In 1953, in order to establish and expand a foundation for mountaineering,
CAC sponsored a nationwide campaign for both mountain and ocean
training workshops designed for high school students, In 1962, members
of CAC formed the Federation of Korean Alpine Federation.
KAF also served to play an important role in the initial period
of the alpine club's activities in Korea. Until the end of the 1960's,
CAC has been mainly responsible for carrying out the alpine activities
in Korea. CAC is undeniably the oldest and largest alpine club in
Korea and has been the main body for mountaineering.
Currently CAC's organization includes the main office in Seoul
and 12 branch offices located around the Korean country side. It
has 11 committees for different areas of activity.
