Adult Leader Training - Climbing

Climbing offers several trainings and recreational opportunities for adult leaders during the week. For a summary of all trainings, including course fees, see the chart below.

Climb On Safely
Climb On Safely is the Boy Scouts of America’s safety standard for organizing BSA climbing/rappelling activities. Any adults interested in learning about these policies and procedures are invited to attend the training. The session is entirely classroom-based and will be held at the Climbing Tower on Monday morning at 9:00am.

Climbing Instructor (Level I)
This course trains adult leaders to help supervise climbing and rappelling activities. Previous climbing experience is helpful. Participants are required to spend most of the week around the climbing tower and assisting with other activities such as the Wednesday Climbing merit badge field trip and the Thursday evening Open Climbing twilight activity.

Participants who complete the program will qualify as a Level I Climbing Instructor. This qualification enables the holder to assist as the required second instructor during an event (they may only supervise under the guidance of a Level II Climbing Instructor or National Camping School Climbing Director).
