Homeschooling families are invited to bring their homeschoolers to Onsight Rock Gym every 1st and 3rd Thursday each month from 1 PM - 4 PM for an fun day of indoor rock climbing at a special discounted rate. We encourage older students and parents to get involved and learn how to belay. During these sessions, we will offer homeschooling parents and students 13 years and over a FREE Intro to Climbing Class offered at 1pm to teach you all the basics of top rope belaying. Rock climbing is a great way to stay active, fit, and healthy. It not only challenges our bodies but also engages our minds, teaches valuable problem solving skills, and builds self confidence.
