Youth Programs

Our Classes and Club curriculum is designed to promote a non-competitive, fun, and engaging environment where participants will learn to belay at a young age. Climbing techniques will be introduced organically throughout the course of the programs and tailored to the growth of the individual climbers.

COVID-19 Update: Kids in our youth programs are required to wear masks at all times. We know this isn't ideal but we feel that it's the best choice for the safety of the community until vaccinations are approved for kids.

Club Whetstone is a non-competitive climbing program split into two age groups so that we can best meet your climbers’ needs.
