Climb and Conquer

About Us

Founded by volunteers from VRCG in 2011, Climb and Conquer Society Canada is a registered charity (85092 7237 RR0001) run entirely by volunteers located in Vancouver, BC. Our MISSION is to support youth (age 4-18) from disadvantaged backgrounds to build healthy self-esteem, relationships and leadership skills through rock climbing and caring mentorships.


We run 4 programs:

1.Grizzly Bear Youth Clubopen to all grade 8-12 youth, is a dinner club monthly October to June on a Friday night where we eat dinner together, indoor rockclimb, meet other more experienced indoor/outdoor climbers, learn university/career skills and plan for exciting club activities together. It’s youth-initiated and so you get to lead and plan for Grizzly Bear.

Great way to meet new friends. No prior climbing experiences required. The event is provided free of cost or by donations. Open to everyone.

Schedule is @


We would like to thank volunteers from the Climb and Conquer Society Canada who operate this club.
