The Adaptive Climbing Program has been created to assist students with different abilities to experience the joys and benefits of climbing. Our goal is to empower every participant that visits the climbing tower to reach their potential. Whether you are a complete beginner or experienced climber we gladly welcome your participation.
The RWC partners with UCF students enrolled in the Doctorate in Physical Therapy program to provide assisted workouts to students with disabilities. All Student Assisted Workout Trainers work in consultation with UCF Physical Therapy Faculty members.
