Rock Climbing Camp

Climbing wall instruction for boys and girls entering grades 4-10.

Each session will have a minimum of 12 climbers and a maximum of 20.  Our instruction is personalized and takes place predominately in small groups.  We utilize a coaching and mentoring approach to teaching progressive climbing skills.  Each student will be grouped based on age and climbing ability (i.e. beginner, intermediate, high intermediate, advanced).  Parents are welcome to request that friends/siblings be grouped together.  Each student will be assigned a climbing coach for the week who will provide ability appropriate instruction, feedback, and encouragement during each climbing session.   Instructional program will include:

  • Climbing Safety and Risk Management
  • Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced Technique
  • Beginner and Intermediate Belay Instruction
  • Face and Crack Climbing Technique
  • Fitness and Training Concepts
  • Injury Prevention
  • Knots and Hitches
  • Bouldering
  • Introduction to Climbing Competitions

  1. Daily Overview, Goal Setting, and Warm-Up
  2. Demonstration and modeling of climbing techniques
