After School Climbing Camp - Tuesdays - Tacoma - 2020

Youth Program

After School Climbing Camp

A weekly camp that meets from 3-6pm to work on rock climbing and other outdoor skills. This group will meet on Tuesdays for 10 sessions through mid-November.

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.

After-School Climbing Club is a small group that meets one day a week in the afternoon at the Tacoma Mountaineers Program Center. This group primarily will work on rock climbing on our outdoor climbing wall, but will also learn rope skills such as belaying, rappelling, prusiking, knots, and other general outdoor skills as well. 

The intent of this group is to get kids involved in in-person, outdoor activities in a safe manner during the COVID-19 pandemic, while also providing a few hours of childcare for parents during the week. Groups will consist of a maximum of 8 kids and 1-2 staff and volunteers.

All activities will be outdoors until Pierce County reaches Phase 3. If activities are able to move indoors, masks must be worn at all times.
