After School Climbing Program

after s. climbing winter 003TEENS, Inc. offers Fall, Winter and Spring after school climbing programs in four week blocks during the school year. Two days a week teens participate in indoor and outdoor, roped climbing and bouldering. Teens overcome mental and physical challenges learning how to use each other for support. The program focus is on personal goals, perseverance and healthy risk taking. Students are encouraged to find ways to apply these skills to their lives. As students move through the ranks and participate in multiple programs they begin to expand their technical skills and lead newer members of the climbing program.
