Recreational Tree Climbing is the future of outdoor adventure.
This is a challenge by choice activity, as you decide how high you want to climb.
Recreational Tree Climbing (RTC) gets kids, youth, adults, couples, families off the ground and into the canopy, where they enjoy the views of the surrounding landscape, nature, wildlife, breezes, and more. Lie in hammocks, swing in tree chairs and learn to surf branches as you meet other adventurous people.
Spend time reconnecting with yourself and nature!
For all of TREE CLIMBING CANADA climbs, when you arrive, the instructors/ facilitators will have all the ropes set and ready. You will be taught how to move the knots in sequence to ascend and descend safely. You will be secured into a safety harness and wear a helmet.
RTC is done using saddles, helmets and arborist rope which has been doubled over a suitable anchor point in the tree. This gives the climber a 2 to 1 strength advantage compared to climbing a single rope. Connecting hitches and knots are tied in one end of the rope allowing the climber to ascend and descend safely and easily.
We protect the bark from the sliding action of the rope by using cambium-saving devices.
Once aloft, climbers can do many things. They can walk along branches (always on rope), swing from branches or hang upside down. They might rest on branches or in sky chairs or tree boats (hammocks specially made for tree climbers), make observations as part of a class activity, or simply explore, look, and enjoy.
Don't miss out on your next great adventure!
