“My son participated in the summer camp program and loved it. Everyday he climbed higher and everyday he had more stories about the fun he had. Thanks to Zoe for putting on an amazing camp and hope to be back next year!”

Dynostars Pre-School

We are super excited to be bringing a pre-school type movement class: Dynostars!

This pre-school type movement class is inspired as an alternative to the traditional pre-school options, where we can still cover the basics of what is important to learn at those ages – but inspired by movement, to inspire movement.

Each class will have climbing & play time, as well as studio time where movement is done through storytelling, the alphabet, animals, music, dancing, sing-a-longs, stretching, and breathing (just to name a few).

After School Programming

Our youth programs offer climbing, activities and games from the ages of 3-5, and grades 1 to 7+ .  Designed for both beginner and more advanced climbers, our programs cover a variety of topics such as: exploring the surroundings of a climbing gym, discovering movement on roped and bouldering walls, and climbing etiquette and technique.  We have a class for the littlest climbers –Dynostars, school-aged kids–Base Camp, High Altitude, and Summit,  so that we can offer youth the opportunity to learn, grow, and progress in climbing, becoming more confident and/or capable of moving towards higher ground!  Programs are designed to accommodate new and returning (seasoned) youth. 

Grow your child’s confidence and climbing ability while they play, laugh and become fast friends in this eight-week, after-school climbing adventure. This club is brimming with fun-filled activities tailored specifically to improve self-esteem, social skills and kinesthetic development while also introducing safety skills. No experience necessary!
