Youth After School Programs

2021 / 2022 Youth Programs

Registration NOW AVAILABLE!

Our team has worked incredibly hard to adapt our usual five-star kid programming to the risks and restrictions caused by the ongoing pandemic. What this means is that each class will isolate to small pods with an instructor for the duration of the program, and the children in programming will count towards the overall capacity limit we've set for the building. And as with everyone, each child will be expected to wear a mask at all times while inside our facility.

There are a limited number of spots each day, so if your little monkey is ready to get back in the gym, sign-up today. All programs meet one day per week. Check out additional details below!

For preschool children age 3 - 4, our Little Ninjas program provides a perfect introduction to the sport of climbing. Each one hour class is designed to promote body awareness and listening skills through a variety of physical games and climbing exercises. There's also plenty of time for fun, too!  Parents must be present in the facility throughout the class, and face masks must be worn by children and adults alike. Space is limited to 3 climbers per group.

Schedule: Tuesdays 10:30a - 11:30a (one calendar month at a time)

Price: $150

Private Lessons

Homeschooling this year? Prefer to have your own quaranteam for regularly scheduled lessons?

Please inquire for availability. We have limited time slots for private programming, but we are happy to try to make it work.

~Session lengths can be 1 hour, 1.5 hours, or 2 hours~

~Limited time slots are available between 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., Tuesday through Friday~

Behavior Policy

As you can imagine, this is a challenging time to manage behavior that may put the rest of the group at risk. We tend to work with a 3-step protocol that includes working with the climber to better understand why we are asking them to follow certain procedures and how it is for their benefit and the benefit of the group. Our next step is to provide a safe space for them to be able to take a moment of reprieve and then chat with one of our program leaders until they are ready to rejoin the group. We hope that this will be enough for any climber. In the unlikely event that this isn’t enough for them, we will ask parents to come and pick-up the climber and we can try again next week. If this happens on another day, we will follow the same process, as it is hopefully familiar to the climber. If the climber goes home again on this second occasion, we will likely ask the climber to not return to programming and booking fees will be forfeited. Please review our SP Kids Code of Conduct with your child so everyone understands our expectations prior to the start of programming. We will review the Code of Conduct on the first day of programming. If there are any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@saltpumpclimbing.com.

Inclement Weather Policy

All Salt Pump Youth programming cancellations will be made at the discretion of Salt Pump Climbing. We will take into account many factors, including weather forecasts, local conditions and school district guidance. Please do not assume that programming is automatically cancelled if local in-school instruction has been cancelled. Parents and participants can expect an email no later than four (4) hours before the scheduled programming (ie. by noon for the regularly scheduled 4pm programming). We will send out a day-of email, as well as post to social media, if programming is to be cancelled. In the case of cancellation due to inclement weather, a free-day pass (with rentals) will be given to each participant. No refunds or make-up days will be offered. If there are any questions, please feel free to contact us at info@saltpumpclimbing.com.
