1. Triangle Rock Club Richmond’s Homeschool Group Visits – Richmond – January 17 (multiple additional dates)

Triangle Rock Club Richmond
Richmond, Virginia

Thursday, January 17, 2019, from 10 a.m. to noon. Cost: $12/participant. Open homeschool visits are scheduled once a month; homeschool groups can also set up a time to come in for a two-hour visit with their group at a discounted rate. No specific homeschool group affiliation is necessary.

Triangle Rock Club Richmond’s Homeschool Group Visits offer a chance to climb indoors in our top rope climbing room, while giving you the opportunity to connect with other homeschooled students from in and around RVA. Each homeschool visit includes official TRC Event Belayers that assist throughout your time at the facility to ensure each climber gets the most out of their climb time. Harness rentals are included as well; participants should wear close-toed shoes. Climbing shoes are available for an additional $5 per participant.

Parents and siblings are welcomed–and encouraged–to join in on the fun. The minimum age to climb is four years old, and anyone age eleven or younger must have direct adult supervision while out on the climbing floor. All participants must complete a facility waiver, and minors must have a waiver completed by a parent or court-appointed guardian only. Waivers can be submitted online in advance.

Visit the website for information about additional youth events such as summer camps, parents’ night out, overnight lock-ins, and more.
