Atlantic Climbing School offers three types of courses:

Experience courses are designed for first-time climbers who want to give rock climbing a try without the time commitment of a more in-depth course, or for experienced climbers with a limited schedule. These courses focus less on instruction and more on the experience. If rock climbing is just one of several activities you want to experience while on vacation in Acadia, then a half day experience course is a perfect choice.



Instruction courses are designed for those who are prepared to roll up their sleeves and learn. These courses focus on specific rock climbing skills and techniques to improve a client's skill level and knowledge. We have developed a unique continuum of courses that mirror the progression that many of today's most skilled and experienced climbers followed in their own climbing development.


Guiding courses are specifically oriented towards experienced climbers interested in sampling the local classics. An ACS guide can provide a safe half or full day of climbing to allow more experienced climbers to enjoy the unique rock climbing terrain Acadia has to offer.





Bouldering courses: Bouldering is quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of rock climbing. Its simplicity and social nature make it a great alternative. Perfect for people of all ages and ability levels, bouldering is an ideal way to enjoy climbing in its purest form.

-We also offer courses in self rescue, big wall techniques, and aid climbing.
