Meet at the Program Center. We will be belaying youth from 10-2 PM. Please let us know if you'd like to volunteer for the whole program, or from 10-12, or from 12-2 PM. Volunteers are also needed for set up at 9 AM. 

What is it?

Rock Climbing with Children’s Hospital Limb Deficiency group.  The kids will be ages 4 – 12, and will display Limb deficiency, Arthrogryposis, variety of leg, arm, and hand amputation.  We’ll be expecting between 30-40 children at this event

What will you be doing?

Volunteers will be the ones working directly with the kids.  Assisting with putting on Harnesses and Gear, belaying, and assisting the children to climb on the wall. 

What else to expect

Limb Deficiency group is a social group for the Children that have limb loss and limb deficiency.  This event is in its third year and is always a big hit with the families.  For most of the children, it will be their first experience climbing.  For some of the children, it will be their first experience in participating in this level of outdoor activity after recovering from amputation or therapy, and for most, it will be their only chance to rock climb for the year.  The children won’t need much adaptation, they may need your assistance and guidance how to best use their residual, or stronger limbs, and mostly will need your encouragement.
