Peak Experience VII
Saturday May 12 – Sunday May 13
An overnight mountaineering experience for kids ages 9 – 12
Tickets: $175 / Rubin Members $ 157.50
Forty kids aged 9-12, roped together alpine style, confront the challenges of climbing Mt. Everest. They discover the beauty, consider the perils, experience the culture, and practice team dynamics. Their expedition leader is world-renowned high altitude mountaineer Robert M. Anderson. He is aided by Sherpa guides from Nepal and experienced climbers from around the world. The goal is not only to reach the summit, but also for all to return unharmed. The children carefully make their way to each of the four camps along the Museum’s great spiral staircase. Here they learn safety techniques, leadership skills, Sherpa culture, and the life lessons embodied in Himalayan art. Frostbite, oxygen and the brain, and why things feel heavier the higher you go will be issues the kids will confront. Together, over the course of the evening, they will share an astonishing experience: a fully simulated ascent of the highest mountain on earth.
