The Bend Endurance Academy Climbing Program strives to be at the forefront of climbing focused youth programming. Our programs are designed to inspire and fuel the next generation of climbers, and focus on developing well-rounded climbers who respect the climbing community and excel in the sport. The BEA climbing team consistently has climbers qualify and compete at the national level and has been one of the top 10 youth teams at national championships.
Our climbing coaches bring over 30 years of sport-specific knowledge to the program combined with a professional and holistic approach to coaching and mentoring youth. We are committed to providing a safe and encouraging place for individuals to grow as athletes. We value hard work, commitment to the team, respect for the sport and a willingness to continually strive for improvement. Our coaches work hard to be the coach that each individual needs on any given day and support our athletes in all aspects of their development.
Our indoor climbing programs operate in partnership with the Bend Rock Gym, which serves as our climbing program offices and our training and practice location.
With the plentiful crags and boulders in the Central Oregon area, we also offer the option of outdoor climbing trips to the world-class Smith Rock State Park and other local crags.
If you don’t see a climbing program that fits your child’s ability or age, we encourage you to look into the great youth programs from our partners at Bend Rock Gym
