Youth Climbing

At RocVentures, we're excited to offer a variety of youth programs designed to cater to kids of all skill levels, needs, and abilities. Feel free to bring your kids for a drop-in climb anytime we're open with a Day Pass or Membership. Kids under 13 require parent supervision. For an even more engaging experience, explore our Youth Program options, where our dedicated staff provides guidance and coaching.

If your child is taking their first steps into the world of climbing, we highly recommend our one-hour Staff Belay. It's a fantastic way to guarantee a safe and enjoyable introduction to the thrilling adventure of climbing. We look forward to sharing the joy of climbing with your little ones!
