In 2011, rock climbers and volunteers from the not-for-profit Vancouver Rock Climbing Group Society founded Climb and Conquer Society Canada as the first-of-its-kind pilot project in BC and a registered charity (85092 7237 RR0001) servicing youth age 5-18 from low-income or disadvantaged backgrounds in Squamish and Vancouver, BC. Our goal is to provide free access of climbing and counselling to youth (age 5-18) to support them to be active leaders to create their own successful communities.
100% of our programs are $0 to youth and families, paid by community donations.
Our current 2 programs:
-Providing admission passes for youth (age 5-18) and their family to try out indoor rock climbing.
-Finding free counselling resources for youth and families
Our past programs include one on one mentorship, youth group, rock climbing day trips in Squamish BC, rock climbing overnight summer camps, youth employment program, and community fundraisers.
What is indoor rock climbing?
Indoor climbing is an increasingly popular form of rock-climbing performed on artificial structures that attempt to mimic the experience of outdoor rock-climbing in a more controlled and supervised environment. It is an amazing exercise, similar to gymnastics and yoga, suitable to all ages and abilities; no prior experiences needed.
Climbing requires active concentration and creating calmness and comfort in stressful and uncomfortable situations. The climber needs to be a critical thinker and a problem-solver, persevering through challenging situations and practicing honest self-evaluation, constant self-improvement, and teamwork. Climbing is both a sport, a lifetime adventure, and a daily mindfulness practice.
