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.
