The Junior Mountaineering Team gives enthusiastic kids the tools they need to explore their local mountains and the adventures that lay beyond: to teach them to be alpinists. While this mission may have a clear technical focus, the impact that the Junior Mountaineering Team has on its participants goes far beyond learning about ropes, knots, and climbing technique. This program instills not only a rich aesthetic appreciation for the natural environment but also helps participants gain a deeper awareness about their own inner landscapes and their inter-relatedness to the Earth and those around them. Through an amalgamation of all that is experienced and learned throughout this program, the ultimate objective of the Junior Mountaineering Team is to develop community leaders with a critical consciousness of the essential facets of life.
