SCHOOL & YOUTH GROUPS
Elevate Your Group Trips
Our youth group programs combine physical activity with learning new skills, and have fun while pushing themselves to try something new and exciting. Perfect for school field trips, university clubs, and church groups. Our facility is available every day. We can also design custom activities for your youth group.
Group Rate – $27.50/person (HST included, minimum 10 climbers)
This special pricing is available only during off-peak times:
- weekdays for events ending by 6 pm
- weekends for events starting at 6 pm or later.
Peak times rate is $40/person. Special pricing not available during March Break, Winter Break, and the month of July and August. A deposit is required to confirm the booking, and the group leader must pay the balance in full on arrival.
Children 13 and Under
Children 13 and under can enjoy top-rope climbing, bouldering, auto-belay stations, and slacklining under the close supervision of our staff (staff-to-student ratio of 1:6). The staff members ensure the students are properly tied in, and operate the belay device as they climb.
Children 14 or Older
Children 14 or older have the opportunity to take our Intro Lesson. The course will teach everyone how to belay and use top-rope climbs safely. After this one-hour long training, they are qualified to climb independently.
True North Climbing takes extra care to make our facility as safe as possible. The climbing area is entirely padded, from the 6” padding in the roped areas to 12” in the advanced bouldering area. Our padding is seamless to reduce the chance of injury when landing on the edge of a pad. All of our Instructors are certified (by ACMG or CWA) and have first aid training. As well, we have climbing helmets available at no additional charge for school boards that require them.
Important Note: Please ensure that every child arrives with a properly completed Minor Waiver form signed and initialed by their parent. Any child that arrives without this necessary form will not be allowed to participate. We require that the teacher organizing a group visit collect all the waiver forms several days before your event, and carefully review them to make sure all parent initials and signatures are filled in.
We are on the approved field trip vendor list for the Simcoe Country District School Board, and for Scouts Canada.
