Indoor Rock Climbing Workshop for Learning Disabled Adolescents

August 8, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm


We are really excited to announce our newest community partnership with Go Vertical. On August 8, Process This. will host an indoor rock climbing workshop designed specifically for learning disabled adolescents, ages 11-15.

Research shows that rock climbing improves the quality of life for learning disabled students by impacting physical, mental, and social well being. Here are just a few of the benefits:

  • Strengthens communication and active listening skills.
  • Enhances fine motor skills and spacial awareness.
  • Promotes intentional goal setting, planning, and decision making.
  • Improves concentration and visualization.
  • Boosts self-esteem and self-trust.
  • Supports stress relief and restores balance.
  • Fosters a sense of belonging to a community of like-minded peers.
  • Results in a lasting a sense of achievement.
  • Inspire students to get outdoors.

In this back-to-school workshop students will learn the fundamentals of rock climbing and discuss strategies to improve their upcoming academic year.

As a learning disabled adult (and high school educator), becoming a rock climber allowed me to reach new heights. It is in that spirit, that I have developed this program.

Location: Go Vertical, Philadelphia

Cost: $65 includes workshop, climbing day pass, equipment and lunch.

“My experience with Climb the Wall was extremely positive. The program helped me a lot with problem solving. Before doing the course, I had difficulties with writing papers because I would get caught up with the size of the paper. When I started rock climbing, I started seeing that I would break down the task in my head into smaller tasks, making it easier for me to complete them.”
