I need to plan an offsite event for my group. Can you give me information about whether you offer such programs?

Hi, My name in Ben Matthews. I am a Lieutenant in the New Jersey National Guard currently deployed to Afghanistan. I am an avid rock climber although not very good and was hoping you could help me out. This is a rather odd request but I am attempting to build rock climbing wall here during my free time. I was a carpenter and have the skills I just need the plan. If you have any advice on where to start or designs I would be very greatful. Also where can I get the fake rocks for a relatively good price? Very Respectfully, Benjamin P.
