Rock Climbing Programs for Scouts
Earth Treks is proud to offer climbing programs for Girl and Boy Scouts of all ages. We feel strongly that the inherent life lessons learned through climbing are well aligned with the missions of both the Girl Scouts of the USA and the Boy Scouts of America. Troops can choose from either a two session indoor program or a one-day outdoor course. Both the indoor and outdoor curriculum cover all BSA requirements for the Boy Scout Climbing Merit Badge (except first aid components). The same indoor or outdoor format is also well suited to the climbing components of the Girl Scout Adventure Sports and High Adventure Badge and other Girl Scout programs.
Troops with younger kids or a mix of ages, or troops that are more interested in a non-instructional fun climbing experience should consider a Private Climbing Party. To learn about the exclusive climbing parties organized by Earth Treks please click here
