Rock Climbing Weekly with Veterans, Families and Friends

Shared Adventures supports Veterans and their families.

Shared Adventures uses adventure, recreation, re-evaluation peer-coaching and non-traditional strategies to assist combat veterans with re-integration and re-adjustment to civilian life. Many events are purely recreational and for fun.

Internships and educational activities are planned to promote positive, evidence-based success.

Every Saturday, from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM, Shared Adventures hosts a Rock Climbing session Veterans and their families. Every session starts precisely at 8:45 AM...late comers may not receive all services. Reservations are required.

First timers must contact Shared Adventures by 12 noon on the Thursday before the Saturday climbing, so the Shared Adventures can have everything in place for a first time climber.

There is a $5 fee is for the pizza and drinks each week.

There is no charge for instruction, climbing or equipment. Normally climbing courses cost the general public $31 so this Saturday morning adventure is a terrific value.

Please do not show up without registering; if nobody has registered, there will be no staff available to help.
