If you are interested in any of the below educational opportunities for your group, please contact Daniel Burke at the office: 443-674-9025, on his cell phone at 410-245-9561, or at his email:    


Students conduct authentic scientific exploration in an inquiry/problem-based learning curriculum that meets Pennsylvania Academic Standards for Language Arts Math and Science. A day at Climbers is a day out of the classroom, but definitely not a day out of instruction. We engage students in education in ways not possible in the classroom, and our program perfectly augments classroom teaching.
