We created this unique rockaneering adventure especially for active families who want a fun introduction to roped-rock climbing and rappelling. These skills are easy for people of any age to embrace, providing one starts out on very easy terrain and increases the challenges only when everyone has had the same level of success.
Having been with hundreds of families on our Family Rockaneering Trips, we have learned a lot about what makes a successful family adventure. We see value in offering a casual approach that will build confidence in beginning climbers and their parents who are hoping to instill a future of family adventures involving ropes, cliffs and canyons.
Your guide will set the pace and tone of the trip so that the parents can relinquish some of their responsibilities and enjoy the activity. Then, your guide will give the kids some of the responsibility for team safety and hold them accountable for the safety of themselves and the other members. All of the participants are charged with reaching a common goal, and have equal say in how the goal is reached.
An amazing thing often happens at this point – kids step up to the challenge and become very pro-active about being safe and supportive of the family or group. They listen to the instructions and follow the rules and push themselves to go for new experiences.
Our job is to ensure that everyone has a fun, no-pressure experience.
Your job is to have a fantastic Family Rockaneering Adventure!
