Indoor Rock Climbing (Ages 5-15)

Join the Outdoor Adventure Program as we host a Youth Climbing Class. We will talk about climbing wall safety, equipment use, how and when climbing is appropriate, the difference between indoor and outdoor climbing and more. The first couple sessions will be spent learning and practicing skills, as well as using the bouldering wall to teach moves. The course is structured to include interactive instruction, practice time and belaying time. We encourage parents/guardians to come to the last class and see the progress that has been made. For those with climbing experience, this is a great chance to spend more time on the wall and developing your skills!

Class size is limited.
