Our Rock Climbing Day Camp gets campers climbing, scaling some of Boulder’s most iconic formations and learning the rock climbing ropes. Supported by our top-notch instructors, campers master the basics of knot tying, belaying, rappelling and climbing as they ascend a range of routes and rock types.
Campers take on activities designed just for them in teams grouped by grade—2nd – 4th graders make up our Skills Camp, while 5th – 7th graders join the Adventure Team—broadening their technical skills and conquering more challenging climbs as they gain comfort and competence.
Rock Climbing campers ideally should have experienced climbing before — on a rock wall, climbing gym, or even on natural rock. Although there are no prerequisite skills or experience needed, kids should have a desire to climb and learn more.

Places We Go: Crown Rock, Elephant Buttress, Nip Tuck
Campers hone their climbing skills through bouldering practice, learning the ins and outs of climbing safety and ethics, climbing commands, proper spotting, hazard identification and footwork and body positioning techniques.
Campers get comfortable with carabiners, stoppers, camalots and belay devices as they practice equipment setup, traditional gear placement, identifying natural anchors, tying knots and using their helmets and harnesses at local crags.
Every day, we take campers out to climb at some of Boulder’s best crags, tackling a range of rock types, styles and levels of difficulty at world-renowned sites.
While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.OUR APPROACH TO SAFETY
