Last weekend, 16 Cub scouts and parents from San Ramon spent the night at Diablo Rock Gym. The 6 to 10 year-olds started the night off with pizza, climbing, and then some sleep that night in the gym. Climbing fits in perfectly with the Cub Scouts theme. The cubs often go hiking, camping, and on other outdoor adventures.
According to the Cub Scout website, "The aim of Cub Scouting is to help boys grow into good citizens who are strong in character and personally fit." The boys were able to work on their leadership skills, facing adversity, and helping each other out through belaying.
Diablo Rock and the other Touchstone gyms often have overnighters at the gyms. Stop by and check out the great overnight trips that are going on at your local gym.
