Crested Butte Climbing Club

Join Irwin Guides and other youth from the Gunnison Valley every Wednesday at climbing camp! 

Let your kids challenge themselves in a fun, supportive environment while building relationships with their peers. This 9 week camp will offer ample opportunity to build a foundation of skills or take their climbing to the next level. Each day will be full of hands-on experience and personalized instruction. This team based camp is designed for local kids of CB to build rock skills, relationships, team skills, and explore their backyards. All abilities and skill levels are welcome.

Club Fees & Attendance

We understand that many families plan vacations during the summer time and making every session may not be possible. With this in mind the 9-week Crested Butte Climbing Club is for all 9 sessions or $ / planned session. 
However, because the program is progressive in nature, we highly discourage missing too many sessions. 

In order to meet the demands of planning a well-organized summer and to ensure we are able to pay our AMGA certified instructors; all program fees are due at the time of registration and by no later than June 1. This is not a drop-in program and we are not able to issue credits for any days missed. 

Much like climbing itself, a level of commitment will ensure athlete safety and the most fun.
