Teaching more than just how to climb.  

Bringing up the next generation of climbers is one of our greatest goals at the Pad - to progress the sport forward and to protect the outdoors. All of our programs teach climbing skills, problem solving techniques, cooperation and so much more. We have classes, camps and clinics available for all ages, abilities and desires. Learn more and book today! 


After school programs run for 8 weeks and have been developed for kids who are looking for a fun activity as exercise and who would like a social platform that teaches teamwork, goal setting, and fundamentals of bouldering. If you’re looking for an after school program that focuses on the individual achievements of your child but features a supportive team atmosphere, this is it!

Rock Hoppers is a class geared toward an introduction to climbing and getting to know the sport.
Senders is an intermediate level class focused on perfecting kids’ foundation and technique! Climbers enrolled in this class will spend time learning about climbing safety, basic technique, and getting comfortable on the wall.


At the beginning of the week long camp, climbers will get a feel for climbing and participate in climbing technique drills. In addition, throughout the week, campers will test their endurance and strength, engage in team building activities, and create mementos to take home.
