Kids Climb Mt. Everest at the Rubin Museum!

At this sixth annual "ultimate sleepover adventure," outdoors-loving kids will learn about what it takes to climb Mt. Everest, from the basics of camping and safety to the teamwork necessary to keep the expedition going. Led by Robert Anderson, a veteran of eight Everest expeditions, participants "scale" the five floors of the museum, encountering snow, ice and rocks that could avalanche (all faux, of course), all the while exploring the culture of the Himalayas and dining on traditional Sherpa fare. At night, the climbing team retires to tents on the main floor to share stories of yeti (the abominable snowman) and—if possible—get some shut-eye. Limited to 40 participants; registration required. Ages 9 to 12.
