Price is per session. All clinics are three days. Register/pay for climbing clinics at the ARC adventure center during climbing wall operating hours at least 4 days in advance.

We’ll teach your kid how to climb!

Does your child have a lot of energy? Have they always tried to climb everything in sight? Bring them in for some climbing fun!

Instruction is given on safety, the climbing equipment used, basic climbing techniques, and climbing commands. Following this brief orientation, it is time to get on the wall and climb. A number of different routes may be climbed as the kids try to make it to the top. Additional activities like basic knot tying or bouldering (climbing low to the ground from side to side) may also take place if time permits.

The recommended age for this clinic is 5 years and older. Parents are required to stay for supervision.
