BKB Youth:
Social, Active, Collaborative

As kids head back to school, we are providing an outlet to keep them active and engaged in these unprecedented times. Through our youth programs, climbers will engage with peers in small, socially-distant pods while reaching new heights!

Youth Programs

We’ve restarted our youth programs and we’re coordinating these programs to line up with your climbers’ schedule.

Kids Academy

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

Ages 11-15
2 Hours
After-school

 

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.

Learn More

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.

Adventure Days

Ages 5-14
Full Day
Mon-Fri 9AM-3:30PM
By appointment

 

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. 

BKBeasts Overview

 

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.
