Friday Tree Climbing Club

September 15, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Luca Birthday Tree Climbing 2016-35

Are you ready for an awesome season of climbing and flying?! Riveredge Youth Tree Climbing and Flying Club is back bigger and better than ever.  We had such high demand during our 2016 season that we are expanding.  This year you can choose from three clubs, either Friday night or two options on Sunday afternoons.  This is a pretty special experience – one where the members will climb together from June – October, form a tight knit community, and have all kinds of one-of-a-kind fun outdoors while developing a new skill, improving their fitness, and building relationships with our natural world.  Discover trees all over Riveredge, pick your own special “tree name,” and play fun games in the trees during each club meeting. Absolutely, positively no prior experience needed to join the club! We’ve got lots of new fun planned for this year too including “tree boats”, i.e hammocks way up in threes. Yes, you heard that right. Hammocks in the TREES.

Club Membership Includes: 5 climbing days (parents and family members can climb too during the kick off meeting in June and the closing party in October), use of all equipment, tree climbing club t-shirt, recognition on the tree climbing club “trunk of fame” which will be permanently installed at the end of the climbing season at Riveredge (it’s actually a bench by the main tree climbing area – but we like to call it a trunk).
