Scouts Canada Rock Climbing and Rappelling Program

A Special Program for Scout Canada

This program was inspired by Ron Currell who as a volunteer taught scouts climbing, rappelling and ascending for decades, and then retired in late 2013.

This one-day program offers both climbing and rappelling activities to scouts and scout leaders at a special rate plus further reduced rate to those with financial challenges.

Zen Climb and Scout Canada reached a reciprocal indemnification agreement on February 7, 2014. This means that members of Scout Canada can participate in Zen Climb's climbing courses without needing to sign waivers.  Instead, they will sign informed consent forms only.

"Thanks for setting up a great outing on Saturday, April 16, 2016. All the Scouts, Cubs and Leaders had a terrific time. Boris and his team (Kaylan and Scott) were very professional and patient. I and the other Leaders felt we were in good hands. Boris in particular  was able to make the instructions seem very easy to grasp. I would say he is very good not only at rock climbing but in his position as Lead Instructor.  All in all, a very worthwhile adventure. We look forward to booking with you again next year."  Lee Merrick, 31st Capilano Scouts, North Vancouver, BC
