Eastern Sierra Senders

The Eastern Sierra Senders is the follow-up to the Scramblers program.  We create motivation to learn through use of “Milestones booklets” in which they check off climbing related skills as they learn and demonstrate new abilities. They are rewarded with buttons to show that they have reached next levels of achievement. Being in groups with their peers makes the learning and climbing more fun and engaging. We set up slack lines, rope swings, high lines, and more to get kids to trust climbing safety systems and maximize the fun factor of the week. We mix up the venues based on the weather conditions, but we climb in different areas to expose budding climbers to different rock types, mountain ambience, and climbing related diversions.

We provide all the equipment your child will need to have a safe, enjoyable. and unforgettable climbing  experience, including ropes, hardware, harnesses, helmets, climbing shoes, and belay devices. Each kid gets a chalk bag with chalk to use and keep, a cool SMG hat, and a certificate of participation. We encourage parents to come and help coach and belay!

 

Prerequisites:

• Age 9-12 years old.

• Ability to walk on uneven ground and the interest to learn about climbing.

• Full payment due with registration to secure space.
