Dear Outdoor Club Parents:
The d’Youville Outdoor Club is planning our second rock climbing event of the year. As
in other years, this event will take place at Joe Rockhead’s Climbing Gym in Toronto.
It is one of the best indoor climbing facilities in Ontario.
Student members will have the opportunity to take climbing lessons with the professional
and highly trained staff at Joe Rockhead’s. They will learn the basics of using a harness,
tying into ropes, belaying and climbing techniques. At all times, the staff at Joe
Rockhead’s stresses the importance of safety and fun. These lessons and climbing time
will cost each student $25.
The Outdoor Club plans to leave right after school on Friday March 2nd, and arrive at
the climbing gym by 3:30PM. We will climb until 6:30PM and then have dinner at a fastfood restaurant nearby. The school busette will return to the school with all students
by 8:30 PM. We ask that you please be at the school to pick up your son or daughter at
that time.
In this package you will find the permission form and a waiver form from Joe
Rockhead’s. Please complete these in full, and return the forms and money to Mr.
Roach (in the science office) by February 29th. This is the day of our next Outdoor Club
meeting. Please note that we are limited to 24 participants (this is the number of
students that can be transported in the school busette)
Carpe Diem!
