Rock Climbing for Kids

Get your kids climbing to new heights.

Kids are born to climb. Our kids climbing programs guide young climbers to the next level in their climbing development, whether they are climbing for fun or pursuing rock climbing as their sport.

Through climbing, youth climbers develop more than just their ability to defy gravity: they cultivate confidence, courage, problem solving, physical and mental strength, and positive relationships with their peers. Best of all, our expert climbing instructors help kids develop these important character traits and skills while having an absolute blast!

We offer rock climbing for kids of all ability and interest levels. Our kids rock climbing programs include:

  • Recreational Classes: Fun, movement-based classes led by expert instructors who use a student-centered curriculum to help kids of all ability levels climb to new heights.
  • Parties & Groups: Whether you’re celebrating your child’s birthday or looking for a fantastic outing for your school or other organization, host a memorable event at First Ascent!
  • Camps: Kids will love spending their school break climbing, rappelling, slacklining, crate stacking, zip lining, fun games, arts and crafts, and more!
  • Climbing Team: Our state-of-the-art, highly-awarded climbing team prepares youth looking to take their climbing to the next level for the USA Climbing Youth Competition series.
