GUP Climbing Team Rocks the Cities

In early April, eleven members of the Ground UP Adventures Climbing Team traveled to the Vertical Endeavors Rock Gym in Minneapolis.  Some of the VE walls are 60’ high, somewhat taller than our team is used to, but all performed great, placing very respectably for such a large competition (over 100 kids) in such a large metro area.  GUP climbing coaches also represented us well.  Emily Orr took third in the Women’s Advanced category, with Elizabeth Carr just behind in fifth.  Veteran coaches Betsy and Dexter Perkins topped the senior citizen, oops, I mean the Master’s Women’s and Men’s categories.  See more photos from the competition, taken by Board member and GUP Photographer Wes Peck at https://www.flickr.com/photos/endracing/sets/72157649654988854/.
 

Spring is here!

Spring is here, and GUP is getting ready for action.  We've spent all winter dreaming up new ways to get youth outside, active, and adventuring.  Some quick updates:

  • Ice is gone from the river and the boathouse is on the way!  We're finishing up the second shipping container, which will serve as a real office for our staff this summer.  Interested in working or volunteering?  Drop us a line.
  • It's never too early to get ready for Summer Adventure Camp!  Email gupadventurecamp@gmail.com if you have an interested youth.

See you outdoors!
