Get ready for an epic rock climbing adventure! Join us for a day of outdoor rock climbing to complete some of the requirements for the Climbing Adventure badge. Girls will learn about climbing equipment, techniques, knots, and other skills before exploring up the rock wall. No prior climbing experience required, open to all Brownies – Ambassadors. For badge requirements, check out Volunteer Toolkit or the Badge Explorer.

This is not a drop off event, all Girl Scouts must attend with a parent, guardian, or troop leader. Girl to adult ratios for events should be met. No tagalongs. All child and adult attendees agree to follow the most current GSCO COVID -19 guidelines in relation to in-person events and have completed a COVID-19 waiver. All participants must have a current Girl Scout membership.

*Important Notes:

 

  1. The approach to the climbing site at Gregory Canyon is approximately a 20-minute, 0.4 mile, 500 ft. elevation gain hike. It is a very steep hike from the parking lot to the climb site. Please wear appropriate attire to hike to the climbing site and prepare for all weather conditions.
  2. Parking at Gregory Canyon and Chautauqua Park can be difficult to find and does require a small fee. Gregory Canyon requires a $5 fee for non-Boulder county residents. Parking at Chautauqua Park on summer weekends is $2.50 per hour. More information about parking can be found in the event letter. 

Financial assistance is available to everyone. Easily apply during registration process, to receive aid toward the event registration fee.
