Tree Climbing

Let’s explore the canopy!


What you need:

  • A sturdy tree with low branches
  • A person who wants to climb a tree!

Be aware!

  • Check for biting insects, hairy caterpillars or wasp nests.
  • Check for loose branches.
  • Look out for others climbing in the tree and don’t overload the tree with too many people!
  • Never get lifted into a tree: always climb up yourself.



  • Grip the branches with your hands and use your arm muscles to pull yourself up.

  • Always check that the tree limb is sturdy before putting all your weight on it.

  • Maintain three points of contact with the tree at all times.

  • Don’t climb too high without practicing your climb down first.

  • Never jump out of a tree.
