The BC program restarted in 2022 after a 2 year pause. We are currently focusing our time and effort to refine and grow our therapeutic climbing program. We launched a pilot program and it was a success. Our goal now is to raise the funds necessary to provide this program throughout the year, with an ongoing intake and referral process.
In the meantime, our community climbing programs will be paused until our funding sources are secure and sustainable and we have created a year round therapeutic climbing program. In 2023 we will continue to offer climbing days at both the Arc’teryx Climbing Academy and the SCI BC Whistler Weekend.
What can you expect from our team? We train all of our volunteers before they attend any of our programs, and these people span diverse backgrounds and skill sets, such as healthcare professionals, student volunteers, rock guides, and recreational climbers.
We are currently planning and launching some fundraising events and initiatives. If you or someone you know could support our team with fundraising, communications and event support, we’d love to connect with you!
We are also currently searching for a program sponsor for the therapeutic climbing program!
We are rebuilding our community after a long pause, so if you are interested in climbing with us, volunteering with us, supporting us with operational/admin capacity, or if you think you or your organization can support us financially or in kind, please get in touch with us.
