There are some experiences and lessons that simply can’t be gained in the classroom or workplace. Rock climbing can be a great teaching tool for personal growth, as well as a fun activity to foster positive self-confidence, trust, teamwork, expanding comfort zones, practicing challenge by choice, and general physical health.

Our group rock climbing tours are perfect for family reunions, school trips, climbing clubs, corporate retreats, team bonding, youth camps, sports teams, and more! Great for beginners and advanced climbers alike, our group trips are aimed at ensuring every member of your group has a positive experience.

Youth Climbing for Scouts, Schools, & Sports Teams

Looking for the best team bonding activity for your sports team, scout troop, or youth group? Outdoor rock climbing provides the perfect opportunity for promoting teamwork, bonding, confidence-building, and personal growth.

Our guides have worked with BSA and GSA troops from all over the northwest since 1999. We can give the opportunity to learn, practice and test the skills necessary to fulfill the criteria of the Climbing Merit Badge.

We've seen firsthand how the challenge and thrill of group rock climbing can strengthen relationships and boost team spirit for youth groups of all kinds. For those that have mastered the basic skills, we can offer more advanced climbing skills curriculum, guided trips, and challenging climbing routes.

We can tailor your climbing day to your group and facilitate activities that support your companies’ goals and needs.
