Every Saturday and Sunday from March 16 to May 19, experienced climbers from Riverside Outfitters teach students the proper techniques for ascending into the tree, limb walking, and descending the tree. All equipment is provided.
Tree climbing is a relatively strenuous activity that requires a moderate level of physical fitness.
Riverside Outfitters works to get Richmond-ers out on the water, up into the trees, and out on the trails with a variety of natural outdoor excursions. The staff helps locals and visitors engage with the area's rich landscape, guiding fleets of rafts, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and innertubes down the James River, which the Daily Press described as having "the only urban whitewater rafting experience available in the country." High ropes courses and climbing seminars teach first-timers how to nimbly break from gravity's embrace, while outdoor summer camps teach kids to engage wildlife without the scratchy fingers that come from texting with tree bark.

“The trip was very scenic and lots of fun. Our guide named Luke really knew his stuff and we felt very prepared for what rapids lay ahead. There were only a couple class 3 rapids but the "surfing" at the end of the trip made up for that!! ”
“It was a fun and easy trip!”
“These guys were very professional. We had a great time!”
