What to expect

Once again, Courageous Kids Climbing – a group of rock climbers based in central Idaho – will be onsite to show children with disabilities how to rock climb. Idaho CDHD trainees and U of I climbing staff will also be on hand to help all participants having a meaningful and fun time!

When you arrive at the Recreation Center, you will:

  1. Sign in at the check-in table. You and your child(ren) will be provided with a name tag. Everyone is then introduced to your climbing instructor. All of the instructors and climbing wall staff are experienced climbers. They are prepared to answer any questions you have.
  2. Your child(ren) will be fitted with climbing equipment and assistive climbing gear (if needed). Your instructor will help your child(ren) get into a climbing harness and all appropriate assistive gear. They will also show your child(ren) how everything works and introduce them to the rock wall.
  3. Once fitted and trained, it’s time to get climbing! Your child(ren) will have a full hour to freely climb the wall. Staff, including our trainees, will be on-hand the entire time to ensure the safety of all participants. We want everyone to have a fun time!

Join us for this free, fun and inclusive event! Children of all ages and abilities are welcome, but don’t forget – registration is required!
