Who are we?

In 2011, rock climbers and volunteers from the Vancouver Rock Climbing Group Society founded Climb and Conquer Society Canada as the first-of-its-kind pilot project and a registered charity (85092 7237 RR0001) servicing youth age 13-19 from low income or disadvantaged backgrounds in Squamish and Vancouver, BC. 100% of our programs are $0 to youth and families, paid by community donations. Our goal is to train youth to be future contributing leaders in our community. All youth registrations are done by staff referral.
