This fall, we're offering outdoor climbing programs at our towers in Auburn, Bothell, and Snoqualmie for kids and families.
The Y specializes in outdoor climbing tower programs, team building, and leadership development. Our staff-facilitated rock climbing programs allow participants develop their climbing skills in a respectful and supportive learning environment. All of our facilitators are CPR/First Aid certified, and trained to ACCT (Association of Challenge Course Technology) standards and specifications.
Under the Governor's Safe Start guidelines, we're offering limited 3 or 4-week climbing programs for kids and families plus course rentals.
Our outdoor climbing towers are located in Auburn, Bothell, and Snoqualmie, WA.

All staff and participants and staff must check-in and complete a health screening before entering the program area or participating in any program or activity.
