Granite Arch offers Beginner/Intermediate semester classes in both the fall and winter/spring for students 7 to 18 years of age. Each semester is composed of 12 weekly sessions; each session is two hours long.  The structured curriculum helps students become competent as climbers and as belayers. Our instructors also concentrate on team-building concepts throughout the program to stress the importance of social interaction and trust among the students. Equipment is provided during class time.

The Advanced class is now being offered in both the fall and winter/spring semesters as well. It is for students 10 to 18 years of age. The semester is composed of 12 weekly sessions; each session is two hours long. Please note there is no field trip for the fall semester advanced class, however there is an outdoor field trip with the winter/spring advanced class at end of the semester (additional tuition applies). Equipment is provided during class time and on field trip. Additional requirements to enroll in advanced class: Students must have completed the Beg/Intermediate class at Granite Arch or demonstrate proficiency in belaying and climbing ability to the satisfaction of the instructor. Students must be able to complete at least a 5.8 climb.
