Learn on our Rock Climbing Wall
The E&H climbing tower rises 40 feet into the air. It is surrounded by a serene meadow, bordered by the Emory woods, and rigged for excitement and clinical instruction.
The 40-foot vertical climbing surface offers a variety of challenging climbs (ranging from 5.6 to 5.10 plus) and one 3-foot overhang. Two independent climbers may be belayed simultaneously, and one face of the tower is permanently set up for rappelling and ascending, a feature that has proved invaluable for the rescue scenarios.
The tower is an essential tool for ropes instruction, allowing for a thorough clinical instruction within a convenient, controlled environment.
Learn Kayaking in our Heated Pool
For first-timers or seasoned climbers, the tower provides an excellent opportunity for participants to gain comfort and competency with gear and climbing practices and techniques. Climb on!
The E&H Outdoor Program has exclusive access every Thursday night for kayak roll clinics in our heated pool. This is a great opportunity to learn the basics or expand your knowledge into the world of freestyle boating.
Students work one on one with ACA certified Kayaking instructors, and student leaders who have perfected the art of kayaking over their four years in the Outdoor Program. These clinics are your door into a much larger world of whitewater kayaking!
