Each homeschool visit includes official TRC Event Belayers that assist throughout your time at the facility to ensure each climber gets the most out of their climb time! These open homeschool visits are scheduled once a month; homeschool groups can also set up a time to come in with their group. No specific home school group affiliation is necessary. This visit includes a harness, a two-hour climbing pass, and is priced at highly discounted rate of $12 per participant.

Parents and siblings are welcome (and encouraged!) to join in on the fun! The minimum age to climb is 4 years old, and anyone 11 and younger must have direct adult supervision while out on the climbing floor.
