The boys really enjoyed the experience. They were able to learn how to tie the ropes, belay, climb and rappelling. Being able to have merit badge counselors and even an Eagle Scout instructor was a benefit with most of the Scouts earning the badge.

If your looking for something to do outdoors that's a little different, this is the perfect day trip. The hike to get to the rock climbing had beatiful views. Adam was an amazing instructor and great company would highly recommend!!!!
