Bring Rock Climbing to South Georgia!

Donation protected
Hello fellow climbers, adventurers, and community supporters!

We're thrilled to share our dream with you: opening the first indoor climbing gym in Valdosta, Georgia – Barn Door Climbing Gym! As passionate climbers ourselves, we've seen firsthand the transformative power of this sport. It's not just about scaling walls; it's about overcoming challenges, building strength, and fostering a sense of belonging.

Unfortunately, Valdosta currently lacks any indoor climbing facilities. This means climbers in our area have to travel long distances just to train or enjoy their favorite activity. That's why we're determined to bring this exciting opportunity closer to home.

With over 20 years of combined experience in climbing and gym management, we're ready to make Barn Door Climbing Gym a reality. But we can't do it alone. We need your support to secure the equipment, infrastructure, and resources necessary to create a safe and welcoming space for climbers of all ages and skill levels.

Here's how your contribution can make a difference:

Equipment: From climbing holds and crash pads to belay devices and harnesses, your donations will help us stock our gym with top-quality gear to ensure a safe and enjoyable climbing experience.

Facility: Renting or purchasing a suitable space for our gym is a crucial step in our journey. Your support will help cover purchasing costs, renovations, and other expenses associated with establishing our facility.

Programming: We're committed to offering a diverse range of programs and classes, including beginner courses, youth programs, and advanced training sessions. Your donations will enable us to develop and implement these initiatives, making climbing accessible to everyone in our community.

Community Outreach: Beyond just a climbing gym, we envision Barn Door as a hub for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers. Your contributions will support community events, workshops, and outreach efforts aimed at promoting health, fitness, and environmental stewardship.

By supporting Barn Door Climbing Gym, you're not just helping us open a business – you're investing in the well-being and vitality of the Valdosta community. Whether you're a seasoned climber, a local business owner, or simply someone who believes in the power of adventure, we invite you to join us on this journey.

Together, let's open the doors to a new era of climbing in Valdosta. Thank you for your generosity and support!
