Youth Groups

If you have a church group, school group, or any kind of youth group; an outing at Little Rock Climbing Center can be guaranteed to be the highlight of the year. Groups of 8-30 kids can climb our walls using the auto-belay systems and the tope-rope systems. Climbers age 13 and older can learn to belay (work the ropes) for other climbers. If your group consists of children younger than 13, adults with your group will be required to assist with clipping in and out of auto-belay systems and belaying the kids on the top-rope systems. Reservations are required along with a 50% deposit.

Field Trips

Bring your class or camp out for an hour of fun climbing at LRCC.  We will provide the harness and instructions for the kids and teach your staff how to help with the auto-belays. Field trip reservations are open for ages 5 and up with a minimum of 12 in your group.  A $50 deposit is due at the time of reservation.

Practice is held from 5:00-6:30 PM on Wednesdays. It is open to climbers from ages 12-17. The cost is $250 for the entire 12 week session and includes rental gear if needed. A full gym membership can be added for an additional $100.

Team members compete at the local level and regional level with the opportunity to move on to national competitions through USA climbing.
