Acadia Mountain Guides Climbing School

Acadia rock climbing family

Climb with special rates for the whole family

Try something new and exciting that will build family trust and confidence while having fun. Our convenient and affordable family program lets you explore the vertical world together.

Acadia Mountain Guides Climbing School guides enjoy climbing with families to provide unique experiences for children and parents. After meeting your family and learning about their experiences and goals, your guide(s) will select an area that will best balance everyone’s needs and insure fun and satisfaction. It could be a lower angled climb to a mountaintop, a hidden away canyon, or a sea side vertical playground overlooking Frenchman’s Bay. All of our instructors are PCIA or AMGA certified. We believe that we can offer you a wider variety of locations, set-up methods and coaching techniques than any other New England climbing school. Our goal is to involve the whole family in the sport of climbing. And who knows, a future world champion might emerge.

 All courses are tailored to your family. We ask that the majority of participants be from one family, although a friend or two is invited, and that at least one adult participates in the program.

Half day programs are available in Acadia National Park. Full day programs are available in Camden, ME, Clifton (near Bangor), New Hampshire, and along the Kennebec River (The Forks area) and the Penobscot River (Millinocket area).
