There is great potential for positive life-changing experiences, character building and self-esteem development for youth through rock climbing and other outdoor adventure activities. Involvement in physical activities, like climbing, promotes a healthy lifestyle and improves fitness in a supportive environment. These valuable benefits should be accessible to all children.
Urban Peaks is focused on fulfilling this mission by providing climbing and adventure sports programming to New England-based organizations serving underrepresented youth, including schools, day camps, and mental health intervention services. Urban Peaks partners with local organizations to provide access to activities, facilities and trained staff, as well as program cost assistance.
