Adaptive Climbing Group-Chicago
This is the 3rd installment of regular programming of adaptive climbing. A.C.G. Chicago launched in 2015. And is currently operating in weekly session in Brooklyn Boulders Chicago.
We kicked off in May 2015 training 50 volunteers in adaptive climbing technique and disability etiquette. We now offer regular weekly programming on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm-9pm
In June 2015, With the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, we teamed up to provide summer climbing sessions for United States Veterans. 2016, Jesse Brown Veterans Hospital takes part in weekly climbing session.
Spring 2016 launched "ACG Kids Sessions" which are monthly on Saturday mornings. We could not do this without the support of local community and partner gyms First Ascent and Brooklyn Boulders.
