Last year was such a success we are doing it again! Penitente Canyon here we come. Whether you've been climbing for years or are completely new to the sport, this 4-day course will provide you with new skills and challenging experiences.
This overnight is designed for 14-17 year-olds. Course meets from July 29 - August 1, 2013. We will begin at 8:00 a.m. at the American Mountaineering Center on July 29th. Day one will include time for equipment checks, packing and driving to our campsite in Southwest Colorado to Penitente Canyon. On day four we will break down camp and return to the AMC by 4:00 p.m. on August 1st.
We will climb, learn about the ecosystem, play games and make new friends. Our evenings will be spent around camp where participants will play games, assist with chores, and share stories.
Course instruction will encourage teambuilding, decision-making, and leadership in a small co-ed group environment. We suggest participants come prepared to be flexible and understand the importance of working together. We will spend time visiting natural geologic formations, cooking in groups, and sharing tents. In addition to climbing and camping, we will also practice journaling so we can learn about ourselves and recognize how we can benefit from community support.
Cost includes instruction by AMGA certified single pitch instructor and trained outdoor educators, equipment use, transportation to and from sites, a field journal, and food for 3 nights and 4 days.
Confirmation packets with a detailed itinerary, recommended packing list, health form, and liability release forms will be mailed in May.
