Youth intro class
An introduction to climbing in the adult area for new climbers.
A weekly club for children who enjoy exploration, progression, and mental and physical challenges in a fun and supportive group environment.
An inclusive team for young climbers who love bouldering and are motivated to increase their skills.
5 days of bouldering exploration in a fun, small-group environment. Options for new and experienced climbers. Held weekly Jun-Aug.
No, you are welcome to climb independently as long as children under 13 have appropriate adult supervision.
We highly recommend that all new climbers take our Youth Intro Class. Without guidance, it's easy for children to assume the point of bouldering is simply to get to the top. Our classes encourage them to engage at a deeper level, focusing on problem-solving, body awareness and control, and technical climbing skills.
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.
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.
