Karl Nagy Memorial Scholarship

Developing Skills in the Next Generation of Guides and Club Leaders

For aspirant guides and volunteer leaders, finding opportunities to hone their guiding skills in a controlled and mentoring environment can be a big challenge. The ACC’s General Mountaineering Camp is the ideal location for leaders to build skills and the Karl Nagy Memorial Scholarship can help it happen.

This scholarship was established in 2001 to assist aspirant guides and volunteer leaders in the development of their skills. Until his death in 2000, Karl set an outstanding example as a mentor in the mountains and was well known for his leadership, safety and success. Karl was admired and loved for his exuberant attitude in the mountain environment that he played and worked in.

The recipient will be scheduled as an amateur leader for one week of the GMC and gain invaluable experience guiding and leading under the supervision of the Camp staff. There is no monetary value to the award.

ACC volunteer leaders and ACMG aspirant guides will be given priority for the award in alternating years.
