How to Join

Join the WAC Community

Joining the WAC is easy – just follow these steps.  (Note: if you are applying for a class, you must complete steps 1,2 and 3 to apply, but you don’t need to pay for the class (step 4) until your admittance in the class is confirmed.)

  1. Fill out our Online Membership Application and click the “Sign Me Up!” button at the bottom of the page.  
  2. Then sign-in and go to My Membership–>Membership Status to complete the next two steps.
  3. Complete our Online Membership Waiver.
    Note that you must complete the email-verification step when signing the online waiver or it doesn’t count:)
  4. Pay your membership dues (you can save money by signing up for multiple years) and a $15 one-time new-member fee.

Plan to use the cabin? Instead of paying nightly member fee to stay at the Guye Cabin, you can pay the annual cabin fees which are effective Jan 1 to Dec 31.

NOTE: Cabin use is contingent upon approval of your membership application. Cabin payments received will be refunded if your application, waiver, and membership payment are not completed within 30 days.  The adults (persons over 18) under a family cabin fee must all be current WAC members and be immediate family members living together. Kids are defined as their children under 13 years of age. Any family member over the age of 13 that is not covered on the family’s annual cabin dues (i.e. not immediate family living together) must pay the guest or member fee when using the cabin.

Cabin Annual Fees (Available only for Members) 
Individual Member$150.00
Immediate Family of two adult members +kids under 13$200.00
Immediate Family of two members + older kids$250.00
