FLASH FOXY EDUCATION PROGRAM

We are excited to announce the our national Flash Foxy Education Program!

In 2016, we transitioned from just a web presence to events in 2016 with the inaugural Women’s Climbing Festival in Bishop, CA and the success of this event led us to create a second location for the Women’s Climbing Festival in Chattanooga in 2017. 

The Flash Foxy Education Program was created from an identified need for national standardized curriculum for recreational climbers. While the AMGA has been providing standardized curriculum for the professional development of guides for many years, we don’t have an equivalent for recreational climbers.

Education Program will offer opportunities nationwide for climbers to develop skills in preparation for recreating outdoors. We will provide comprehensive courses, with national curriculum standards, for recreational climbers to learn safety standards and preferred practices (including technical systems and environmental/social responsibility) across a variety of climbing disciplines. Our instructors are women, enbies, BIPOC and other folks from under-represented groups. Instructors are also AMGA-certified and receive comprehensive training in our curriculum from our Education Manager and curriculum creator, Josie McKee.

With the generous support from Arc’teryx, we are able to provide several courses in Spring 2020 on various topics, provide guided services by Women’s Wilderness and Whitney Basecamp, and also provide scholarship opportunities.

The goal of Flash Foxy Education is to provide a nationwide standard curriculum for climbers to learn safe techniques and preferred practices across a variety of climbing disciplines.
