Northeast Illinois Council Portable Climbing Wall
The Northeast Illinois Council Portable Climbing Wall is available for events all over the Northeast Illinois area, and has been used to serve other area councils in their recruiting events and celebrations. We are pleased to be able to rent this wall at a reasonable cost to you thanks to donors who have helped to underwrite expenses associated with our efforts. We look forward to working with organizations to help spark an interest in fitness, the outdoors and everything the Scouting world has to offer!
As of right now we can only do weekend bookings. Thank you for your understanding. Please read the Climbing Wall Regulations before submitting a request.
