The RCH Alpine Club does not have a family membership category but other types of membership may be offered by the Committee in exceptional circumstances.

After this, the applicant is admitted as a full member of the RCH Alpine Club. Ongoing membership continues indefinitely providing the applicant continues to pay his/her subscription, even if the applicant/their spouse or partner/their parent is no longer an employee of RCH or MCRI.

The joining fee is $660 for adults (payable over 2 years) and $165 for children.
The current (2020) annual subscription is $320 (early bird discount $260) for adult members and $160 (early bird discount $130) for junior members .
