Climbing Wall Group Rentals

Want to host your next student group gathering, staff development training, or birthday at our climbing facility? The new Climbing Center is a great place to take a group of people looking to have fun, experience something exciting, and learn more about themselves and the group.

University and community groups may rent the climbing wall for a facilitated group program. Group rental gives a group exclusive access to the climbing wall during a designated rental time. Reservations are preferably made at least 14 days in advance.

Our Parties and Gatherings Rates offer the opportunity for your group to get their fill of climbing. Our Rental rates are also listed in the table below. Visit the Outdoor Adventures Center, call us at 402-472-4777, or fill out our group program request form at the link below for more details.
