Spend your Early Release Day with the Colorado Mountain Club’s Youth Education Program (YEP)!

October 23: We will spend the afternoon rock climbing and exploring the Tunnel 1 area of Clear Creek Canyon. We will introduce some of the fundamental skills and concepts of outdoor rock climbing, such as knot-tying and belaying. This should be a fun-filled outing and a great opportunity to learn about a local climbing area.

1pm – 5pm for 3rd-6th graders. YEP staff will pick up students from Fairmount Elementary at 1:05pm and parents can arrange to pick their children up at the American Mountaineering Center at 5:00pm. All necessary gear will be provided.

Cost: $35/session and includes snack, necessary gear, and instruction.
Minimum 10 students, Maximum 13 students. 


This program is part one of a series of Early Release Days with Fairmount Elementary students in 3rd-6th grade.  Future programs may include activities that focus on wilderness skills, nature awareness and observation, survival skills, and fun in the snow!
