After-School Programs

After-School Programs

Youth are invited to join The Mountaineers for in-person after-school programs this fall! Happening in Tacoma, Olympia, and Seattle, these programs will offer students an opportunity to get together, in small groups, with other adventurers to socialize and build outdoor skills. Sign up now for some screen-free fun!

All after-school programs will be conducted in compliance with Washington state and The Mountaineers COVID-19 operating guidance. We are monitoring the process of reopening closely and will continue to share updates and changes as they occur. For further information, please review The Mountaineers COVID-19 Response Page.

Seattle After-school Programs

Join The Mountaineers for 3-week-long themed after-school sessions! Youth can sign up for one (or two! Or four!) sessions and join us one day per week at the Seattle Program Center in Magnuson Park. Themes range from climbing and outdoor survival skills to nature art and the Pacific Northwest ecosystem. Programs run for two hours with a small group of other adventurous kiddos of similar ages.

Tacoma After-School Programs

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. 



Olympia After-School Programs

After-School Adventure Club is a small group that meets one day a week in the afternoon at the Olympia Friends Meeting Hall. Each week we will enjoy an outdoor adventure such as hiking at Priest Point Park, exploring the nearby beach, and learning a variety of outdoor skills including navigation, outdoor cooking, Leave No Trace, and much more.
