School Groups


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.

Here's what you'll need to do:
1. Work with your school advisor to design your independent study
2. Bring your school's Independent Study forms to Shaker Rocks and have them signed by a manager
4. Climb! Log your hours when you climb at Shaker Rocks

Cost: $60
*Free for Shaker Heights public school students. Make sure to bring your ID when signing up.
Duration: One semester
Includes: Rental gear for six weeks
Prerequisites: Monthly EFT or Prepaid Gym membership
