Adult classes are classes with a higher degree of difficulty or content that requires stricter safety guidelines. Youth students may participate in adult classes if they are accompanied by an adult taking responsibility for their safety and conduct. Families are welcome, but children must be supervised at all times and we may require an additional camping fee depending on the site.

Our adult level classes fall into one of three categories:


Full weekend courses at one of our educational campsites. Friday night until Sunday afternoon.


Meet at our shop in the East Bay for classes or class series. 


Meet at a local park or landmark for single day classes.
