Youth Climbing Clubs
Open to youth ages 7–14.
Climbing club options for climbers ages 7–14.
YMCA Youth Climbing Clubs are for youth climbers of all skill levels. We have two clubs to help youth climbers learn the basics, or improve their skills. Climbing Clubs teach belay systems and basic climbing knots, and help climbers develop their technique with individualized instruction. Low enrollment caps are in place to ensure climbers spend plenty of time on the wall.
At a Glance:

Junior Climbing Club familiarizes beginning climbers with how to tie in, belay team communication, and the process of belay. Ideal for youth interested in joining YMCA Climbing Club who have not yet learned belay or basic climbing knot work, or who are just looking for a social outlet at the climbing wall.
