About

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 and a registered charity (85092 7237 RR0001) servicing youth age 5-18 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 active leaders to create their own successful communities. 

 

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. Climbing is an amazing exercise, similar to gymnastics and yoga, suitable to all ages and abilities.

Climbing requires concentration and calmness in stressful 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 and a lifetime adventure.

Our mission is to provide affordable access of climbing to children and youth and their parents so they can use climbing to empower themselves physically, mentally and spiritually to overcome challenges and achieve big objectives. We believe in access for all and we use program donations to fully subsidize families in need. We are open to ALL youth age 5-18.

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.

We currently run 1 program: 

Financial Subsidy for youth (age 5-18). We subsidize passes, memberships, youth programs, camps, etc. to make sure families can access CNC programs despite financial or other disadvantaged barriers.

How to sign up?

We accept direct applications from youth, parents and staff.
