Rock climbing has been shown to have a huge array of physical and mental benefits to it that supports their growth, and the best part about it is that it’s super fun!

All of this is done while the participants have huge smiles on their faces. Island Rock has hosted every type of school from elementary, middle, and high schools, colleges, and home schooled children. Schools have had us do the safety work (holding the ropes) for the guests so the students can just enjoy climbing. Some have had us teach their students how to belay and do the safety work (for guests 15 years old or older). Island Rock even has college classes from local universities that are held here on a weekly basis. Whatever the needs of the school are, we would love the opportunity to accommodate them.
