The mission of the La Vida Rock Gym is to provide a safe, fun, and encouraging environment for kids and adults as they learn and practice climbing and belaying skills.

Our programs offer:

  • Team-building experiences
  • Celebration events (birthday parties, graduation parties)
  • Development of character, perseverance, and self-esteem
  • Skill training at beginner and intermediate climbing levels
  • Physical fitness


Open Gym
Open Gym is our public climbing program, offering a welcoming environment to climbers of all ages and abilities. We also host theme nights and other fun events.

Private Events
Our facility is available to host private events, such as birthday parties, team-building workshops, or school climbing courses. 

Classes and Lessons
Youth and adults can learn to climb through semi-private lessons at our gym. Participants ages 14 and older can also learn to belay.



The rock gym consists of an 8' by 80' bouldering traverse and 25' vertical walls with eight top-rope climbs, including a roof section. We maintain a variety of routes ranging from easy to difficult. We currently use holds from Metolius, Entre Prises, Nicros, and Three Ball Climbing.


The rock gym is located in the Bennett Center at Gordon College.
From Route 128 take Exit 17 for Grapevine Road, Beverly Farms/Wenham.
Turn at the end of the ramp to head west on Grapevine Road (towards Wenham).
The Bennett Center will be the first building on your left.
Parking is available next to the Bennett Center and across the street.
