Dirtbag Climbing Crew

Our Outdoor Climbing Team

This is a program for youth aged 12 and up. Previous participation in our indoor programs is recommended. Maximum group size is 6.


What's DCC all about?

Dirtbag Climbing Crew is our earliest facilitated introduction to outdoor lead climbing and outdoor bouldering. This is a season long outdoor based program that meets weekly at a variety of climbing venues exposing youth to a variety of technical skills and terrain types. 

This is our first step towards a youth leader training stream. A series of programs designed to support and certify our youth climbers into the position of applying for work, or otherwise implement outdoor recreation into their daily lives long-term.

A parent info session for all registrants will be held  some time prior to the first day of programs, in order to answer all questions and concerns in detail.

What Does the Season Look Like?

The season will take place from May until August, starting with one session a week in our first year.

Programs will start locally and expand to other semi-local venues as the season progresses and weather stabilizes. The schedule will prioritise weekends in the spring months, then change based on the group schedule throughout the summer.

In total there will be 14 sessions. The program will be valued at 10 sessions, to account for potential holidays or other conflicting personal events throughout the season.

Venue locations may extend as far as Revelstoke, Canmore, and Cranbrook depending on the commitment of the group. Locations will be decided according to proposed weather and group size for any given day. Carpooling within the team is strongly recommended.
