Gym Hours

Safety, individual attention, and quality instruction are always our main priorities. Rock climbing incorporates a wide variety of skills, challenges, and learning opportunities for youth aged 6 to 18 that you won’t find anywhere else. 

Trust and Teamwork

Learning to climb provides youth with the opportunity to grow within a fun, social environment. Not only does it get youth physically active, it also teaches youth to trust the coaches and thier peers who spot, hold ropes, and build anchors for them. 

Although climbing is primarily an “individual” sport, it still requires a healthy amount of teamwork. It fosters strong communication skills and challenges each climber differently, which can help teach youth to respect personal differences. 

Strength and Decision Making Skills

Rock climbing builds strength, body awareness, and self-esteem. Climbing is more than fun. It empowers youth with a sense of accomplishment, helps them learn new skills, and is a great way to connect with the natural environment.

Our climbing camps allow youth to go beyond their limits, push forward when they’re scared, and uncover their own physical and emotional strength. Every time a climber takes to the wall, they’ll make countless critical decisions. This will help them develop the skills to manage tough and quick decision making in the real world.

Respect and Responsibility

During our summer day camps, we actively teach respect within the facility and encourage youth to be responsible for their spaces and personal belongings. 

Our outdoor climbing areas also offer youth a chance to visit important spaces within the climbing community. These sites are also near popular hiking trails, residential areas, and private property. As a result, we strongly express the importance of our “Leave no Trace” principle. This principle applies to everything from tidying the snack area to staying on trail when we are hiking as a group. 

For many youth, climbing is their first exposure to structured outdoor recreation. These lessons are very likely the ones kids will carry with them far beyond their time at camp.
