Midwest Adaptive Climbing Club

The Midwest Adaptive Climbing club is a new program offered by Adaptive Adventures in partnership with Adventure Rock Indoor Climbing Gym & Boulders Climbing Gym.

Midwest Adaptive Climbing  provides opportunities for persons with physical disabilities and their loved ones to enjoy the sport and lifestyle of climbing. We provide instruction, adaptive gear, plenty of encouragement and a cool community of people to help reach to new heights.   

                
 

Why Climbing???  Is Climbing for me???

Climbing is an activity which can be easily adapted to almost any ability level, and it fosters an amazing sense of community, trust, courage and accomplishment.   As many of our participants can understand, the metaphor of climbing is appropriate for breaking through perceived barriers and summiting new challenges.   Whether you have an amputation, spinal cord injury, visual impairment or limited mobility due to CP, SB, MS, MD or other physical conditions, we have opportunities for you to experience or excel in sports.  We are currently offering programs for both children (ages eight and above) and adults.
