Climbing Wall Rental
Great for Scouting groups, birthday parties, families, general exercise and those wanting to work on their rock-climbing technique, our 35-foot wall is located inside the SRWC with 11 top ropes and one auto belay system. The wall contains a variety of routes, from easy to difficult, and is great for people of all experience levels. Groups can rent our climbing wall and we will cater the program to your climbing goals. Wall rentals include staff who will cover the basics of climbing and are there to encourage participants as they belay.
We require a 2 hour minimum rental period and a minimum of 10 participants for all climbing options.
Custom Canoeing, Kayaking or Stand-Up Paddleboarding
Enjoy some time outdoors paddling down the Cuyahoga River or on one of our local lakes. We have a fleet of canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards ready for your group to use. If you are new to paddling, we can provide paddling instruction or we can just enjoy a leisurely paddle with your group. All paddling destinations are great for beginners and families. All paddling options include equipment, trained staff, paddle instructions (as requested) and assistance with return shuttle.
Bring your group to shoot archery at our indoor archery range. We will teach you basic archery technique, safety and range rules. From there, you’ll shoot at our targets and play fun archery games.

Trips can range from a few hours to multiple days/nights.
