Scouts

On The Rocks offers a one day, three hour class for scouts of all ages to work toward earning their adventure badge through the Girl Scouts of America or the Boy Scouts of America! Our lead instructor, Nick, is a certified BSA merit badge counselor. Climbing curriculum will vary slightly depending on badge requirements, but scouts will typically go through the following:

  • Receive a gym orientation and general climbing education
  • Learn introductory and intermediate climbing techniques
  • Learn how to belay a climber and tie the most common climbing knots
  • Boy Scouts: Learn to rappel
  • Have time to practice the skills learned after classes are completed

*All instructors are certified Climbing Wall Instructors through either the CWA or the AMGA.

Cost

  • 1-8 Scouts $20/ scout (1 instructor required)
  • 9- 16 scouts $18/ scout (2 instructors required)
  • $60/ instructor

Booking times are flexible. Please reach out to Coordinator Tom at support@climbontherocks.com with any booking requests.

    If your Troop would like to have an outing at On The Rocks and do not want this type of education you might be interested in our other group and party rates.
