Tree Climbing Class: Level 1 & Level 2

We believe trees offer valuable opportunities for recreation, fitness, meditation or work. For these reasons, we believe tree climbing should be as ubiquitous as riding a bike. Our mission is to help our community learn to safely climb & appreciate these beautiful structures!

About the event

This class is perfect for someone who is new to climbing trees & folks who've either attended our previous climbing classes OR have been climbing on their own for a bit. 

- Folks with previous experience will have a unique set of instructors & tree climbing challenges to test/grow their skills. 

- Those who are new to the sport will follow the below: 

Class Structure:

- You'll be safely in a tree hanging from a life-support harness within the first 30min of the first class!

- We start low to the ground & progress to greater heights once each participant feels comfortable doing so.

- If you do not feel comfortable leaving the ground, we understand(!) & you will still learn valuable skills.

- If you want to climb to the top of the tallest tree at our training facility, we will help you! 

What to Bring & Wear:

- Water & Snacks that you may need for the duration of the class

- Closed toe shoes (ideally a hiking-type shoe that covers your ankle) 

- Clothing that can move with you (fitness, yoga, hiking, workout, etc.)

Age & Ability Range:

- Classes are designed for ages 15 and up

- Folks younger than 15 can attend the class with an adult that will help the child follow along in the class (not a "drop off" class for kiddos)

- Tree climbing tends to work different muscles than other activities (good thing!)

- You'll likely have success in the class if you're able to get up from a seated position on the floor with 1 hand or less & can walk up a small flight of stairs with little to moderate fatigue
