K-2 and 3-5 Climbers can take the New Paltz school bus to the Rite-Aid parking lot where they will be met by BC's staff and escorted to the gym, or climbers can be dropped off at the gym.


K-2 program (Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:45pm-5:15pm)

This program is designed for young climbers in kindergarten through 2nd grade.
While stressing climbing, the main emphasis will be experiencing the joy of climbing
through top-roped climbing, bouldering, climbing games and team building games.
Belaying and instruction will be provided by BC's staff.

Price: $100/month (includes harness and shoes)

3-5 Program (Mondays and Wednesdays 3:45pm-5:15pm)

The 3-5 program is for climbers in 3rd through 5th grades. As with the K2 program,
belaying and instruction will be provided by BC's staff. More emphasis, however, will be
directed at teaching climbers mastery of various skills such as knot-tying, belaying,
climbing movement and climbing route completion. The 3-5 program is perfect for
students who still need direct supervision but are interested in and capable of
accepting more responsibility and learning more advanced climbing skills.

Price: $100/month (includes harness and shoes)

 

After School Climbing Club (Mon./Wed./Fri. 3:00pm-5:15pm)

Climbing Club is designed for climbers who take climbing more seriously and are capable of being more self-directed. Club will be run much like the climbing team and is in many ways a precursor
to joining the climbing team. Instructors will serve more as coaches, working on
improving climber’s technique and stressing route climbing, route reading, strength
training and endurance. Club also offers climbers more access to the gym to climb on
their own. Climbers enrolled in the Club can also use the gym from opening until 6PM
on weekends. Climbers under 13 must be accompanied by a responsible party.

 


Cost - $109/month (rentals not included)

Equpiment: We recommend climbers enrolled in ASCC purchase their own harness and shoes.
(The Rock and Snow Annex is an excellent resource for used climbing shoes. Rock
and Snow is also offering a 20% discount to AS enrollees purchasing both a harness and shoes.)
If you prefer to rent a harness and shoes, a special BC's rental package is available for $60/month to ASCC students.

Climbing Team (Mons and Weds 6pm-8pm)

The BC's climbing team is for those climbers who love climbing and want to improve their
climbing skills. Climbers on the BC's Climbing Team have the opportunity when they qualify to compete at USA
Climbing sanctioned local, regional and national bouldering and sport climbing
competitions. Competition is optional. Participation on the Climbing Team is by invitation
or try-out.
Climbers on the team are encouraged to climb on their own at other times and take advantage of
the full gym membership that comes with team membership.


Price - $120/month
