Boy Scouts : BSA Rock Climbing Merit Badge Program
Scouts can earn all their requirements for their Climbing Merit Badge – with the exception of the First Aid Skills – when they challenge themselves with the Vertical Adventure Climbing Merit Badge Program!
Our program starts with climbing and rappelling on real rock cliffs in beautiful Devil’s Lake Park, Wisconsin. It’s a fun and exciting way to challenge Scouts and allow them the chance to advance themselves in Scouting.
Before the actual day, Scouts will take part in a “ground” school where they will learn the basic skills needed to take part in climbing. This lesson will teach Scouts the basics of what’s involved in climbing before they get started. The climbing day itself focuses on the Scout’s ability to complete their climbs, rappels and belays for their Merit Badge. All aspects of maintaining a safe climbing experience are reinforced throughout the day’s adventure. Climbing and Rating Systems are also discussed.
Need a place to stay and camp for the weekend? Join us at our at Hidden Pines Adventure Center located near Lake Delton and Devil’s Lake with camping, cabins, shooting range, climbing wall, and more! Nothing beats coming back from Rock Climbing or any adventure with VA and relaxing in a well appointed, rustic feeling cabin or campsite. You will wake up refreshed ready for another day of adventure!
