Rock Climbing Camp: Scaling the Heights

Denver Washington Park – Rock Climbing Camp

Our Rock Climbing Day Camp teaches campers climbing on some of the most iconic formations in the Denver area. Supported by our top-notch instructors, campers master the basics of climbing, knot tying, belaying, and rappelling as they ascend a variety 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.

Although there are no prerequisite skills or experience needed, rock climbing campers should have a desire to climb and learn more.

Camp Director

Nate Thoreson

I love working with kiddos in the outdoors and in particular, that Mother Nature teaches adaptability. I enjoy showing kids how to change gears when thrown curve balls and help find their own natural path of learning and growing.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blue’s Clues? It was the most successful kids show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it. Why was Blues Clue’s so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

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.
