Youth Tree Climbing Club @ Riveredge

Youth Tree Climbing Club

Our club is FULL for 2014!  Please check out our calendar of events to find an upcoming open tree climb.  We’d love to have you in the trees with us this season!

We are so excited about our brand new tree climbing programs that we’ve even decided to start a youth tree climbing club!  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 tree during each club meeting.  Learn more about tree climbing at Riveredge on our webpage. Youth age 7 years and above are welcome to join.

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 membership card, recognition on the tree climbing club “trunk of fame” which will be permanently installed at the end of the climbing season at Riveredge.

Special Inaugural Year Perks: This year, the club members will determine the official club name and design the special tree climbing t-shirts!

Meeting Dates & Times:

  • Sunday, June 8th: 11:30 – 2:00 pm (includes a chance for family members to climb and a potluck picnic for all!)
  • Sunday, July 13th: 3:00 – 5:30 pm
  • Sunday, August 10th: 3:00 – 5:30 pm

  • Sunday, October 12th: 2:00 – 5:00 pm (end of year celebration: family members may climb and another potluck picnic for all!)

Price: $100 per youth member (Must be a Riveredge member to join, not a member?  Your whole family can join for as little as $40)

Can’t make a meeting or one gets rained out?  Club members who miss a meeting can sign up for an open climb as a “make-up” for the meeting missed (maximum of 2 times per season)

To enroll, contact the club leader, Jessica Jens (also the Executive Director of Riveredge) at
