Boston Bouldering Youth Programs

By Boston Bouldering Project

We offer afterschool sessions and full-day programs designed to help kids foster self-confidence as they climb, jump, problem solve, and explore their creativity.

BBP Somerville.
This program runs during the school year.

Afterschool classes begin September 1st through the end of the school year. Full day programs occur during school vacation days.

  • Afterschool (schools) run Monday-Friday for 2-hour afterschool classes from 4-6PM.
  • Weekend classes are also run in 2-hour classes (Saturday only).
  • Adventure Days and Adventure Weeks (during school vacations) run 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM for full day programs.

Ages: 5 to 14.

AGES 5-14, Climbers are enrolled by appointment in groups of 4-5 children. Contact us to learn how you can schedule Adventure Days. 

We will be adding in Sessions this year! They will be 8-10 weeks of one class per week, 4-6pm. This guarantees a spot with the same kids and instructor, and reduces the overall cost. Sessions will become available for October or November, so keep an eye out!

Additional information

We have three youth programs available for different age groups and interests. School of Pebbles for ages 5-7 after school and weekends, School of Rocks for ages 8-14 after school and weekends, and vacation/holiday programming called Adventure Days/Weeks for ages 5-14.

All programs include: Rock climbing, STEAM, rope swing, slack-lining and empowering skills that will last a lifetime.

Our staff members are all experienced climbers with more than enough energy to keep your kids psyched for the whole week. Our 1:5 ratio allows the counselors to get to know their kids, make sure their needs are met, and create memories with them that will last forever. 

Program continues to run during Winter vacation, February vacation, and April vacation.
