Scouting Events


A five-hour class in which Scouts can meet all of the requirements for the BSA Climbing Merit Badge. Badge requirements include belaying, rappelling, knot tying, rope management and other general safety requirements. We recommend that scouts be at least 12 years old and have completed the First Aid Merit Badge. This class is open to both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, however the requirements met are only that of the BSA Climbing Merit Badge.

If you would like to register a group of six or more for this event please contact the facility you plan on visiting. If the following dates do not work, schedule your troops very own Climbing Merit Badge Day.

Ask about taking this class outdoors on real rock!

Note: During this program, children (under the age of the 14) may belay for each other at the instructor’s discretion. Youth may also be required to use a backup belayer at the instructor’s discretion.
