Season's Greetings
from ROCK'n & JAM'n
In order to come up with ideas for the preface of each newsletter, I review what was written in previous versions. I think my December newsletters (first written in 2010) will be my December Newsletter Legacy... After re-reading its verse, I am STILL hard pressed to come up with a more appropriate summation of my thoughts. So, in the same vein as Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant Thanksgiving gift that keeps on giving... here it goes...
Whether it's a day of climbing, snowboarding, or just kicking back and enjoying the company of family and friends, the holidays are made richer by just spending time with those people that are special to you.

As I find myself elbow deep in cookie dough, I reflect on times spent with those that have enriched my life. And, given the amount of baking I do over the holidays, I have plenty of time to reflect!

I give thanks to family for the morals and ethics that have shaped my life, I give thanks to a supportive husband without whom there would be no ROCK'n & JAM'n, I give thanks to a wonderful and hard working ROCK'n & JAM'n team of employees, and last but certainly not least I give many thanks to all those that have chosen ROCK'n & JAM'n as a place to spend their time enjoying the company of others.

Best wishes for a Happy Holiday Season!

Pre-enrollment for
Youth Programs start
 December 10th!


A comprehensive semester based series of ongoing classes for kids 8-11 years old. In order to ensure and instill safety in our next generation of climbers we will take the entire semester to teach them how to tie their knot, belay, and to perform safety checks.  Above all else we want them to have FUN!!  There will be plenty of time for learning technique, games, and meeting new friends also.  No experience necessary.


Our Youth School offers two different classes (Level I and Level II) for those that are 12-18 years old looking to improve their climbing and to have fun!  We will make sure each climber is having a blast on our climbing wall, while being safety conscious.  We understand climbing is an individual sport but we work together like a team and support each other. Our instructors will improve and increase technique, strength, and flexibility while teaching new skills and strategies to make each individual a better climber.  Regardless of level, all Youth School students are encouraged to attend local climbing competitions and volunteer in the climbing community with our bi-annual Crag Clean-Up.
