School Groups


Climbing at Shaker Rocks means joining a group of like-minded individuals who want to support each other’s efforts and cheer each other on. Friendly competitions might break out, but the main goal is to help each other learn and improve your climbing skills. The program includes a belay class, techniques on ropes and boulders, risk management, gym etiquette, and climbing lingo.

Contact or for more information.


Students looking for a different kind of sport will find rock climbing uniquely individual and inspiring. In coordination with their school advisor, students will log their hours of climbing, fitness and yoga at Shaker Rocks. They will not only develop agility, balance, strength, focus and endurance, but naturally develop friendships within the climbing community. They will learn how to problem solve, advance their climbing technique, develop resilience through failure, and have opportunities to help others.
