Recreational Club is for kids ages 8-16 years old who have some previous climbing experience and would like to integrate further in the climbing community/culture without the rigors of preparing for competitive climbing.
Our Recreational Club program provides a more profound orientation to climbing as a sport. During the class children will have the opportunity to experience climbing drills, learn outdoor etiquette, and how to integrate into the climbing community as they grow. Our goal is to share our love for climbing, in the hopes that it becomes as integral to the children’s lives as it is to ours. This class is super fun and includes activities like watching climbing movies, learning from routesetters about climb creation, and advanced knot tying.
Recreational Club sessions meet:
- Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM
- Saturdays from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM.
