Climbing Training Level 1

Event Details

Let's Help Our Scouts Reach New Heights!
Become a Level 1 Climbing Instructor!

Under the supervision of a Level 2 Climbing Instructor, Level 1 Climbing Instructors can teach Climbing Merit Badge, and instruct youth in climbing and rappelling on the council climbing towers under the BSA program.

It's a great way to learn about climbing and conducting youth group climbing events, improve your rigging and climbing skills, and serve the community by introducing youth to a challenging sport.

You must be 18 to be carded as a Level 1 Climbing Instructor, but youth 16 and over can be carded as a Level 1 Instructor in Training.  This training needs to be renewed annually.

Cost: $25 - includes meals and campsite. 

Class runs :
Friday Night 7:00 -10:00 PM
