This is the summer you start rock climbing!

Join our group for five action-packed days learning to climb and exploring amazing Rattlesnake Point. Under the guidance of our experienced instructors, you’ll learn new skills, build strength and gain the confidence to tackle the real rock faces west of Toronto.

What to expect 

Each day begins at our base in Don Valley Brickworks Park, where you’ll receive instruction and prepare for your climbing adventure. On Monday, you’ll learn the basics of climbing at the Brickworks, which you’ll then put into practice at a local climbing gym on Tuesday. You’ll spend Wednesday and Thursday at Rattlesnake Point, where you’ll put into practice what you’ve learned on the rock. Wednesday night you’ll also have the opportunity to camp at Rattlesnake Point, and on the last day of the program you can put your climbing skills to the test on our high ropes challenge tower and see how far you’ve come!

Get ready to challenge yourself, connect with nature, and leave the program with the skills and confidence to climb rocks. The Urban Wild Climbing program not only provides an exciting climbing experience, but also the opportunity to make new friends and develop important social-emotional skills.

Ares and Activities

For a century, Don Valley Brick Works Park was the site of a major brick manufacturer and supplier of buildings throughout Toronto. That changed in 1989 when the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) acquired the site and began restoration work with the City of Toronto in 1995. This involved creating a series of wetlands that provide habitat for aquatic plants and wildlife and channelling water from nearby Mud Creek through the wetland to filter it naturally before it flows into the Don River and eventually Lake Ontario.

Today, the 200-hectares of wetlands, dry wildflower meadows and forest plant communities create a variety of ecosystem types that provide the ideal setting for Outward Bound Canada’s urban programs, where participants can hike the many nature trails, paddle the Don River and perfect their outdoor skills surrounded by nature in this special area – all within 10 minutes of downtown Toronto and accessible by car, public transit, foot or bike.
