Tree Climbing Facilitators Course

June 7, 2015 @ 8:00 am - June 11, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

$900

We want you as a tree climbing facilitator at Riveredge! The interest we’ve received in our recreational tree climbing program (started in 2014) has quickly exceeded our capacity.  We are looking for a crew of additional tree climbing facilitators.  Training fees will be covered in exchange for leading an amount of tree climbing programs for Riveredge. After that barter, you’ll be paid for any programs you lead!

Save the date for our tree climbing training week in June if you’re interested in learning more yourself -or- becoming a tree climbing facilitator.  Our friends from Tree Climbing Colorado and the Global Organization of Tree Climbers (GOTC) will be back in Wisconsin and leading both training opportunities:

  • Learn the basics of recreational tree climbing so you can climb trees in your own backyard: Sunday, June 7 – Monday, June 8.   Completion of this course will provide you with your Basic Tree Climbing approved training.  Cost: $495 (*free for tree climbing facilitators in training)
  • Learning those basics PLUS becoming a trained tree climbing facilitator for Riveredge: Sunday, June 7 – Thursday, June 11. Successful completion of course will provide you with your Basic Tree Climbing training plus Facilitators certification. Cost: free* (actual cost is $900 if you do not wish to barter through volunteer hours for this course)

Come, join the fun team at Riveredge and bring groups of kids, families and adults into the tree tops! We’d love to have you join us.
