Outdoor Skills Clinics

We offer unique instructional clinics each semester that are designed to teach participants a useful outdoor skill. Types of clinics we have offered in the past have included campfire cooking, knots 101, rock climbing technique, observing the night sky, outdoor photography, packing a backpack, and more.

Introduction to Climbing and Belaying Clinic

This two-and-a-half hour program covers the basics of indoor climbing including equipment, bouldering, top rope climbing, and belaying with an ATC and Gri-gri device. This program sets up an individual with no prior experience to take our belay test which is required when purchasing a climbing wall membership.
