Youth programs

Our mission is to grow not only better climbers, but happy, healthy community members. We use bouldering to help kids become determined problem-solvers, who embrace failure as a learning opportunity, and have the confidence to try hard things.

Ninja Club

Ages 6-12

A weekly club for children who enjoy exploration, progression, and mental and physical challenges in a fun and supportive group environment.


Ages 9-18

An inclusive team for young climbers who love bouldering and are motivated to increase their skills.


Ages 6-14

5 days of bouldering exploration in a fun, small-group environment. Options for new and experienced climbers. Held weekly Jun-Aug.


Does my child need to be enrolled in a class to climb at the gym?

No, you are welcome to climb independently as long as children under 13 have appropriate adult supervision.

Your classes are always full, how do I get my child into a class?

Fall is the easiest time to secure a spot without having to join a waiting list, and fall enrollment begins in August. Places open up regularly throughout the year, so if you aren't able to secure one in the fall, make sure you join the waiting list and we'll let you know as soon as we have a spot available.

How long should my child take classes?

Our youth programs are intended to be taken in an open-ended way, much like studying a musical instrument. For Ninja Club, we recommend a minimum of 3 months, but most kids who go on to participate in higher level programs like Climbing Team participate for multiple years.

I want to be notified when registration opens, how do I do that?

Please email and request to be added to our list.
