After coming along on two hikes with the New York Ramblers, you need to send in an application for membership.

It’s easy. You can either mail the application and a check, or email a scan or photo of your application and pay with Zelle. Details are on the application form.


  • new member: $7 for first year (includes $1 application fee)
  • renewing member / additional years: $6 per year


  • new member-couple: $8 for first year (includes $1 application fee)
  • renewing member-couple / additional years: $7 per year

Download Application >>

Applications are reviewed and approved at the next semi-annual council meeting. After you have submitted the application and are waiting for approval, just keep coming by contacting hike leader in advance.

Dues help the club pay for printing and mailing of the schedule and for rental of space for the annual meetings. Thank you for your support!

Members can see how long their membership is paid by checking the date indicated on mailing label of the new schedules that are sent out twice a year.
