Family Rock Climbing Activities
Acadia Mountain Guides Climbing School guides enjoy climbing with families to provide unique experiences for children and parents. After meeting your family and learning about their experiences and goals, your guide(s) will select an area that will best balance everyone's needs and insure fun and satisfaction. It could be a lower angled climb to a mountaintop, a hidden away canyon, or a sea side vertical playground overlooking Frenchman's Bay. Because all of our guides are also PCIA (Professional Climbing Instructors Association) certified, we can offer you a wider variety of locations, set-up methods and coaching techniques than any other local climbing school. Our goal is to involve the whole family in the sport of climbing. And who knows, a future world champion might emerge.
Are you vacationing in the Midcoast area? Family programs may be scheduled in the Camden area (full day rate only)
For those rafting or camping in interior Maine, we also offer programs along the Kennebec River (The Forks area) and the Penobscot River (Millinocket area) for the full day family rate.
