Empowering future generations of climbing stewards
In 2020, SCC launched a new youth outreach program titled Rising Climbing Stewards (RCS). RCS is designed to connect young climbers with the stewardship and preservation of outdoor climbing areas – work that is necessary to ensure future generations of climbers can experience the same, if not improved, access to outdoor recreation. The program engages groups in a presentation and hands-on activity that teaches elements of the Climber’s Pact and climbing area etiquette, followed by a trail day at a local climbing area.
So far SCC has had the opportunity to partner with school clubs, youth climbing teams and affinity groups from all over the southeast including:
- NOBL Climbing Team
- High Point Climbing Team
- Gadrock Climbing Team
- McCallie School Climbing Club
