Come be gay on the rocks with us!

About The Instructor(s)

Vancouver Queer Climbers

Van Queer Climbers envisions a future in which 2SLGBTQIA+ people are included, represented, and overtly welcomed into all climbing spaces. We are dedicated to fostering representation and programs in climbing that reflect the diverse communities we live in.

Bad Climbers Club

In 2019 we ran a Climbing Outdoors 101 workshop that was so successful that we were inspired to start a women/gender-non-conforming (GNC) only climbing club! Climbing is a wonderful sport, but a difficult one to break into especially if you're new. We're a group of climbers that don't take it so seriously. We like to have fun, be supportive no matter what your climbing abilities, and hold space for women and GNC folks in our climbing community through discounted meet-ups, helpful workshops, and good vibes <3

Our organizations are run on the stolen and ancestral territories of four Coast Salish First Nations: The xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and the kʷikʷəƛw̓əm (Kwikwetlem).

Refund Policy: Tickets are transferable, but unfortunately not refundable at The Bad Academy. We're a crazy small organization and operate on razor-thin margins, and as much as we'd like to account for life getting in the way, we have been burned too many times by no-shows, and last-minute refund requests etc. If you'd like to transfer your ticket to a friend, please email us at hello@thebadacademy.com with the name and email of the person taking your place, and we'll make sure to make the appropriate changes!
