, canyon leaders, guides and rescue professionals in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia and around the globe.

The ACA is the only organization in the Americas to offer internationally recognized certifications for canyon leaders, professional canyon guides, and canyon rescue technicians.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
