Climb for Courage

Achieving Growth By Conquering Adversity

At Climb for Courage, pediatric cancer patients and their siblings (ages 5-18) are matched 1:1 with a U.S. Navy SEAL and are guided through a series of rock-climbing challenges derived from a curriculum on Posttraumatic Growth. As an experiential learning program, Climb for Courage allows the SEALs to facilitate individual rock-climbing challenges for the little warriors in a safe and controlled environment that encourages the kids to learn how to achieve growth through adversity and teamwork while gaining new abilities, having fun, and forming new relationships. Their experience coupled with the long-lasting relationship formed with their Navy SEAL mentor provides each child with the additional source of strength and encouragement they need in their battle against cancer.

Climb Higher

Climb for Courage is reinforced by our second experiential learning program, Climb Higher. Climb Higher is our alum program for returning little warriors who are looking to continue to grow through their trauma and be reunited with Navy SEAL mentors through a day of indoor rock-climbing. The program is designed to reinforce the learnings and skills acquired through Climb for Courage and serve as an opportunity for One Summit’s like-minded warriors to connect and share stories of resilience.
