Youth Program

After School - Explorers - Ropes and Rocks

Join us for the inaugural Seattle Mountaineers After-school Program. We’ll spend our time together climbing, rappelling, and developing our skills!

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

Are you ready to climb? Ready to learn outdoor skills, brush up on your climbing know-how, and spend time with a small group of young mountaineers after school...are you ready to ROCK? Then this After-school Program is for you! 

Youth aged 8-10 are invited to join The Mountaineers for a three week program packed with climbing, games and songs, and a heavy dose of outdoor adventure. For three consecutive Wednesdays, participants will join us at The Mountaineers Program Center in Magnuson Park to develop climbing skills and socialize with other adventurous kiddos while taking a much needed break from screens! 

During the Ropes and Rock After-school Program, youth will have the opportunity to try a variety of climbing techniques including bouldering, belaying, and rappelling. Activities will be conducted outside as much as possible. Groups will consist of seven youth, one instructor, and will adhere to all Washington State and Mountaineers covid-19 protocols and procedures.
