Ouray Climbers Alliance Youth Climbing Scholarships

The Ouray Climbers Alliance is excited to offer full scholarships to youth climbing summer day camps for kids residing in Ouray and Montrose counties. The scholarships aim to help financially disadvantaged youth to explore climbing or further their climbing skills while learning how to be good stewards of our natural resources. The funds made possible with the generous help by the Montrose Community Foundation and by the OCA member donations.

The scholarships will help fulfill the OCA vision to educate youth about responsible climbing practices as well as exposing them to the joy of climbing.  To apply, please go to the scholarship application page.
