Boy Scout Programs

BSA CMB13

Vertical eXcape Climbing Center is a proud supporter of the Boy Scouts of America. We have several programs designed specifically for Scouts and we offer discounts for retail purchases for Scout troops and individuals.

Vertical eXcape is also registered with the Boy Scouts of America Buffalo Trace Council to teach the requirements for the Boy Scout Climbing Merit Badge and the Mountaineering Elective for Venturing’s Ranger Award. Both programs are in-depth studies focusing on all aspects of the vertical world. Upon completion of the program participants will have a solid foundation in rock climbing, rappelling and how to handle outdoor emergencies.

 

RETAIL DISCOUNT PROGRAM
All Boy Scouts with a current registration card receive a 10% discount on all retail purchases. To receive the discount, Scouts must present their current BSA registration card at the time of purchase. We look forward to supplying you with all your outdoor equipment needs.

 

All prices are subject to sales tax.

CLIMBING MERIT BADGE PROGRAM

Cost: $40 per Scout

The Merit Badge Program consists of one approximately 5 hour instructional and hands-on session meeting all the requirements to earn the Climbing Merit Badge. Larger groups may take more time to complete all hands-on requirements.

Upon completing registration and deposit, Scouts will be issued a Climbing Merit Badge book, testing packet, and rope and webbing with which to begin practicing the required knots.

When training day comes around the Scouts are expected arrive with the test packet and online Release of Liability Form completed, to return all issued materials, and bring a blue card ready for our instructors to sign. The Scout’s $10 deposit will only be applied to the final cost of the badge if they return all of their materials in the same condition they were issued.

Participants must be 12 years of age or older in order to belay at Vertical eXcape and meet the requirements of the Climbing Merit Badge.

A short break will be scheduled in to the day, and Scouts are encouraged to bring a snack and/or drinks, or money for vending machine fare.
