Climbing Camp

For ages 6-12 yrs

Our climbing camps are an opportunity for new and experienced climbers to advance their climbing skills and knowledge. On the first day of camp we will evaluate skill, natural talent and maturity and then divide the participants into groups based on who we feel will work best together.

Our climbing camps operate with one instructor for every six participants, which allow us to group youth according to similar abilities and maturity and create an excellent opportunity for focus and advancement of skill.

Throughout the week, the participants will work through skills inlcuding knot tying, how to belay, movement patterns and spotting. Participants are expected to be able to assist in the process of holding ropes and spotting and follow instructions readily. These skills are essential to the safety of all participants.

Climbers will have an opportunity to rappel, rope climb, and boulder, building on their basic skills while challenging themselves and tackling as many problems as possible.
