Get Fit, Have Fun, & Make New Friends!
The Youth Program at Pacific Edge, available to students between the ages of 11 and 17, offers you an exciting and challenging way to exercise your body and your brain. Rock climbing demands responsibility, self-confidence, and initiative, and is an excellent way to develop these qualities.
Pacific Edge membership is included for the duration of each class/training session; students are encouraged to climb outside of class times, putting what they have learned into practice. Physical Education or elective credit may be available for some students. Check with your school to see what is allowed.
Financial Aid - Some financial aid is available to qualified climbers. Please talk to Tom, Diane, Scott, or Mike for details.
