To join the Cape Town Section of the MCSA, complete the online form below.
Before proceeding with your application, please read the frequently asked questions, the responsibilities of members, and note that the application process requires you to accept the terms and conditions of membership.
Be sure to include an original, clear, head and shoulders photo. This photo will be used on your membership card, and so must be recognisable.
Once you have completed the form, please pay the entrance fee (banking details and fees are here). You will be invoiced for subscription fees after your election is confirmed.
Note: Cape Town Section entrance fees (R175 if you are over 24 years of age, and R50 if you are between 17 and 24 years of age) are due within one month from the date of your application, or it will be discarded and you will have to re-apply.
Members who are applying for Joint Membership must each complete an application form, and each pay the entrance fee. (This does not apply where one partner is already an elected member of the Club).
(Should you wish to join another geographically-based section of the MCSA, please visit that section’s site for information, by using the menu in the top right-hand corner of this website.)
Once elected as a member, should I wish to resign or change my membership status I will notify the Club in writing by 31 December of the current year, and I understand that the change will take effect only from 1 January the following year.
I will be bound by The Constitution of the MCSA (Cape Town Section) and any rules as set by its General Committee while I remain a member, and I will familiarise myself with and abide by the Club’s Code of Conduct.
I indemnify and absolve The Mountain Club of South Africa, the Sections of the Club and any individually-officiating Club members from any liability of any nature whatsoever and howsoever caused to me which may arise from injury, illness, damage, loss, mishap, accident, or any other occurrence, resulting from my participation in any meet, expedition, event, activity or service held under the auspices of the Club or sanctioned by the Club. I acknowledge that I am aware of the risks to which I might be exposed as a result of such participation, and I voluntarily accept all such risks.
