Have fun, climb a tree

Even city kids can do what kids have done for ages; go climb a tree.

Pathfinder http://pathfinder-ed.org/community/tree-climbing.php, an outdoor adventure program, has open climbs on the first Saturday of the month for only $10. The next scheduled climb is on Saturday, Nov. 2.

Participants use a rope and pulley system and the activity can be enjoyed by almost everyone. You don’t need to have strong arm strength, just coordination.

The climb can be enjoyed by children as young as six years old and is on a first-come first-served basis at Lakeview Presbyterian Church, located at 1310 22nd Avenue South, St. Petersburg.

Tree climbing can also be enjoyed at their various on-site climbs. Pathfinder is scheduled to be at the St. Pete Science Festival on the USF campus and at Boktoberfest at Bok Tower Gardens.

If you have questions about the activity, visit Pathfinder’s FAQ page at http://pathfinder-ed.org/community/docs/2012Open%20Climb%20FAQ.pdf.
