  • Our Mission

    Autism Climbs empowers individuals with autism and their families through

    climbing activities, leadership development, and positive breakthroughs.


    What we do

    We invite families affected by autism to try out rock climbing. We offer events indoors, as well as 1:1 private lessons, kids night out programs and outdoor clinics.


    No matter how we raise our children, enjoying our time together is always the right thing to do!

  • Why Rock Climbing?

    Unique Benefits

    Climbing offers many unique benefits. It stimulates the mind, strengthens the body and provides a great opportunity to build a strong bond based on encouragement, trust and success.

    New Adventures

    By presenting people with the opportunity to climb, but also teaching them safety and basic technique we encourage them to take on a new hobby and embark on their own adventures.


    We are confident that some kids will take it all the way to the competitive level, experiencing success and providing the autism community with an additional source of pride.
