Take your summer to new heights with Outdoor Rock Climbing!  This program is tailored for participants with little to no rock-climbing experience. The week is packed with five full days of indoor and outdoor rock climbing, and activities focused on building both essential climbing skills and personal confidence in this new, exciting, and (sometimes) challenging sport. In this course, you will learn about outdoor safety, climbing equipment, knot tying, belaying and rappelling, and will experience this all in a small, supportive environment facilitated by highly skilled instructors. We’ll start the week learning essential climbing skills, such as safety checks, belaying, and knot tying. After mastering these basics, the next four days will be spent honing skills at various climbing sites around the Front Range. There, you will be taught about outdoor climbing safety and etiquette, Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, practice rappelling, and learn techniques for various types of rock climbing. Spend a week challenging yourself with a new skill, making new friends, and exploring some of the beautiful parts of Colorado’s Front Range! Youth who participate in this course will gain the skills and confidence to join our YEP advanced climbing courses.

Age: For youth going into grades 9-12.

Dates: June 13-17, 2022, 5 days. 

Location: American Mountaineering Center, Golden, CO and travel to other front range locations.
