Rock Climbing

The NSCD climbing program has something for everyone at every ability level. Our staff provides a peak therapeutic experience while passing along the skills instrumental to being a successful climber. Staff performs an on-site assessment that complements the participant information provided prior to arrival and designs a custom curriculum in one of our three learning tracks. You can climb year-round with the NSCD and no experience is necessary. We climb outside in the spring, summer and fall, then move indoors for winter classes. Sign up for the NSCD Climbing Club or design your own custom experience. Friends and family are welcome. All equipment and adaptations are provided. Participants must be independent and manage self-care or bring a care-giver to provide assistance.
