ACG regularly organizes indoor climbing sessions in Chicago, Massachusetts, and New York, where we foster an inclusive and supportive community for climbers of all skill levels.

ACG arranges multiple outdoor climbing trips every year, catering to climbers of all ages and abilities on both rock and ice. These events are led by professional guide partners and are designed to be affordable and accessible to all.

Apart from our usual indoor activities, we also arrange group events targeting young climbers, encouraging parents, friends, and other family members to attend and participate.

Our organization provides sponsorship opportunities for competitive adaptive climbers nationwide through three levels. We offer various forms of assistance, including gear costs, training, competition registrations, and more, tailored to individual needs.
