What to expect: This climbing weekend is the 4th annual outdoor event for the Midwest adaptive climbing program. It is open to anyone who has been participating in our indoor climbing clinics in the Madison, Milwaukee or Chicago areas. Participants will spend 2 days rock climbing (and possibly enjoying either cycling or kayaking) at Mississippi Palisades State Park and 2 nights camping in the park. In order to attend, you must fill out the application form and attend at least one of the indoor rock climbing clinics at either of the Madison or Chicago programs. Food and gear will be provided during the weekend. Certified guides and experienced volunteers will be there to help you throughout the weekend. Rock climbing outdoors is inherently risky, but we will attempt to minimize that risk by employing safe practices and using all the necessary safety equipment. If you need assistance with everyday tasks such as dressing and using the restroom, please plan to bring someone to help you throughout the weekend, as volunteers may not be able to help you with those things. Participants may also have the opportunity to try kayaking and/or cycling if space allows.


How to Register: Fill out the application below and send it to Synergy, 116 N Schmale Rd, Carol Stream IL 60188 or email your application to Jason Stubbeman at jasons@synergyaa.com. Please note that this application does not guarantee your spot on the trip. Someone will be in touch with you shortly to verify info and confirm your spot. Once we review your application, we will contact you if you are eligible for the trip. After you are confirmed on the trip, you will receive an email with details on schedule and what to pack, etc. As with any physically demanding event, we recommend you check with your physician before registering if you are unsure if it is a good fit for you.
