Cabin Construction and Maintenance

Volunteer opportunities to maintain and improve the PATC cabins often become available.

The PATC Cabins Operations Committee undertakes larger projects,
which are announced in the monthly newsletter, the Potomac Appalachian, and on the online calendar.
Occasionally, positions for PATC Cabin Maintainers and Co-Maintainers become vacant.
If you believe that you have the interest and requisite skills to serve as a maintainer,

download and complete the Potential Cabin Maintainer Form and email it to the Cabin Maintenance Chair.

Likewise, the form can be mailed to club headquarters at 118 Park Street SE, Vienna, VA 22180.

    Current Vacancies

Robert Humphrey Cabin Co-Maintainer

For more information, contact Cabin Maintenance Chair Mel Merritt or Cabin Coordinator Martha Reynolds.


Work crews assist the lead Maintainer with various cabin duties and projects.
If you are new to PATC cabins, joining a work crew is an excellent way to learn how to responsibly use a cabin,
in addition to providing a valuable service to PATC.
Maintainers visit their cabins at least four times a year, and often more, resulting in about 150 cabin work trips
annually, club-wide. Although many maintainers have recruited a volunteer team, others seek help by posting notices
and events in the Potomac Appalachian and on the online calendar.
