Let’s climb in trees !
Help our association Compagnons des Cimes to raise money for their first treeclimbing event next September !
Compagnons des Cimes is a young association based in the south west of France which aims at bringing treeclimbing and environmental education to everyone.
But what is Treeclimbing exactly?
Treeclimbing is an outdoor physical activity allowing people to discover the amazing and diverse world of a forest's canopy. Using only tree branches, climbing techniques and specific knots, participants discover and learn about the biodiversity contained within a tree canopy.
Treeclimbing is based on the “No Trace” philosophy. Respect of the tree avoiding any contact between the rope and the tree itself, using rope sleeves, is of high importance. In keeping with this philosophy, all activities are set in the morning and removed by the end of the days climbing.
Learning to climb in tree canopies, moving from branch to branch, feeling the power of nature and more importantly, gaining an eduction about the importance of our natural environment are all fundamentals of tree climbing.
On the top of the physical aspects of climbing trees, we also aim to organize suspended concerts, group readings, movie projections as well as events related to nature consciousness and education.
Our Project :
In an area like Aquitaine, where much of life is focused around the ocean, treeclimbing seems to be a complementary activity to discover nature in an alternative way. Through the creation of our association, we aim to collaborate with schools, disabled centers, and other outdoor activity centers to provide a new way for them to entertain and educate. We will also extend our offer to private groups and individuals.
Who are we?
We are both addicted to nature, outdoor activities and heights. Rockclimbing, mountaineering, hiking and everything related to the outdoors !
Yannick, Treeclimbing instructor
A rope worker by trade and a climber each weekend, he sure loves the ropes! He spends every free moment in the mountains, climbing and taking photos!
As head guide he helps everyone to test their abilities to climb trees from the bottom to the top !
Laure, Head of the association
She loves transmitting her knowledge about the outdoors. Currently training to become a hiking instructor, she also loves the outdoors and wants to share it with everyone she can.
Why help us ?
This is our associations first year of operations, and after developing a good contact with the local councils and general population, we are now preparing our first event for September. For events like this, our association needs a lot of gear.
In order to purchase all equipment needed to safely teach our groups and students, we are looking to raise 3000€
These funds would go towards the purchase of the remainder of the equipment needed :
8 Harnesses for kids
8 Harnesses for adults
8 Rope sleeves
Pay the insurance
