Climb On Safely: Scout Leader Training

For scout leaders who want more in-depth knowledge we offer our 2 hour session for the pack or troop leaders to help prepare you for a stronger leadership role in helping your youth learn to rock climb and belay. In addition to the information we cover in our badge session we will also include a belay certification and delve deeper into developing your skills as a climber. Take advantage of this course before you bring your troops in. Harness, chalk bag, and ropes included. Shoes may be rented for an additional fee or clean gym shoes may be worn. (THIS IS A CERTIFICATION)

Climbing Merit Badge for Scouts

Gemstone is excited to partner with the local Scouts to help these promising youth earn their climbing and adventure badges. During this session, the scouting youth will work as a team to learn the basics of climbing and belaying, sharpen their problem solving and communication skills and learn firsthand how to respond to climbing related emergencies. Emphasis will be placed not only on climbing but also on teamwork, communication, critical thinking and supporting each other to accomplish goals. This is hands on learning that scouts will immediately apply and practice. This is an experience that will stay with them long after they’ve earned their badge. All gear (shoes, harness, chalk bag) is included (sizing for shoes is limited – clean gym shoes may be worn instead).

Time Commitment
4 hours (2 hours in the morning, lunch break, and 2 hours in the afternoon)

Cost
$35 per participant with a minimum of 10
