Welcome to the American Canyoneering Academy's Meetup Group 

The ACA provides many opportunities for you to learn canyoneering skills; from Level 1 Ground School to hands-on Technical and Advanced Canyoneering courses to training and certification for professional canyon guides and rescue teams.

Our group exists to serve as 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 prior 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, Canyon Rescue Technicians, and Rappel Masters.
