Youth After School Programs

2021 Youth Programs

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!

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
