The Mazamas offers a variety of classes for all ability levels. Learn new skills in mountaineering, rock climbing, first aid, ski mountaineering, and more.
Climbing the walls at the Mazama Mountaineering Center is a key feature of all Mazama WILD camps. Whether a camper has climbed since they could stand or they've never touched a harness, climb days are eagerly anticipated by all. Having a friendly and confident belayer can make the difference in a young climber's experience on the wall.
Sign up today to be that belayer! Help us build confidence and a healthy sense of adventure in the next generation of Mazamas.
- Volunteer belay shifts generally run 4-5 hours.
- All youth volunteers must be willing to submit a background check and to sign the Youth Volunteer Policy Agreement.
- New belay volunteers should plan to arrive 15-30 minutes early to do a basic belay test.
