Youth Instruction & Camps

The Youth Adventure Climbing (YAC) Team gets kids involved in a unique sport that provides health benefits and friendships for a lifetime.

Each week at practice, kids on the YAC Team have the opportunity to develop their personal climbing skills. The focus of the YAC Team goes beyond climbing, however. Our weekly practices not only teach climbing technique, but also instill lifelong skills of problem-solving, discipline and teamwork. Our coaches keep the individual goals of their athletes in mind and work to challenge each climber to push their limits yet to have fun while doing it. Whether you’re interested in becoming a top-notch climber or interested in simply having fun and making new friends, the YAC Team would be a great fit for you!
