Boy Scouts & Girl ScoutsProviding year-round climbing adventures in Joshua Tree National Park & Tahquitz

Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts 

Joshua Tree is the perfect place for Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts! We believe it is important for them to camp and climb and experience nature in a rugged environment. California Climbing School founders Erik and Theresa were both Sea Scouts in their youth in the San Francisco Bay. As adults they have taught climbing to many different scouting groups from around the state of California.

  • The Climbing Merit Badge option includes 3 climbs, 3 belays, 3 rappels, knots, rope coiling, and 1st aid review.
  • Our maximum ratio for a climbing merit badge is 1 guide to 5 scouts.
  • Our max ratio for non-merit badge climbing is 1 to 6.

Erik is a current merit badge counselor with the Boy Scouts of America and has recently re-certified his Youth Protection Training.
