Before you climb, you need a waiver.
Our Homeschool Program is currently full, but we can add your child to our waiting list.
IBEX Climbing Gym Brings P.E. Back Home!
Through climbing, we aim to help children build self-confidence, learn valuable problem-solving skills, and develop teamwork and leadership skills. Children will develop their social and athletic abilities by using their minds and muscles in an environment that fosters healthy active lifestyles. They will make new friendships with other homeschoolers, get in a great workout, and have a blast doing it!
Ages 7 to 18
Our younger participants (12 and under) will begin their weekly session with an hour of warmup in our bouldering area. Our coaching staff will lead them in climbing games like Freeze, Shark Attack, and Simon Says on the wall. After bouldering warm-ups they will go downstairs to climb the big walls. They will take turns climbing as our staff belays, coaches and instructs. Those not climbing will rest from their own climbs while cheering on the current climber or traversing the nearby wall sections, The session will end with sets of exercises intended to improve endurance, strengthen muscle, and burn off excess energy. The length and intensity of these exercises will vary based on the groups energy level that day, the specific activities of the day, and the abilities of each individual.
Our older participants (13 and over) will go through our standard Ropes and What-Knot class on their first day. This will allow them to belay for each other under the supervision of our staff. A weekly session will begin with being lead through stretching exercises. After stretching they will go upstairs to the bouldering area to warm up. Our coaches will lead them through games and drills focused on improving climbing technique, gaining strength, and honing balance and coordination. Top rope climbing will follow warm-ups. Pairs will take turns belaying for each other while our coach gives instruction, tips, and supervision. As climbers progress they will be assigned new projects and goals to work toward. The session will end with burnouts lead by our staff. Burnouts are intense workouts done to exhaustion maximizing muscle build and caloric burn while enhancing endurance. As this session does cross the typical lunch time, participants are encouraged to bring high energy snacks like protein and granola bars.

Take a Look At What Else IBEX Climbing Gym's Facility Has to Offer
Don't have anyone to climb with? No problem, our auto belays are great for individual kids and adults looking for a quick session.
At approximately 32 feet tall, this is where beginners should start (along with our Ropes and What Knot Course). Experienced climbers can then discover countless routes and levels to climb.
Physically challenging and uniquely fun, the bouldering wall is 12 feet tall and requires a movement-focused style of climbing. With crash pads set up for kids and adults alike, those who have not taken Ropes and What Knot will be limited to the bouldering area.
IBEX Climbing Gyms kids wall is 20 feet of easy to grab holds under a soft squisy mat. Parents can comfortably watch as their kids play around and build confidence. We have had kids as young as 2 get on!
While you can get in a great climb, we also provide the resources and classes to help you get into shape. Whether its building strength or endurance, we have you covered.
