Park/Recreation Climbs (Rec Climbs) allow you the opportunity to climb into tall and mature trees using rope and saddle, under the watchful eye of a tree climbing adventure guide.
No experience is necessary & all equipment and instruction is provided.
We keep it simple for you. We handle the safety inspections and provide all the gear so you can experience recreational tree climbing safely.
Rec Climbs are offered through municipal Park & Recreation Departments, advertised in their Activity Guides, and held in their beautiful parks,
Participants are required to pre-register directly with the host community's Rec Dept.
All climbers need a completed waiver in order to climb. You will receive an email with pre-climb info and the waiver prior to your climb. We will have copies of the waiver on-site.
We will send an e-mail with pre-climb info and our waiver in the days ahead of your climb. The form will also be available on-site. Please note that each Rec Dept may have their own separate waivers.
