    Join us for our Youth Rock Climbing Expedition. This expedition is for individuals ages 10-14. Under the guidance of our experienced instructors, participants will learn the fundamentals of rock climbing–movement, technique, how to support each other, and practice rock site awareness and safety. 

    While learning to climb, students will be immersed in a backcountry camping and backpacking experience. Camp under a sky full of stars for three nights, learn how to cook in the backcountry, swim in an alpine lake and explore the Ansel Adams Wilderness. 

    At Summit Adventure, we use experiential education, adventure programming, service, and cross-cultural immersion as tools to move individuals and groups out of their comfort zones into more reliance on God and each other.

    Since 1973, Summit Adventure has been leading the way as the premier outdoor ministry program.
