Equipment List

Medical Form


Whether you are a rain forest canopy researcher, an arborist, or just a kid at heart, everyone loves to climb trees.  Recall the excitement and sense of adventure when you first crawled into the branches to look inside a bird's nest.  Then you swung from limb to limb without a thought of ropes and harnesses.  But what about that big tree down the street you always wanted to climb, but couldn't reach the first branch?  This course will teach you how to use ropes and technical climbing gear to reach the top of any tree, to move around, and even to climb from tree to tree without returning to the ground.  All equipment is included in the course fee.  Attendance Policy - You can miss one day and attend the overnight, or attend all the day sessions and miss the overnight, and still get PE credit.
