OUTDOOR TEEN ROCK
For those of you that have spent time on the rock wall learning the basics, it’s time to take it to the next level. Participants will continue expanding and transferring what they have learned indoors to finding routes, belaying their fellow classmates and climbing outdoors! We will start the day off with some team-building activities, leadership briefing, expectations and then head out to Spring Mountain for a day of climbing! We will finish the day with some reflection time over a campfire and deli-cious food. After a good night’s sleep, we will wake up ready for a morning full of climbing before heading home!
*Each student must complete a medical form/waiver that will be available at the Welcome Center starting Monday, 4/3 and will need to be submitted by the briefing meeting, Monday, 7/17 from 5:30-6:30 PM in the YMCA Board Room.
