Social, Active, Collaborative
We’ve restarted our youth programs and we’re coordinating these programs to line up with your climbers’ schedule.
After-school + Weekends
At Kids Academy we will focus on socializing while social distancing, and getting on the walls. Kids Academy can be booked for a single day or on a recurring basis. 1:5 instructor to climber ratio.
Participants will climb throughout the facility, experiencing plenty of top-roping and bouldering, alongside our BKB Instructors. Climbers will have the opportunity to reach new heights and engage with peers in a fun, socially-distanced environment!
Teen Academy provides a place for teens and tweens to experience climbing and our BKB Community. Teens will solve problems individually and as socially distant pods.
Climbers will get consistent, educational instruction from BKB Team Members, have the opportunity to influence day-to-day group activities like climbing drills and technique lessons, and challenge themselves in a social, non-competitive atmosphere.
This program increases body awareness, climbing techniques, and terminology. It also helps teens improve their coordination and ability to sequence routes and problems.
Given the modifications to schooling in these unprecedented times, our emphasis is on getting your climbers up and moving, while supporting virtual learning. Adventure Day participants will engage with peers and BKB Instructors in pre-arranged socially-distant pods with 3-5 climbers.
Adventure Day pods will be created by parents upon booking. If you are unable to form a complete pod, we will assign your climber to a pod. Once assigned to a pod, this is the group your climber will participate with for all 5 of your Adventure Days as available.
BKBeast Youth Teams provide a structured atmosphere for youth to develop as climbers. All Youth Teams are run via socially distant pods of five or less with the same coach running every practice. Camaraderie is paramount in our teams as climbing is a sport of individual performance strengthened by the surrounding community. With respect to our current times, we hope our teams will forge friendship, partnership and spirit.
Welcome, young beasts. This is our entry level team. The 101 program is all about having fun while making friends and learning the foundations of climbing technique.
We use a combination of climbing games, and movement lessons as well as the slow introduction of some training elements to keep these BKBeasts excited and engaged while they grow as climbers. This program provides everything needed to get on the path to joining the competitive teams or a lifetime of recreational climbing.
Practice is 1 day per week with a 1:5 coach to climber ratio.
